With leaner and tougher times already here or maybe around the corner for many of us, now is perhaps the time to have a good look around the house and take stock of the various valuables and collections built up during the good times. Is it time to say goodbye to some of them?
Often the biggest windfalls come from unexpected corners. Marc Tielemans who runs Let Us Auction It, Wiltshire’s only professional eBay auctioneering business, says that in many cases people just don’t realise the treasures they have around the house. Often, for example when an elderly relative passes away, the most valuable items are simply dumped or removed by the house clearance people. Things like World War greeting cards, military uniforms, badges and medals, antique jewellery, old watches and clocks, autograph books, toy soldiers and tinplate toys or GWR memorabilia. Or what about old cameras, old records, gramophones, instruments, vintage music sheets or Freemason regalia. All these things can potentially be worth a lot of money.
If you do find something unusual and are not sure what it may be worth, or you want to sell something, help and advice is available from Let Us Auction It. They can take professional photos and auction your valuables on the Internet where they will be seen by millions of potential buyers. With the value of Sterling so low at the moment, foreign buyers from all over the world are returning in large numbers and paying top money for all things British.
