I want to sell a collectible. How should I proceed ?

All you have to do is to contact a member of our team to let us know about your intentions. You have three ways of doing so : contact us by email, by phone or directly in person.

*Know that we do not buy collectibles through social medias nor through our online chat service.

  • By email : contact us by email at this address : collection@imaginaire.com.
    Your email should contain the following details :
    • A brief description of the item you would like to sell and its condition.
    • At least one picture (or more) of this item.
    • Your contact details so that a member of our team may communicate with you as soon as possible (name and phone number).
  • By phone : give us a call at 418-658-5639
  • In person : Give us a visit at your favorite Imaginaire store. We buy collectibles in all our stores. However, we recommend that you schedule an appointment to make sure that an expert is present and available during your visit.

An expert fit to estimate the value of your collectible will let you know quickly if we are interested in buying it and, if so, at what price. If you were not able to talk directly to him or her, he/she will call you back as soon as possible.

Which payment method is used for the transaction ?

You will be able to trade your item for a certain amount of money or for store credit. The expert in charge of the purchase will give you more details regarding your particular case in due time.
