 Selling Your Hibel Art


This website is not in the business of selling art and does not purchase art at this time.  We suggest locating an art gallery, gift store, antique shop or consignment store in your local community where your items could be placed on consignment.  

For people wishing to sell their Edna Hibel Original Paintings on consignment, please contact   (561) 667-1148.   Edna Hibel Corp was THE market maker in Hibel art and is no longer in operation.  

Other Artwork (Including Lithographs)

To determine the current economic value of your Hibel paintings, lithographs, prints, plates, dolls and collectibles:

-Consider the current economic market and the stock market which influences the public’s willingness to spend disposable income. 

-If you wish to sell your piece quickly, do not be greedy.

– Alternative venues for selling your art would be local art galleries, antique shops, consignment shops, classified ads, and Internet auction sites.

We trust that you have enjoyed the Hibel art or gifts in your home over the years which itself equals considerable value.  Please consider this amortized value when you select a price for sale.
