I can't get any e-mails to you. It keeps sending me a failure notice. I cut the number of photos from six to three and it still won't go through. I am sending it to***@******.***. Do you know if there may be a problem on your end?
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

I will email on my end and see what I can find out. I wondered what was happening as I have been watching for these. I have no idea what could be wrong as I have had photos by email the last two days on other questions. I will check and email the company and see if there is a glitch also if you email***@******.*** and let them know you aren't being able to send the photos through their email. See if they have any suggestions. I am the same as you are when it comes to the company as I am just a contractor certified to do appraisals. I will email them right now. Thank you for letting me know I look forward to seeing these and helping you.

Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

I just received an email saying they received my email and linked me to a page of questions and answers here is a link on photos.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will try it this way. I have sent a total of ten e-mails today. I don't think any of them made it through.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Did you receive any of my pictures?
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hello thank you I have received these photos and will now go through them thank you so much.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I keep getting an e-mail to rate you. Am I supposed to wait until we're finished to do the rating? I still have quite a few items to take photos of and send to you. I am attaching the pictures of Teddy Ruxpin right now. I have Teddy and Grubby, six outfits and the airship with all parts and people. There is only one tape and Teddy and Grubby sing. Grubby's mouth doesn't move but Teddy's does. There is also fifteen story books.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you let me know the value of Teddy and items asap. There is a toy story here in Tucson that is interested in him.
Than you.
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hello thank you I will do Teddy and Grubby now and finish on the first sets tomorrow. Thank you for your patience and yes the rating is after I have completed my work for you. I do not have access to the emails you receive those come from the company. I am a contractor that just works doing the appraisals. I am sorry you are getting the emails as I have not asked to be rated yet nor completed my work for you to be rated. I appreciate your patience and letting me know.

Teddy Ruxpin- 1985 - works and mouth moves- looks to be in good condition. value 100.00

Grubby - Teddys friend 1985- works however mouth does not move-- fair condition value $30.00

6 outfits- value 90.00 clean and look to be in good condition out of box

1 cassette tape - value 10.00

15 story books- appear to be in good condition , if no writing or torn pages these would be considered in good condition - value 120.00

1 tape - 12.00

airship with all parts and people - 350.00 looks to be in excellent condition

total collection 712.00 to sell to a dealer or store they would want to buy to make a profit so you can ask for the collection as a whole 550-600.00 as a whole collection. They will counter the offer and you can deal from there. These appear to be out of box on all items however they are in good to excellent condition. It is best not to sell piece by piece but sell as a whole collection as you have everything here. The airship was sold for store displays and would hard to replace. It is a nice collection. I am still going through the first set of photos and will get those done by tomorrow if not tonight. thank you for your patience I appreciate you allowing me the time to get these done for you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you so much for your quick response. I am going to the toy store tomorrow to see what they offer for the collection. I still have numerous items to photograph. I will be able to work on them tomorrow evening. I'll talk to you soon.
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

You are very welcome I am working on the first set of photos so I should be caught up by then Thank you I am glad to help.

1. A Seiko Charming bell clock, it is in perfect condition, it plays six different tunes on the hour and the little figures move and spin.
2. A collection of wild life animals ranging in height from 4" to 7". Three have the same markings on the bottom, but the Cardinal is different. They are all in perfect condition except I chipped the Cardinal's tail very small. I covered it with some paint and you can hardly see it. I also have the display case.More coming.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
3.This teapot was given to my brother by our aunt, she was 80yrs. at the time. She said it had been her mothers. So it is very old. There are no markings on it. It is in perfect condition, no chips or cracks. The gold ring around the lid is faded, other than that perfect.

It is beautiful.Hand made children's clothes - Given to my brother by a lady that passed when she was 101yrs. that was six years ago. The clothes were her baby clothes. Other items were with the clothes such as old lace, hand crocheted doilies, table scarfs, monogrammed napkins. I only sent a few pictures of other items if you need more I will send them.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Also in her belongs there was a flag feels like it is made out of silk. It is not a flag you could hang outside the material is to fragile. It has 48 stars on it. Also two story books The Angora Twins - 1915 - Stecher Lith Co. - Rochester, NY and Raggedy Ann Stories - Written and illustrated by Johnny Gruelle - PF Volland Co - 1918. and a dresser mirror. I can not determine what the metal is. It is monogrammed and fairly good codition.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Next are few items my brother has had for years. I don't know if they are worth anything or not. Looks like a little cake candle with matches inside, a box with eight packs of matches from a popular nightclub in Altoona, PA, a box of LaPetite matches with three holders that look like little books and to boxes of matches to go in them.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A couple of Christmas items - from Heritage Mint, LTD - A Caroling We Go, The Gift of Believing and Oh Tannanbaum. These are from 2003 so I doubt they are worth much. A manager set I have no idea how old it is. The figures appear to be some type of plastic. There is some damage. The top of the tree is broken off and the two lambs have missing legs.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Lady Tanya, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong or my items weren't going through. I have one more group to download and I am done thank goodness. All these items came from two different estates, plus some from my Mom and Grandpa, some from my brother. I had no idea there would be this much until I pulled it all out and starting photographing. I hope my pictures and descriptions are ok. I will be sending the next group shortly. Again thank you for your help.
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Yes, with the amount it has taken me time to look them up I hope to post this evening all my values thank you for your patience.
