Using Unwanted Antiques and Heirlooms to Fund Meaningful Memories

Having the opportunity to create lifelong memories while enjoying experiences that provide meaning and satisfaction can seem like a fanciful dream that has little chance of turning into a reality yet for a growing number of our clients they have been able to do just that.

Antiques and heirlooms that do not align with either your lifestyle or personal taste and are lying unused and unseen in closets, attics, and basements can be used to help you create memorable experiences.

Think about it.

By using your unwanted antiques to finance trips and adventures you have the benefit of cleaning out items that you no longer need or desire. Indeed, it can be the perfect solution when trying to work out how to fund new and sought-after experiences.

Here are the action steps you must take:

The first step is to determine the true market value of the items. Don’t let input from friends and family who are not familiar with the business prompt you to make vacation plans and commitments before first discovering what your items are worth. Contact us and let us assess what you have and its worth. You might be surprised by the value of your possessions.

Once the assessment is completed you must decide how you wish to sell the items. These include auction platforms and houses, Etsy, eBay, and experts in buying and selling antiques and collectibles such as Syl-Lee. You may very well be able to turn your items into cash quickly. Whether you decide to work with Syl-Lee or not, we’d be happy to guide you and answer any questions you might have.

Once you understand the value of your items and have clarity on how you wish to sell them, you should move rather quickly. The antiques market can be very volatile, and the value of your items can fluctuate.

Selling unwanted items can give you the desired funds for many of the things you wish to do and will enable you to reflect upon these items with renewed appreciation, even though you no longer wished to own them!
