In response to the negative review posted by UNMMEWS, please be aware that the individual is misrepresenting the situation that occurred. The consignor previously sold several items through my store and was thrilled with the results. When he brought in the figurine and told me he thought it was worth thousands, I clearly told him that if he believed that, then my store was not where he should sell it. I advised he take it and sell himself on eBay or wherever he thought he could command that price. I told him on the spot I could get no more than a few hundred for it at best. He chose to leave it with me and told me to do my best. All available sales records readily available online (and there were several) support my pricing. I successfully sold the item as promised.
As it turns out, the asking price of several thousand $ he found online was just that, an ASKING price, not a sales record, and the person asking that ridiculous price not only has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, but also was sued by Royal Copenhagen (the maker of the figurine in question) for trademark infringement - not a reliable source of information.
Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, and I fully support free speech. But please do not let one ill-informed person's opinion shade your experience. I have 200+ very satisfied consignors and many more buyers who have had wonderful experiences with my store. Please come see for yourself. Thank you
