Our clients gain needed funds and regain space for items no longer needed, while King Richard’s handles the removal, restoration, storage and ultimate placement in another religious facility. With more than 1,000 stained glass window removals and restorations completed, we have the greatest buying power in the U.S. with the most respected buyers and crews available. That’s why King Richard’s has the industry’s most solid reputation in the acquisition and placement of religious artifacts.
Contact us today for a free estimate or on-site evaluation. We’ll help you determine the right price for all your religious items, all the while guaranteeing they will find new homes in appropriate environments. Naturally, we pay for all shipping and trucking costs on any and all items we purchase.
We will also be happy to discuss consignment options for your stained glass art. If someone is trying to “sell you” on consigning windows with them, you have to call one of our experts to help you understand the issues involved with this type of deal which are too many to list here including all the sad stories in recent years connected to some of these individuals. We are proud to say we are the trusted company in this field and are ashamed to say our field has become very challenging and outright sleazy in many ways.

King Richard’s cost-effective and extensive client database (social media) maximizes your marketing profile. You also have the peace of mind of knowing the identity of the buyer for your windows so that you can rest assured they are placed in a proper setting and not on the disrespectful world’s largest garage sale (ebay) at the cheapest prices where the parishioners, donors and other faithful are heartbroken and church officials are infuriated by these actions.
Sadly, we have witnessed more than one individual buying windows from naive priests, nuns, church officials and others who were told “Oh no Sister, we won’t put your windows on ebay” when these trusting people made it clear this wasn’t what they wanted to happen. Of course we are later told these stories by these same trusting sellers/consignors as all of the windows are literally instantly listed for sale where these individuals said “they wouldn’t” be. This is unethical, dishonest, and extremely disrespectful to the religious facilities the windows came from not to mention to the families/donors of these items.
