1876 Antique Child Life Picture Heliotype Book Victorian Children

Our customers frequently call asking if we take books and usually the answer is 'No'. Most books have hardly any resale value and even antique books just aren't much in demand as no one seems to read anymore and everything is available on the Internet. Last month I listed several dozen book from the 1800's - all of which were in great condition for the age. Here we are a month later and only one sold but I was glad to see it find a good home.

Furniture is so hard to sell as it's the type of thing everyone wants to get rid of to the point of giving it away for free. This traditional antique desk had been refinished and was a premium item in my opinion but I had to wait many months for the right person to come along who was willing to pay a fair price. I have a store and can sit on things sometimes but if I was trying to get this out of my house I would have sold it for a lot less.
