A question for those living in Tokyo

This is a question for people who live and know Tokyo pretty well. I figured this is somewhat food-related.

I am looking to sell my parents' very gently used Villeroy and Boch silverware and flatware (plates of all different sizes and cups and saucers). I have about eight or ten dinner and salad plates and cups and saucers. I think the silverware comes in a 40-piece set, and some of them are unopened in their original packaging. Everything is in great condition. I also have tea sets and random other porcelain, bone china and silver tableware I'm trying to get rid of.

I'm trying to avoid shipping these because it'll cost me an arm and a leg. I have a car to deliver the items to the buyer if they're in the Tokyo area, but I don't even know how I would go about posting these items for sale. I can post in both Japanese and English, but does anyone know a brick-and-mortar store which specializes in selling these kinds of things, or an online shop where I can post these for sale?

    The last time I paid attention (a couple of years ago) the go-to place was Yahoo! Auctions. But perhaps someone has more up-to-date information....
