Customer Question
I've retired after 50...

I've retired after 50 years of showing,breeding, and collecting prints & figurines of Cairn Terriers from around the world. I am looking for both a buyer & appraisal of my fine collection. I live 12 miles outside of Hilton Head SC

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I know many of the pieces are of great value & I'm 71 years of age with no one to leave the collection to. I'm ready now to sell......
