A local company is helping people in Central Virginia sell their items around the world.
Everyone has that old coin, clock or piece of jewelry that they've been holding onto for years, because you never really knew what it's really worth. EbidLocal.com is going to take care of the guesswork, by appraising your stuff.
They helped one Richmonder sell a pair of chairs, that you might sell for $10 or $20 at a garage sale. They sold on one of their auctions for $275 each.
A ring that a reputable jewelry store offered $1,600 for sold for 4 times that price online.
One key is that the eBidLocal.com value is based on what people will pay. The other is that you're reaching a global audience. For example, a Shell station sign made $1,000 for a seller in Virginia Beach who found a buyer in Australia.
To find out what your stuff would be worth at auction, go to http://ebidlocal.com/NBC12. Fill out the form, making sure to put the condition of the item, what it's made of and if there are any marks or labels on it. You can add pictures of it, as well. eBidLocal.com will give you an auction appraisal. We'll share some on 12 news tomorrow.
Representatives from eBidLocal.com will be in the Call 12 center Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Everyone who calls in or fills out the form online will get a response about the value of their items.
