Does Barnebys buy or sell items?

If you are interested in offering your item(s) at auction, it would be our pleasure to reach out to our auction house affiliates on your behalf to arrange for a sale once your items have been valued. Simply click the “Sell My Object” button on the email with your valuation certificate or reach out to a member of our team.
Does Barnebys hold its own auctions?
No. We're a search service aimed at art, design and collectables interested and we don't hold our own auctions. At Barnebys you will, however, find hundreds of thousands of items from auction houses and dealers all over the world.
