Customer Question
I have 70 plus...

I have 70 plus pieces of vintage clear glass dishes from the 1920's-1950's and some china pieces. I would like to sell them all, not consign. Where can i go in Des Moines, Iowa?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I know some were my grandmother's and great grandmother's. I am 63 and have kept and used it occasionally over the years. My aunt recently passed away at 99 and being the only girl on both sides I have inherited her items as well. I need to down size at this time in my life. Who buys out right in Des Moines, Iowa?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Would there be any value or should I donate to the caner store?
