Tried and tested way to sell your valuables

March 2024

Do you have unwanted jewellery or watches cluttering up your home, but are unsure of the best way to realise the value of your items?

There’s a constant stream of advertising about sending off cherished goods to a dealer who can convert them into cash in a flash.

However, there’s another tried and tested option, closer to home. Antique specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt have been valuing and auctioning clients’ treasures for decades.

This expertise gives clients the reassurance and confidence to know that GTH will work hard to achieve the best price for their auction items.

Crucially their charges have not increased in eight years and unlike some rivals they have never charged a listing fee.

Instead, clients old and new – the department re-located to Sedgemoor Auction Centre, Junction 24, North Petherton, at the start of 2024 – benefit from expert advice on the best route for their particular items.

This in-depth knowledge helps with attracting sellers and buyers to the venue. The Somerset Auction Rooms most recent sales have enjoyed a commanding selling rate of over 96% of items offered being snapped up. In the latest specialist jewellery, watches and silverware sale a private vendor from Taunton saw their collection of jewellery sell for over £11,000.

A beautiful Art Deco 18ct gold sapphire and diamond ring sold for £700, while a 9ct gold cased half hunter pocket watch made £420 – more than double its estimate.

More auctions are being held more often at Sedgemoor, with the advantage of the site’s close proximity to the motorway and ample free on-site parking and a café.
