Consignments & Appraisals
NHAC owners Sam and Jason Hackler offer free verbal antique and fine art appraisals on a daily basis. They are founding members of the former Granite State Antiques and Appraisers Association and were principals of the Active Appraisal Group. For more than a decade, Jason Hackler authored a monthly appraisal column for New Hampshire Magazine.
Throughout each year, Sam and Jason regularly volunteer their expertise at various fundraiser appraisal events for historical societies and other New England non-profit organizations.
Why choose NHAC for your consignments?
New Hampshire Antique Co-op has the experience, the expertise, the customer loyalty and the right setting to sell nearly any type of antique, collectible or vintage item. We display your items and have the ability to show items off at their best in our architect-designed shop, featuring varied room settings, showcases and galleries.

By selling your antiques at NHAC, you are guaranteed results. The asking price of your items will be reviewed with you first. Consigning objects brings more peace of mind than selling via auction because you will already know the selling price in advance.

What types of objects does NHAC take on consignment?

What does it cost to consign items?
NHAC offers free verbal market-price appraisals. Our consignment fees are reasonable and competitive. The basic structure is 40% commission to NHAC for items selling under $2,000; 35% commission for items selling from $2000 - $10,000; and 30% commission for items selling over $10,000. Optional fee-based services may include restoration, framing, pick-up and delivery, insurance, print and online advertising.

Downsizing & Simplifying
According to statistics, baby boomers – the largest generation in history – will be turning 65 at the rate of 8,000 a day over the next 17-year period. New Hampshire Antique Co-op can be of service to those who are thinking about the next chapter, including downsizing homes in preparation for retirement.
In addition, many of the younger generation are inheriting second homes, or the responsibility for them, and are simply overwhelmed at the thought of consolidating homes or liquidating unwanted items. NHAC's goal is to help our clients realize as much value as possible from the sale of their possessions, including period antiques, fine art and loved-but-no-longer-needed family heirlooms.
