Hi Christine and all! I'm a long-time WC denizen who formerly used pastels, but eventually gave them up due to dust allergies. Some oldtimers in the forum may remember me. I now plan to sell my collection, but have no idea where to start in pricing.

I have a huge collection of Unison, Townsend, Sennelier, Schminke, etc. and a lot of Rembrandts and a few each of other assorted brands, as well as Nupastels. About a third are in near-new condition. Most have the labels removed, but most of them are catalogued with color swatches for easy reordering. Is there a pricing formula for used pastels? What about pastel papers/surfaces (Wallis Museum, Art Spectrum, Canson, etc.)? Does it make more sense to try to sell the whole shebang in their wood storage case, or to sell the original sets (I still have the boxes)? I'd prefer not to sell individual sticks - will it work for me to bundle groups of, say, 10 pastels?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Annie, Sorry to hear that you are giving up pastels. Try posting this as well, below, in the general question and answer area.

Thanks, Karen. Do you mean I should post a thread in Pastel Talk, or? I don't know my way around here any more!

OK, I figured it out now and did a separate thread in Pastel Talk. Thanks again.
