How to sell a large collection.

Question:
My wife was an avid and aggressive collector ( # 799 ) of all things Red Wing. She passed 18 months ago. I am now in the process of inventorying somewhere close to 400 pieces of Red Wing Dinnerware, crocks, jugs, art ware, commemeratives and collectibles. I’m looking for advice about how to approach the sale of a very large collection. According to the "identify & price" books I’ve purchased, I have some very rare and expensive items in this collection.
Thanks Ted

Answer:
We feel your best bet for selling such a large collection would be have a well advertised auction. As long as your auction is well advertised, Red Wing collectors will find it. We have seen collectors come from all over the US for special pieces. Good Luck SteveNRose
