Antique Dealers

There are no licensing requirements for selling jewelry, china, crystal, or bric-a-brac. The seller of used bedding and/or upholstered furniture is required to have a second-hand dealer's license and sterilization permit from the Bedding Unit of Consumer Protection, but authenticated pieces over 100 years old are exempt from this requirement.

Please contact the Department of Consumer Protection for further information at 860-713-6115.
