Customer Question

I have many pieces of mostly religious ( most Jewish / Catholic ?) candle holders?
A few paintings ( one appraised for $2000 at antiques Roadshow 20 years ago.
I have been offered fairly large sums of money when I put on Craigslist. I then choose to not sell them in hopes of finding someone to appraise them.
I am a single mom of 4 sons all of whom I was blessed to be able to adopt :)! I just had my first grandchild and I want so desperately to leave my sons something when I go !
Due to my health issues that occurred 10 years ago out lives have been very minimal in monies yet not love :)
I hope to be able to just find a family home with a little land so that I can live another dream of rescuing animals and then leaving the dream to my sons who also love animals:)!
Thank you for any direction u can send me in,
