5 - Selling old electronics ...

I have an old radio, TV, vacuum tubes and parts, hi-fi component, electric instrument, or electronic test set, and I want to sell it.

The club does not buy vintage electronics directly, but we do offer several venues to help you sell it to our members or other collectors. Each of our monthly meetings offers a free flea market and a small auction. There is a small commission for auction sales. Of course, there is no guarantee that items will sell in the flea market. Twice a year we offer larger meets with bigger flea markets and auctions. The larger auctions are more likely to garner better prices. These two events, RadioActivity and RadioFallFest, are normally in June and October respectively. Check the Calendar Page for dates and details. (If you have a lot of stuff to sell see the answer for radio estates below).

You can also put a classified ad in our monthly newsletter, Radio Age. Contact the editors, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Or check the Services section of our Useful Links page for web sites that let you list old radios for sale.

Antique Radio Classified is another publication where you can buy a listing for a reasonable fee.

While we do not endorse them, and do not always even like them, we have to admit (and sometimes even shop) online auctions such as eBay®. They can be very effective places to sell old radios and vintage electronics. By the way, if you are thinking of selling it and it has not been restored, do not plug it in!
