How to Sell Antiques Online in Such a Time as This

These are troublesome times. It’s time we learned how to sell antiques online. For those of us in the antique or retail furnishing business, we are definitely cruising into uncharted waters. Social distancing, mandatory closings of non-essential businesses and daily news of more CV-19 outbreaks, have us all scrambling. There are several options for us. I’ve listed a few below. Feel free to share your successes in the comments below.

Southern Antiques & Accents

The lovely, friendly and well-stocked antique mall where I’m privileged to have my shops has recently closed temporarily. Social distancing and curbside delivery has been our uncomplicated, yet renowned customer service until now. Since the Alabama Governor, Kay Ivy, closed all non-essential businesses, we have continued to sell. We’ve been so fortunate that our customers love us enough to switch to online shopping. Check out our Facebook MarketPlace site as well as my products listed here on this site. New items are listed on both sites daily. Our store SAA is located at 254 S. Greeno Road in Fairhope, AL 36532.

Locally, on Facebook Marketplace there are several Trading Groups where dealers can cross-post their items. It is helpful for the customer if you list where the items are located. If you list an item in a town several miles away, be sure to add that the antique piece can be seen in person at your shop and add address.

  • Baldwin Co. Buy, Sell & Trade
  • Foley Buy/Sell/Trade
  • Cotton Belle Marketplace
  • Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Foley Buy/Sell/Trade
  • And so many others

CoziNest Antiques and Decor – We are Moving!

CoziNest Antiques and Decor has Moved

It is a bittersweet time at CoziNest Antiques and Decor. We are closing the “proverbial” doors to our booth at Daphne Antique Galleria. I’m sad to be leaving all the great people at the place I’ve lovingly called “DAG” for the last 3 years. I’ve had great times, made great friends and met so many wonderful customers. But, it is time to consolidate to one location instead of two, so I’m happy to announce my one and only shop. Please visit me at:

Our next Ladies Night Out, will be Tuesday March 19, 2019 from 6 – 8 pm. I hope you can stop by for a fun night with door prizes and a 10% discount throughout the mall.

Just so you know what you’ve missed at previous Ladies Nights:

One month in the Heart for Dixie booth, I served biscuits and gravy with sweet tea, y’all.

Last month in my new location, I served peach cobbler with whipped cream.

For March, how about mini cheesecakes with cherry topping? This will be delicious with a glass of wine while you shop!
