I was cleaning out my shed and found some items: a two man saw, a pick axe, an old time movie projector with screen, I don't want them or need them; but am hesitant to throw them out because everyone says they are antiques. How do I find out how much they are worth and cash in on them?

Joy ~ do you have any 2nd hand or antique stores in your area? You might enquire there as to the value and may be able to sell or consign them. Just a thought.

Remember a store can give you their price which would be a sale price or a purchase price. Be sure to ask which one they are giving you.
You may be able to put them on Craig's List in your town under Antiques.

I always check prices on ebay. Nothing really is more than what people are willing to pay for it. ebay gives you an average idea.
