Customer Question
I'm just wondering how...

I'm just wondering how a person should go about getting several items looked at --we have jewelry,furniture, books, a sampler from the 18th century etc Is there a good approach to follow?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

My sampler is from Maryland/Pennsylvania from1799 --stitched by a young member of the early settlers the Troth family. It is in fair condition, colorful on silk or linen.

please take the $5 out of my PayPal account and do not attempt to make any additional charges to my accounts. I do not want to do business with you and I am horrified that you would charge my account without permission or giving any service. Please take it off my account so we do not not need to go further with this issue. K. Johnson.
