I have no idea where to start-please help!

We inherited a whole houseful of nice things- many are very old antiques. We have them just shut up in storage, we have no idea how to sell them. I know I won't get a good price with craigslist, and we can't have an estate sale since they are in storage and not in a house. Is there someone I can hire to do this for me? Any help is so appreciated! Thanks!

I would call an auctioneer. I used to work for one that was very nice. It would be best for you if you could get your items into an auction that has your antiques as well as other people's antiques as the larger antique auctions grow the largest crowds.

The other option is to call some antique dealers in your area. See if some are buying.. They might buy some from you.
