Customer Question
Hi Nora. I have a...
Hi Nora. I have a few things I would like appraised. I would like to know the value of a first edition book, plus 11 more first editions of Readers Digest "Best Loved Books". First one is Treasure Island, David Copperfield, The Call of the Wild, and Madame Curie. I also have an antique punch bowl set and an old Singer sewing machine. I'm looking to get rid of all of these but it would be nice to know the value's of them first. Can you help?
