Does anyone know of a consultant who evaluates household items (paintings,etc.) and sells them on a commission basis?

These were recommended by the family's law office to me. I haven't worked with them. Peggy's Used Treasures; Antique Market Place on Ortega "Sam DeLisle"; and "Treasures of Ojai" I also have a business card for The Estate Sale Co. http://antiquecentermall.com/

I wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole after reading the KEYT story. ================= https://www.keyt.com/news/newschannel-3-investigates/santa-barbara-women-say-they-were-ripped-off-by-consignment-shop-owner/1063418758

Montecito Treasures Consignment: Last night on KEYTV there was an expose of them, for never paying their consignors!!!

Really? That sucks. But as someone who has consigned items, you actually don't get paid unless the item sells and you have to specify how you want the item handled after the consignment period runs - usually it either gets donated if you say to donate, or it gets returned to you. Was that covered in this expose? Because if not then it sounds like it was possibly one-sided.

James Main. A nicer guy doesn't walk this planet. Knowledgeable and fair.

Montecito Treasures Consignment store on 617 E. Gutierrez 1.805.450.5977 They sell, and probably know reputable people that can help you. [[[[ Also, Barry Sweet - auctioneer sells property. 1.805.680.0588 ... www.sweetauctions.com bnsweet@cox.net ]]]] Also, if you have good quality artwork / paintings, go talk with James Main on W. De La Guerra.... across from De La Guerra Plaza... He's really nice and can talk with you about your artwork, (helps if you have the provenance ).

That store on E. Gutierrez, sells on commission. It's closer to Milpas street on the right side of the street. Trying to remember the name. Are your items new, vintage or collectible???
