Antique Appraisers

4 posts in this topic

Anyone have any experience with having larger furniture appraised in your home??

The wife and I have 3-4 pieces that we were given for helping someone move, that we'd like to know if they're worth holding onto, or just take them to the local "Goodwill". One of the pieces we know isn't worth anything, but the others...???

One's a chian cabinet from the mid-'30s, and yes, we know it isn't from 1730, but we'd have to give it away if it were worth $400-500.

Anyways, if anyone's got an idea, let me know. Thanks.

LMM, I'd check with the antiques shop in Forest Lake right off hwy 61 just south of the hwy 8 bridge, next to play it again sports. They might be able to help you out. Might not hurt to bring some pics along and get the name or any markings off the pieces in question.

You're right... I drive past that place 20 times / week, especially during mowing season. I'll have to stop in there.

We're trying to remodel a foyer, and it's jam packed with this furniture we were given.

We know it's worth more than our time that it took to help move... but how much more???

my uncle was a antique collector and seller, i worked with

him part time, so i know if it would be junk or good...

if you want to send pics i could give you a ball park

figure. bonehead149@yahoo.com

i also collect antiques, now i am into old pinballs and

arcade games. i got a neat bar that came out of the gangster

hangout in willernie/ mahtomedi hexagon house. circa 1934.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
