To protect the health and safety of the public and our employees, DCP has limited on-site staffing at 450 Columbus Blvd. While mail and phone calls will be processed as quickly as possible, we recommend using our online services, or sending an email to the appropriate division/person instead. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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.
