If your Offer to Purchase qualifies for drop-off, please contact us.

Note that drop-offs will not be processed at the time of delivery. Thank you.


  1. To get the process started, you'll need to get an Offer to Purchase for the item(s) you wish to sell.  We will need the manufacturer (or brand) and pattern name(s) of the tableware or collectibles.

    • If you know the pattern name(s), choose the "I Know My Pattern" button on the "Sell to Us Request Form" page. 

    • If the brand and/or pattern is unknown, click here for more detailed pattern identification instructions, or choose the "I Don't Know My Pattern" button on the "Sell to Us Request Form" page.  Also review important information about identification, Image Usage and Licensing

  2. We'll send you an email stating the prices we can pay for the pieces in excellent condition and our offer's terms and conditions.
