Scott Gram Antiques was founded in 1982 and is a professional, registered and incorporated business, fully licensed. Gram is a past member of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA), a world recognized appraisal organization. Though our focus today is on buying rather than formal appraisals, this knowledge and expertise informs all our valuations.
We encourage you to see other dealers to obtain their best prices, then meet with Scott Gram for a fair and impartial evaluation. He knows today’s markets and will transparently share his information with you, providing information on comps and the market in general so that your selling decisions are also informed by honest and reliable information.
We do not buy or evaluate/appraise antiques online. Scott Gram is a specialist in the antique field with an impeccable reputation with customers and other professionals. He is a reliable, trusted source of information, assistance, and honest dealing in the Phoenix metropolitan area. He maintains close relationships and contacts with other reputable and trusted dealers and auctioneers around the area and country.
Consignment stores can be an option for individual items or small collections and also for home furniture and accessories. Consignment stores charge (sometimes sizeable and escalating) fees and are dependent upon their foot traffic and location as well as the market generally.
If you are liquidating an estate, downsizing or selling all or part of a treasured collection, these are important financial decisions that deserve careful consideration backed by trusted information. Increasingly, younger family members may not have room or the desire for items you need to liquidate, so passing items down to family members may not be the best solution. You have several options.
You can sell your items one at a time in online forums like eBay, Etsy, Craig’s List and others. This is very time consuming and labor intensive. These forums charge fees for listing items for sale and also for collecting payments through PayPal, Apple Pay or the use of credit cards. Online sales can be difficult and require an immense amount of time and exposure when items are returned or broken in shipment, for instance.
“After having worked closely with Scott Gram for many years as a fellow dealer and friend, I can tell you he is the most honorable, honest and knowledgeable antique dealer in the area. He knows his stuff and if confronted with something he doesn’t YET know well, he contacts other experts to draw on their knowledge and expertise. He has wide-ranging contacts in the antiques business nationwide. I want to inherit his list of contacts. Scott is a jewel. You will be happy dealing with such a professional.”
“I have been friends and have conducted business with Scott Gram for over 30 years. He knows more about high end antiques and jewelry than any person I have ever meet. I would recommend him if you are selling anything of great value. From a 5 carat diamond to a $100,000.00 oil painting. No one has helped me learn more about values and antiques than Scott Gram. Number 1 in my book.”
We pride ourselves on transparency, honesty, integrity and responsiveness in a business field where these professional ethical standards can sometimes be lacking. We have been in the antiques business since 1982 and we cherish the reputation we have earned by respecting our clients and dealing fairly with them at all times. We are a professional, incorporated business and are happy to provide recommendations and referrals upon request.
