From picking up your items, to sending you a check - we handle it all.

Tell Us What You Have

The first step in the process is for us to understand the items you’re interested in selling. We have a quick 8 minute online form which leads you through the process of describing your items. Depending on the items involved we might send out our lead appraiser to review them in person. If we’re a good fit to handle the project, we’ll schedule a time to pick up your items.

We Sell Your Items

Our appraisers research and identify all the items, then they’re professionally photographed and cataloged online. In addition to Brown Button’s 10,000 local email subscribers and 13,000 social media followers, all the items will be available to millions of active auction users through our online platform. After the auction, we handle all the shipping to any out-of-state buyers.
