Consign Vs sell
Collecting is a fun passion and no one could ever imagine letting go of there prized collection. But life happens and bills come due, we run out of room, and big purchases need to be made. Whatever the case may be, the parting of a collection is always difficult. Not just are you letting go of your collection, it feels like your letting go of a part of yourself. We understand that. Every collector has been there at some point in time. Now that you have made that hard decision you are asking “what comes next?” In the Funko world you have many options:
1) Sell each item yourself. There are many places to do this online such as eBay and Facebook Marketplace. There are a few headaches with doing this though. Here are a few. (a) Taking the time to take good photos of each item, (b) joining all the places you want to list your collection, (c) getting lots of questions from people who never really buy, (d) shipping each item, (e) suffering through the negotiating process, and (f) trying to convince others you’re not a scammer. You’re doing all of this while also trying to protect yourself from scammers. Avoiding scammers as a buyer is a lot easier to do than avoiding them as a seller. As a buyer just simply make sure to use PayPal goods and services. PayPal protects the buyer. There is not a good paying service that does a good job of protecting both sides.
2) Sell it all to a store. This is a great way to move everything all at one time and be done with it. This one is easy so there are really no headaches. What you will get is a massive heart attack when they tell you how much they are willing to pay. Normally a store is going to offer around 50% of the value. Some places go even less than that. Every great once in a while a store will offer a little more than 50% worth. On “commons” we understand this logic. There are a lot of them out there and people are willing to sell them for cheap. More often than not, a store will have to hold on to the commons for a longer period of time and likely the value will drop on them by the time they sell. But on any Funko Pop that’s worth $50 or more, we feel this is just crazy. Don’t get us wrong, we understand that a store is there to make a profit. But having close to a 50% margin is a little absurd in our opinion.
3) (Our favorite option) Consign them to Kibler’s Kollectibles and Geek N Game. We feel this is really a compromise of the two and easier to do compared to your other options. All you have to do is bring them to Kibler’s Houston location or contact Kibler and make arrangements for him to come to you. After inspecting the condition of the collection, you could get an offer of up to 80% on everything valued at $50 or more and 50% on everything below $50. When you consign with Kibler’s Kollectibles, you get the huge advantage of getting your collection in front of buyers with almost no work. This allows you to turn your collection quick while getting more than the 50% offered at the store. You will likely get close to what you would get if you sold them on your own. We just cut out the hassle for you. When you consign with Kibler’s Kollectibles your items be put in a brick-and-mortar store AND listed on https://thegeekngame.shop/.
