Antiques Dealer: How do I exchange my items?

Select unwanted items from your inventory and offer them to the Antiques Dealer in exchange for Trade Coins that you can use within his shop. More valuable items will also provide you with a chance to earn rare and coveted Gemstones. You can increase the output of your exchange by taking more time to barter with the dealer, or accept a lower output to quickly earn your Trade Coins and Gemstones! Choose from 2, 8 or 24 hours to breakdown your items. You can also boost your output from the breakdown with Diamonds!

Trade Coins are a currency you can earn from breaking down items in the Antiques Dealer. These coins can then be used to make purchases from his shop, or even bid in one of his exclusive auctions! Trade Coins can be purchased for Diamonds.
Gemstones are a currency you can earn from breaking down more valuable and rare items in the Antiques Dealer. Gemstones can then be used to make purchases within his shop. Gemstones can not be used in the Auctions, and also can not be purchased for Diamonds.

To start a breakdown, click on the Antiques Dealer's tent, and then click on the hand icon on the right side of the screen.
Click on the plus sign at the top, to choose which item you want to breakdown. More slots can be unlocked by performing breakdowns, meaning the more you use the feature, the more efficient your breakdowns can be!

Once you've selected which item you want to breakdown, select the Breakdown Timer you want to use, and then click Barter. The estimated value of the breakdown in Trade Coins and Gemstones can be seen on the right side of the window before you start the Barter Process. Once you start breakdown process, your items will be removed from your inventory. If you change you mind, you can click cancel up to the point the timer runs out! Doing so will return the items to your inventory, so don't worry, you wont lose anything (except time) if you change your mind. If you want to speed up the process, you can instantly complete the breakdown with the help of Diamonds!

When a breakdown timer is running, a timer will appear over the Antiques Dealer in your City, which helps you keep an eye on it's progress! Once the breakdown process is done, click on the collect button to receive your Trade Coins and Gemstones!

Lastly, you will notice in your inventory, for any items available to be exchanged the delete button will be replaced with a button which directly takes you to the Antiques Dealer. This should make sure you don't accidentally delete the valuable items you can exchange. Of course, the delete button still exists for items which cant be exchanged via the Antiques Dealer, such as Forge Points packs or Fragments!
