Estate Liquidation and Antique Buyers NYC

Unmatched Convenience
Opting for Showplace translates to a hassle-free process from start to finish. Unlike auction or online sales, we manage everything: from assessment and valuation to purchasing, packing, and pickup. This comprehensive approach is especially advantageous for large collections or when time constraints are pressing, eliminating the complexities and time demands typically involved in personal selling efforts.

Guaranteed Sale Price
Selling to us means receiving a predetermined, fair price for your items—be it a complete estate, a collection, or individual pieces. This guarantee removes the uncertainties associated with auctions or the waiting game of online sales, ensuring you get paid promptly upon item collection. Our approach contrasts sharply with auction houses, where high estimates come with no sales guarantees, often leading to disappointment and unforeseen delays.

Zero Fees
At Showplace, transparency and fairness are paramount. We don’t charge any fees to our clients, setting us apart from auction houses and online platforms that often deduct significant percentages from the sale price. Our model ensures that you know exactly what you’ll receive without any hidden costs or deductions.

Discretion and Privacy
Understanding the personal significance and sensitive nature of selling private belongings, we offer a discreet and confidential service. Our process respects your privacy, ensuring a smooth and respectful transaction.

Capability to Purchase Extensively
Our ability to purchase a wide variety of items, regardless of value, sets us apart. Unlike typical auction houses that might only accept select pieces, Showplace is equipped to buy a broader spectrum of goods, thanks to our extensive infrastructure, including a 40,000 square foot gallery in Manhattan and a 26,000 square foot warehouse in Astoria. This capability allows us to offer solutions for entire estates, not just select items.

Removal and Cleanup Services
Beyond just purchasing, Showplace offers additional services like removal and cleanup, further easing the transition process. Our team is prepared to manage the logistics of clearing out spaces, ensuring a tidy and orderly conclusion to your selling experience.

Competitive Pricing
With over 30 years in the business and a robust infrastructure to support our operations, Showplace is positioned to offer competitive pricing. Our experience and resources enable us to provide strong offers, making us a preferred choice over competitors.

Working with Showplace Fine Art & Estate Buyers is not just about selling items; it’s about experiencing a seamless, efficient, and beneficial process that respects your time, privacy, and financial expectations. Our comprehensive approach, coupled with a legacy of trust and excellence, makes us the go-to solution for anyone looking to sell estate items, art, antiques, and more in New York City. Let us make your selling experience as straightforward and rewarding as possible.

I was left alone in an UES apartment. How was I going to downsize to a one BR assisted living apartment? A moving management professional suggested I contact Andrea Baker at Showplace. Glad I did. Andrea acted quickly, but with no high pressure tactics. She came and took pictures, made a lot of notes, and got back to me the next day with an offer. The items I wanted to get rid of ranged from ordinary household stuff, furniture, fine china and bric-a-brac, art by Joan Miro, sculpture by Silas Seandel and a large collection of Steuben animals. Her offer was acceptable, and a move out date was set. Everything that was being taken away was marked with a color coded label. Andrea arrived on time on moving day with her assistant and moving team. Everything that was going was packed and loaded on to their truck. The whole process left me with a good feeling even though most of my possessions were going bye bye. Another nice thing. I had a sculpture that I wanted to ship to my daughter in Idaho. Andrea Took it and arranged to have it packed and shipped for me with no extra handling charge or commission.

I had a very pleasant experience working with Andrea to help sell an artist’s entire collection of sculptures and paintings. Andrea came to Connecticut personally to help with the project. Andrea did an amazing job. The entire day was very organized and handled with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with all of you again in the future. Jesse Meucci

Showplace was so easy to deal with! After a first email with pictures, I immediately got a response with an estimate. Selling all my furniture in one go was a huge relief. Hassle free and quick. Shawn Leventhal walked me through the process and within a week, they picked up my furniture. Highly recommend for estate sales or just redecorating your home.

Had an incredible experience selling my mother's art deco furniture in her Park avenue apartment. We had a tight timeline to get all the furniture out and Showplace was able to get me an offer and pick everything up within days of initially calling them. The moving crew was very professional and efficient! They were able to disassemble, wrap and move out our office, living room set, 3 beds, and a vanity all within 3 hours. Andrew was very responsive and helpful in the days leading up to the pick up, and Sean was a joy to work with on the day of the pick up. They bought everything outright, so no need for me to wait for anything to sell before receiving a check. 10/10 would recommend Showplace to anyone looking to sell antique furniture in the city!

We were downsizing and closed our New York apartment on Park Avenue. We had art, antiques and miscellaneous objects for sale. The Showplace Team was a dream to work with.They were patient as we determined which items we wanted to sell. Andrea was exceptionally responsive, professional, and accommodating. There were issues with the building but the Showplace team remained cool and professional and made everything work smoothly.

My experience with dealing with Showplace was excellent. Shawn showed great and experienced behavior while helping me with the sale of my items. Was always very kind and also made sure the pickup of them was done properly and helped to make sure all was well done. Apart this, he was very nice and helpful when I later visited your showroom and expressed my desire to purchase one of your items. He showed me around and checked that my choice was good and the item I purchased worked and any repairs necessary were done. I would recommend your Showroom and the good services of Shawn.

Years ago we had inherited a large home's worth of pieces - crystal, African masks, signed prints, water colors, tiny sculptures. It was mostly not our vibe, but we could not figure out how to part with it. The variation in types and value would have required us to sell each of about 100 pieces individually, through different channels. Some through consignment, some auctions, some EBay. That was too daunting to cope with. We turned to Showplace. We sent pictures of everything in advance to give them an idea of what we had. Shawn came to our house one day, looked each item over, taking most (but rejecting a few). Then he offered a price that we found equitable for the bundle. Then yhey packed it all up and wrote me a check. At the end of the day, we felt relieved they had helped us part with so many things that no longer sparked joy, and were hopeful that they will find a place in a home where they do.

Dealing with Amos and Andrea from Showplace to sell the contents of my mother’s estate was a first class, stress-free experience. I met with auction houses, other estate buyers, silver specialists, vintage designer clothing buyers and people that arrange tag sales to sell my mother’s vast collection of designer clothes, bags, furs, paintings, sculptures, silver, furniture, tableware and accessories. Amos made my life easier by buying everything at once and paying up front. Amos and Andrea struck just the right note of gentleness and sympathy while dealing with us at a difficult time. I highly recommend Showplace for buying estates or even for downsizing.

Showplace Fine Art & Estate Buyers were a real pleasure to deal with, and we received a very satisfying sale price for my late mother's estate contents. Andrea and Amos spent far more time examining my mother's jewelry, artwork, ornaments and furniture than any of the other prospective estate buyers, and were quick to address any questions we had. In the end, their offer was well informed and significantly better than the competition. I have no hesitiation in recommending them highly.
