This past week, I decided to take the plunge and get an appraisal online at www.valuemystuff.com
I have to say….I am really impressed.
For a mere $9.99, I was asked to send pictures and a description of my item to the site. They would then give it to one of their experts in that field and send a report back within 48 hours.
And that is exactly what happened.
I received not only an estimated value, but got some history on my item that I could not find ANYWHERE! And I had spent a few months trying to find some information on my piece.
The founder of the site, Patrick van der Vorst, worked for London’s Sotheby’s for 12 years and his expert staff also have worked for major auction houses such as Sotheby’s, Christie’s, as well as others.
So, if you have a piece that you think could be of value, and you don’t want to wait until “Antiques Roadshow” comes to town….give this site a try. I definitely think it’s worth the price!
