As you can see from the Estate Pipes Page and Sold Pipes Pages, I buy, list and sell many beautiful pipes. I list only the nicest pipes I receive. I will buy part or all of your collection, or list them on a consignment basis on this website. Please Contact Me if you would like to discuss your pipes.
Outright Purchase of Your Pipes:
Although I do take consignments, I have come to prefer to purchase collections outright unless the collection is extremely large and high grade, making an outright purchase impractical. In a purchase arrangement, I will make an estimate based on research and experience of what your pipes will sell for, and will pay approximately 50% of that estimate. You will receive your money at once and I accept all risk that my estimate is not correct.
What I Do with Consignment Pipes:
All pipes are professionally cleaned and/or restored, Ozone Deodorized and Sanitized by me in my shop, and carefully examined for flaws or other issues (I have repaired and restored pipes for nearly 50 years, so I know what to look for). Pricing is carefully researched to determine a fair price for both buyer and seller, then each pipe is photographed, and listed on my website with an honest and complete described.
I field all emails and phone calls, and answer any questions a prospective buyer might have. I will send additional photos when requested. I invoice the pipes when sold, collect payments and carefully package and ship your pipes when they sell.
On the first of each month following the sale of one or more of your pipes I will send a spread sheet showing everything that has happened with each pipe, and a full accounting. Proceeds will then be deposited in your PayPal account, or a check will be mailed to you, whichever you prefer.
40% of the selling price for the first $200, and 30% of the amount above that. There are no additional charges.
If you have pipes you’re considering selling, please Contact Me. I’ll be happy to discuss them with you.
