    I'll get some pics later. This is a huge set of dishes, coffee cups, serving bowls, platers, salad, side, soup bowls, Denby pattern by Luxor. Very nice set that will end up at Replacements Limited. I'd rather use them for targets than see this bastards get em. But not my choice. I'm sure they're worth several times what RL will offer. Anyone needing a nice set of very nice dishes let me know.

    My mom had several sets of china, glassware, silver, etc... They offered nearly nothing. Certainly not what my mom spent there filling out sets and replacing broken pieces. Not my favorite place.

    We've bought several pieces at Replacements and they were EXPENSIVE! But, when you have an old pattern you want to keep...….. whatch gonna do?

    The best idea might be to find a GOOD consignment shop and see if they will sell them for you for a cut of the proceeds. That's NOT Goodwill or a donation store. You'll probably get more than "selling" them to RL.

    Try Antique Marketplace and The Red Collection, both in Greensboro.

    I found a bunch of Sterling in an old burnt house. One complete set & a bunch of odds & ends. They offered me about 15-20% of what spot figured out to be. I told them I'd just scrap it. They tried to tell me it was too nice of a complete set to scrap. But they wouldn't come up on their offer. I scrapped it. They want to buy for pennies & then recell at retail+. The Olde Dragon has filled in our pattern over the years & spent big bucks, but I'm not gonna let her sail this set & then they market at retail+.

    There has to be a market other than RL.

    You just have to find it. If Antique Mktplace and Red Collection don't want 'em, ask them where you can sell these at retail.

    I wouldn’t give them any business just based on the anti gun billboards they run. They own the big digital one on the highway right by their store.

    I ran into the same problem about a decade ago. RL offered me pennies on the dollar for a complete set. I ended up selling the set on CL for less than I thought it was worth but 10x more than RL offered. I made a few bucks, RL made no bucks. I was happy with the outcome.

    I would pay The Olde Dragons family top dollar for them & use them for targets before I'd let RL have them.
    She & her sister packed them away after I told them I needed to get pics & a list of em. I'm gonna unpack & figure just what's here this week & then I'll list. Probably close to 100+ pieces we'll have to sail.
