The widow of a late friend of mine is looking to sell the woodworking kit from his workshop. It's all pretty good stuff. Anyone know the best way of doing this? I don't expect she'll want to go down the eBay route, and will probably want to run an auction or workshop sale.

Thanks

Nick

Depends where you are in the country, but the likes of Bristol Design, The Old Tool Store, even David Stanley Auctions if it's really good stuff.

On Alf's website (Cornish Workshop) she has a list of good dealers. That might be a fair starting point.

Nick,


Over the years I have bought quite a few good quality tools, at reasonable prices from Gerry Dawson.

I'ts worth shopping around the dealers to get the best offers and I've always had straightforward dealings with him and his wife....

Why not pop them up for sale on here?

People are willing to travel for good quality items!

Sad to hear that Nick. There's a For Sale forum at the bottom of the main forum. 'm sure that there would be no problems putting it on there..

Good luck :mrgreen:

Edit : - Oh I see rule 11 puts the dampener on that idea.

Well, if she's really happy with a workshop sale or to run her own auction, and you, or someone trustworthy (!) with appropriate knowledge can be on hand to help, that's probably the easiest answer, as there's no transport to be arranged etc..
Alternatively, depending where she is, quite a lot of the generalist auction houses sometimes have slightly more specialised sales, when they concentrate on, say, workshop items. Peacocks in Bedford used to (probably still do) have weekly sales with a lot of workshop stuff anyway, but occasionally made a point of gathering really good quality stuff for a specially promoted sale. And if there was enough stuff in one place to justify it, they would organise on-site auctions.
