I think if you wish to sell it as a whole lot, your best bet would be to sell to a dealer, in which case the price per piece would need to be quite low. You could try getting a booth at a local antiques or pottery and glass show, or perhaps try to sell the lot in an auction.

Another idea...If you itemize on your taxes, you could donate the glass to a charity thrift store in which case you decide the value and get that money back at tax time.

Do you have any photos of your glass?

Thank you, I think the tax deduction sounds like my best option and I did not know you could do that, I learned allot. I can take some pictures and post tomorrow, but most are packed up, they are mostly birds , fruit, bowls and statues.
Thank you
Brenda

Brenda, we do have our own Glass Market Place where members can list their own glass. All you need to do is to place photographs, a description and a price. Keep 'bumping' the topic on (say) a weekly basis to keep the topic fresh in people's minds.
