Buying Guides

Expert tips to inspire the growing success of your unique collections

Smart Collecting with Live Auctions

Whether your interests lie in classic toys, antiques, vintage jewelry, or great works of art, you can find the pieces you want to round out your collections through live auctions with Sotheby’s, Swann, Phillips, Wright, Stout, and DUMBO on eBay. Embrace the nostalgia of 20th century board games, models, vintage trains and toys, and comic books available through inventory liquidation, or fill shelves and display cases with vintage glassware, textiles, and furniture offered through estate sales. In addition, cash in on real estate and automotive deals from repossessed houses, cars, trucks, and even vintage hunting and fishing collectibles. Stock up on fishing lures and collectible duck decoys easily with a large and varied inventory.


Discover a cache of fine jewelry showcasing precious and semi-precious stones such as sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds on consignment, or find a one-of-a-kind engagement ring to express your love and commitment. Choose vintage pieces like statement necklaces, drop earrings, or tennis bracelets featuring stunning combinations of gold, silver, or platinum paired with onyx, amethyst, or rubies. For a classic look, select traditional strings of pearls made from natural or cultured pearls.

Art and Decor

Engage in live bidding on decorative pieces for your home and office, or invest in original pieces of art created by world renowned and local painters, sculptors, and sketch artists. Decorate a room with a drawing by Picasso, a painting by Matisse, a reproduction print by Andy Warhol, or ceramics produced by regional craftsmen.


For entertainment lovers, fill your favorite nooks with memorabilia that celebrates the sports teams, movies, and music that best represent your life. You may find autographed guitars and vintage records from your favorite bands. Sports fans can acquire signed baseballs, footballs, and other sporting gear.
