Does anyone have any suggestions on the best place on-line or elsewhere to sell a piece? Ebay? Rubylane? Etsy? I have been collecting for years and have decided to pare down my collection. I am not an expert, just collected what I loved wearing.
Welcome to Turquoise People. We use Ebay and Etsy. How big is your collection? You might try to go direct to a dealer and avoid the headaches and fees. It is always heard to gain traction if you are new and don’t have a number of pieces.
It’s really important to be knowledgeable enough to properly advertise your items. Even legality is at issue: one cannot offer for sale items described as Native made unless they really are. Hopefully your things have some documentation from point of purchase, and/or you can vet the material before offering it for sale. Without certainty, the best you could say is Southwestern or SW style.
Everything that you and the others have mentioned are all viable options. I have also had luck with some of the private groups on Facebook. There are many and they cover Navajo, Pueblo, Zuni, Kewa, Mexican and southwestern. They have different rules and a couple prohibit selling but there are plenty that allow it. Just a thought.
