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.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
