Find out if its worth selling. Replacements, Ltd. based in North Carolina buys old china patterns and resells them to people who may be looking to replace the serving dish that broke when someone thought they were being helpful washing up last Thanksgiving. (We all know someone who’s done something like that, right?)

Match your china to their extensive database and then ask for a purchase request. A buyer will contact you to let you know what pieces from that set they are currently purchasing and for how much. They will also let you know the best way to get your china to them.
