ANTIQUE = VINTAGE = RETRO = COUNTRY

Buying & Selling

Please be aware of the following:

  • We are located in Brisbane, Queensland (some people visiting our website think that we are Paddington, Sydney)
  • We do not buy goods directly over the counter, unless by prior arrangement
  • We do not sell goods on consignment
  • Valuations are written documents prepared by professionals and come at a cost
  • Appraisals are informal advice given by those with industry experience
  • We are unable to give detailed appraisals on individual items via email
  • The Centre does not offer advice regarding pricing via email

If you wish to sell something send an email to info@paddingtonantiquecentre.com with the following information:

  • ONE clear image per item is all that is required  – Please ensure you resize your images to a low resolution and send in jpeg format or your email will not reach us.
  • One email per person please – if you have a number of small items, lay them out on a table and photograph the table top. A good dealer will quickly know if they are interested or not.
  • Please advise where the goods are located
  • Include information you have on the item
  • Include your contact details
  • Dealers will contact you directly
  • Dealers who operate out of centres are generally unable to handle large wardrobes, beds, & lounge suites as space is at a premium
  • Please do not send us information that is currently being advertised on Gumtree or similar, or if you have sent your information to other centres in Brisbane.
  • Please be patient, our priority is serving the customers in the Centre. Your email will be responded to as soon as possible.
  • If you do not hear back from a dealer, within a reasonable time, no one is interested in purchasing.
