SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (April 24, 2018) – Have you had a family member try to pass down some of their prized possessions to you? Maybe Mom is downsizing and wants to give you her antique furniture, fine china and Hummel figurines? You don’t want to hurt her feelings, but you don’t want any of it, and neither does anyone else. In Why Don’t You Want My Stuff? author Josh Levine explains the disconnect between generations, the current buyer’s market and predicts future market trends.
“Imagine your parents graciously letting go of their unwanted ‘stuff,’ a Thanksgiving without passive aggressive comments and developing an understanding for what to collect in the future,” says author Josh Levine, envisioning the outcome.
Levine began his career in the estate and auction business in Pennsylvania over 20 years ago equipped with degrees in Accounting, Business Management and an Auctioneer Certification from the Pennsylvania State program. Eventually the hunt for antiques and collectibles led him to Scottsdale, AZ where he opened J. Levine Auction & Appraisal, a thriving auction house. The interesting people, family legends and amazing treasures inspired him to share his experiences.
Why Don’t You Want My Stuff? is an easy to understand, maybe even fun, guide through the secondary market of online retailing, auctions and estate sales. You’ll gather consignment insight, trend forecasting for a range of collectibles (from Pokemon to designer watches), appraisal techniques and buying tips. You’ll finish with an understanding of the disconnect between the generations as well as with actionable knowledge for your inevitable quest to liquidate “unwanted” stuff.
“It’s a must read for the “downsizer,” estate planner, fiduciary, and family members caught in the middle. Also has great tips for pickers and antique dealers alike,” an auctioneer raves Amazon.
