Antique stores and Flea Markets

Retailers generally know what an item will sell for within 90 days. Look at your local Antique stores, flea markets, trade days and other “retail” outlets.  Ask them for an antique trunk appraisal. Please note that if you were to sell your trunk that you may not be able to get what a retail shop can.
