Online Antique Appraisals - What's your item worth!

People are always asking us what something is worth.  Sometimes we are able to give them a quick answer.  Often, we have to research an item.  Here are a few websites to help you identify what something is worth.  I really like point #3 in that first link - an item is only worth what somebody is willing to pay for it!   If you have a favorite research site you'd like to share please email it to me at Tnorthmemoryintime@gmail.com
