In my ignorance I though that, since "analog" and not "digital", consoles could keep their value more like some analog outboard gear. Again, I have never owned a serious analog mixer.

So, any good recommendations over used consoles in terms of age/model/make and/or some commercial intermediaries with good reputation?
A lot of those great sounding mixers from the 90s need a lot of tech work, and even then... little things WILL go on you. Sometimes you get lucky, but you might not. I've experienced firsthand (and continue to) how much $$$ it takes to keep them going.

My advice is buy used, but buy something semi current. A used Audient is a great board. So is a used XL Desk.
