We started this business by cleaning out the attic. We started at another auction site and found that as our costs went up, so did our prices on our items. We decided in order to provide lower prices to you, our Customers, we'd come to eCrater! We do take some items on consignement. The items that we have not personally purchased, we do research and inspect to the best of our ability. We try to make sure that all of our products are of good to excellent quality. If we know of any defects or flaws, we will list those. If you have any questions, we welcome you to email us.
