What Makes Catawiki the Place to Sell Extraordinary Items?

You might think “It will never happen to me!” until one day, rummaging in an old box you discover a first edition book from the 1800s or - perhaps as one fisherman recently made the news with - the world’s largest pearl under your bed! At that point you think “What on earth can I do with this?”

Using the auction

Now that postcards are sold on the Internet more often, the number of enthusiasts has increased.

Anton Stikkelman has visited all markets, fairs and auctions that you could think of with his dad. As a consequence, he was taught to trade from a young age. From the age of twelve he didn't do anything but trading, and from sixteen he was making profits by trading postcards. His network was a great asset. Postcards that Anton Stikkelman bought in Antwerp, were sold in London, where he bought some more cards to be sold in Germany. In addition, he has been active in online trading for years, where he got to know many collectors worldwide. With his lifelong experience, there is barely any postcard that Anton Stikkelman hasn't laid his eyes on. This experience is invaluable when it comes to examining lots for auctions. Quality is his highest priority and he gladly consults his network for high quality objects. By doing so he makes auctions attractive for the young budding collector as well as the avid enthusiast. By keeping the quality high, Anton Stikkelman still hopes to sell more exclusive cards in his auctions, such as those of Bauhaus or the Wiener Werkstätte and rare postcards from Hong Kong or Iran.
