Ready to part with some of your collection?
The History Store offers two options for us to help you open up some storage space and convert your plastic kits, diecast models, or toy soldiers into cash! Your collectibles or model kits can be consigned for sale on the Internet and in our retail store, or we can make you an offer for a direct purchase of your collection. With consignment sales, you will share in the final sale price of the item via a 65% - 35% split (you keep the 65% and we pay any selling fees). Consignment is a great option if you are patient and want to get the best possible price for your collection. Alternatively, you may sell us your collection via direct purchase. This option is best if you prefer to quickly settle things or if you have a good understanding of the value of your collection.
How will this all work?
We are always buying, consigning, and selling collections of all sizes. If you have a collection to sell, please send a list and include all of the relevant details. These include: item name and number, manufacturer, scale (if appropriate), and a general statement about the item’s condition. If you have a specific asking price, please also include that. If you do not have a price in mind, we will review your list and send you an offer for a direct purchase based upon past sales of similar items. If your preference is to consign the collections, please just mention that when you send your list. Photos are helpful, but not required. You may also use a picture instead of sending a list so long as it is possible to clearly see what is in your collection.
If you are close to our New Hampshire retail store, you may bring the collection to us. Or, for a large collection located in our local area, we can arrange for inspection and pickup. For those outside of driving distance, please send the collection (after we have agreed upon terms of sale or consignment) via an insured shipping carrier. We can also help with the shipping labels and some of the shipping cost for larger collections.
