Occasionally we buy stoves and take stoves on consignment.
We give priority consideration these factors:
* Overall condition of the stove - poor, fair, good, has it been restored?
* Completeness of the stove - does it have all of its parts? are items broken, missing or damaged?
* Condition and completeness of nickel trim
* Uniqueness and rarity of the stove
* Deliverability - Can the stove be delivered by owner to Good Time Stove Co at our Goshen, MA 01032 location
* Asking Price
When you send photos, please make clear your intention to the sell or consign the stove, the stove's location, and whether or not you can deliver the stove. Lastly, please include your asking price. We understand you may not a have firm asking price in mind, but if you can supply a ballpark we can start the ball rolling.
Due to high demand, we ask you to kindly allow 2 - 3 week to receive a reply to inquiries related to sales and consignment inquiries.
With consignments, you warehouse the stove while we seek a buyer. Payment for the stove is submitted when a buyer is found. If this is an option that appeals to you just let me know and we can discuss it further.
Below is a collection of useful ideas to help you sell your antique stove.
1. Antique shops and stores in your area. Look in the phone book under "Antiques" and also "Appliances." Do a local business search on Google maps by using these categories. Call stores and inquire as to whether they buy antique stoves. You can arrange for someone from the store to drop by your home, or you can bring the stove to the shop. Call the businesses and mention what type of stove you have and the year it was produced. Describe any unusual features, such as a clock, timer or special finish. An interested business may ask you to email photos, so take digital pictures of your stove from as many angles as possible, including close-ups of any imperfections such as scratches or dings.
