Hello. Thank you so so much for your response. Would you have any idea where I could sell it or who would be interested in buying it?

Hi,

You are very welcome!

There is not a transparent list of potential buyers, hence the auction industry as whole.

I recommend contacting auction businesses in your area to see if they will consign this for you.

As well, Facebook Marketplace is gaining in popularity as an online selling platform.

And Ebay is always an option with an international 24/7 platform.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you here.

Sincerely,

Nora
