Why choose The Benefit Shop?
By offering two ways to convert estate treasures, TBS turns estate liquidation into a winning, fail-safe combination. We pride ourselves in finding new homes for treasured items by matching buyers with sellers and inviting a worldwide audience to participate in the process.

The Benefit Shop holds weekly auctions of donations and consignments for charity.  Estimated prices are subjective—buyers will make the final determination as to the actual value—so your lots will always start low and always sell at market value.

How does The Benefit Shop Foundation consistently draw a worldwide audience?
TBS auctions are featured and advertised on four platforms including: LiveAuctioneers, Invaluable, Estate Sales, AuctionZip, and eBay as well as social media such as:  Google+, Facebook, GoDaddy, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YES, and local papers including The Arts & Antiques Weekly.

I don't live in New York. Do I have to pay the sales tax?
