Now of course the above cartoon is an exaggeration, but not by as much as you might imagine! On Sunday April 8th, a truck driven by two of our employees pulled into our warehouse, and it was FILLED with the entire collection of a dealer/collector who had decided to consign everything he had to us (more about our employees picking it up below). The next morning we received a truck delivery of over one TON (2,000 pounds) of movie posters from another dealer who had decided to quit the business. And just two weeks later a collector drove to us with his vehicle filled to overflowing with choice posters he needed to sell!

Now we are the ONLY movie poster auction there is where this is not that remarkable, and, because we own an entire city block, we can easily accommodate even these kinds of massive collections. And of course most days we receive ten or twenty packages sent to us by some of our over 900 consignors, and those don't pose a problem either!

But because we auction on SUCH a massive scale (2,000 to 2,500 items most weeks and well over 100,000 items a year) we ALWAYS need more consignments. Here are our most common types of consignors:
1) Dealers who are looking to sell all their slow moving inventory at one time, so they can reinvest the proceeds into items that are more salable.
2) Dealers who have just purchased items or entire collections specifically intending to "flip" most or all of what they bought to us, because this way they do no work (other than get the items to us).
3) Dealers looking to quit the business, usually because they are fed up with eBay, and/or the daily grind of creating auctions and sending packages, and they know there is no better way to liquidate (with no work) other than through us.
4) Collectors whose tastes have changed or who are looking to get rid of the items in their collection they least care about, so they can free up that money to buy new purchases, and without essentially getting a second job selling their items!
5) Collectors who have reached a point where they are ready to sell their entire collection, and they want to of course get the most money while not needing to try to sell the items one by one.

ALL of these types of consignors know that WE are the people who they have had honest dealings with for years (many up to 23 years) and they know it makes sense to entrust their valued collectibles to someone they KNOW they can 100% trust.

NOW ABOUT US COMING TO YOU TO PICK UP YOUR COLLECTION! If you have a VERY sizable collection (in terms of total value of the items, or the total number of items, or both), then it can be incredibly daunting to consider having to pack and ship everything (and this is greatly compounded when the owner is getting along in years, or when it is an estate situation, where the heirs know little about the items).

In these cases, we can offer to have employees come to YOU, and expertly pack the items into a truck and drive them back here. Now of course you need to pay the cost of that move, but often it will be less than the cost of simply sending the items, and there are two great benefits. First, you save the considerable time involved in packing a large collection (after first acquiring the packing material) and second, there is next to no chance of any damage to your valuable possessions!

So if YOU are a collector or dealer with a VERY sizable group of items that you have been considering selling, why not give ME, Bruce Hershenson, a call at 417 256 9616, and let's talk! The best time to reach me is during the week, during business hours, or you can email me your phone number and the best time to call you.

THINK ABOUT IT! Right now there are lots and lots of buyers for movie paper, and they are paying top prices for "better items". When you combine that with the fact that you can give your items to us and not have the slightest worry about our ability to auction a huge number of items or our honestly, then shouldn't you be giving me a call if you have thought about "selling out"?

Now of course, we also want your consignments if you DON'T have a huge amount of valuable items, but we can't send a truck to you (but you are still welcome to call me and discuss what you do have, and whether what we offer is best for you)! And you will be talking directly to the owner of the business, who has done nothing but this for 23 years. Because we have sold to over 34,000 movie paper collectors over the past 23 years, of course it makes sense that some fair number of them are reaching a point in their life where they have considered selling some or all of what they have. If this describes you, then why not give me a call soon at 417 256 9616?
