Customer Question
I am 76 & I...
I am 76 & I have my dad's rocking chair from when he was a little boy - it is in good shape, but does need to have wicker seat replaced.
I also have my first doll from early 40s - a 19 inch Effanbee Patsy doll also in good shape.
Can you give me an idea of their worth?

I did not receive estimate on chair - not sure estimate on doll is accurate after researching - would like to discontinue service & have my card credited for $34.
Thank you.
