Default Need advice on ivory carvings

I need to raise some capital and am going to sell the ivory my grandfather carved in the 1960s and 1970s in Barrow. I can't post them on eBay, and there has been no luck on craigslist or my personal blog...any suggestions on where to take them or to get a fair price for the work?

Thank you!
respond here or directly...

Beautiful carvings! Why don't you check with some of the Native organizations around Fairbanks, or even UAF? Just during the weekend UAF had a Native Arts fare at the Wood Center and at the Great Hall. Also, make sure that you check with the Museum at UAF, since they may know the right people. The Knotty Shop near Salcha used to have lots of Native ivory carvings, but I have no idea if they are still buying.

In my view, if you advertise it to collectors in Alaska and the lower-48, you could probably bring twice the price you are asking for. Take a look at this shop in Anchorage:
