My very first sale on eBay was a duck decoy that my mom paid $10 for, and later gave to me. I got $521 for it!

Great video!

I have a statue similar to the one there on your right/my left. She's very tall and slender with one long arm extended. She's quite beautiful. I found her in a case at the Salvation Army a few years ago. WHo is she?

I love your bowl.😍

Thank you, Dr. Lori!

I listened and you've covered so many of the questions I have asked & more.

Thanks for taking time to answer questions!

Got a question?! Ask

I loved this video! Thanks for all you do, Doc. Ok so here goes. How can we find the best places to market our pieces?

It was very good & helpful!

I love the question and answer videos!

😊 I came across you on Gallery 63. Love the show and you. You shoot straight from the hip and I like that. I've always been interested in antiques and I have some that my mother gave me that I treasure and will always keep I have learned a lot by watching you on Gallery 63 and came across your website and I'm so excited to learn more.

Thank you for the fast response to my appraisal request today my 1888 books.

So much fun chatting with folks in their homes via video calls.

I’m so excited! I booked 2 Saturday sessions, one for tomorrow and one again next weekend! 🤩 I haven’t been able to make it to an event so this is so cool!

Talked to IL, FL, NC, TX, TN, NJ, NY, WA, RI, MA...

Dang, of course I am out of pocket Saturday.

KT Hiestand we still have all of the Star Wars cards. Let’s listen and see!

Native American turquoise—too cool or too much? ... See MoreSee Less

Native American turquoise—too cool or too much?

Comment on Facebook

I like Native American jewelry. As for this pair of earrings, how big are they. Like you, I am an 80s girl. I draw the line at only wanting my 80s body and hair back.

Never

Turquoise is so rich and inviting to me. I may be partial to it, due to it being my Birthstone.

Nice I would wear it. Dr. Lori love your show on PTL

I'd have to pass.

Way too much

They are very nice

I love a nice piece of chunky turquoise as long as the rest of the outfit stays understated. They are beautiful. I saw a couple once at a funeral, yes, funeral with southwestern right down to the boots. Outfits were complete with studded jackets. That's when I realized that too much of a good thing is too much.

Depends on the occasion and the outfit

They look very heavy

Too much!

Very nice.

I love turquoise... turquoise or pearls for me! Never too much for either

Nice not to much

Lovely

Very cool

Too cool - reminds me of my grandmother. She always had a few turquoise and silver bangle bracelets on her wrists & they made a beautiful tinkle whenever she moved...

Love it

Beautiful

Very nice! I’d prefer them without the three do-dads on the bottom, but still nice.

Very cool! I love everything turquoise. 🐬

Cool

Cool

Never too cool or too much! 🙈 Hi from Norway ❤️

Way too cool..the color is amazing!

I have2 of these same Ladles. Mine are off white and grey/blue. Old as dirt!

And it would depend on what you are cooking !🤣🤣👍

RIP poor ;adle!

So is dusting. I was dusting the other day and knocked the flatscreen TV off and shattered it. 😥

Oh dear God, not this too😂2020! Hang in here Dr Lori. One of us will replace it for you😃

I have one like that, but unbroken.

Ugh!

OR! Maybe somewhat got swat on the butt!!

wow that was some serious kitchen-ing.

dumpster or no dumpster? LOL 🤔🧐

Yikes! That color though - takes me back. Go avacado!

Growing up Italian...cooking spoons were always dangerous! Lol

Keep vintage out of the dishwasher!!!

Darn I hate that. Same happened to me not too long ago which reminds me I was suppose to look on eBay for my replacement 😆

Unfortunate spoon mishap!

Maybe you shouldn’t scoop so hard ... 🤣😳😉

Haha.. yep!

Judging from the stain in the bowl of that spoon, it must have been a favorite. Sorry for your loss...

Lost a spatula this week! Must utensil 🍴 tragedy week! 😢

You need a new spoon😉

Wooden spoons Dr.Lori

I would make a great weapon for our military....I could be the cook. My own siblings only allow me to bring salad to functions. Ok. I can bring bread. I bake a mean loaf. Lol

Always happens with my favorite kitchen tools.

😅

Oh my goodness! This would NEVER happen to me, lolol.

I hav3 this set. And it was mine💕

I have this set in a case, it was my mother’s.

First Love pattern was very popular. Have never seen these two pieces. No dumpster.

They are keepers. No dumpster

Awww

My Mother gave me my baby spoon. Priceless.❤

We will visit again..... eventually!

from Montreal

So beautiful 😍 I love this place so much sweetie

bellissima

Wow!

Do you know what my sweet fan sent me? Any guesses?

Italians are the best. Just saying

I didn’t make it to Rome but I did make it to Sorrento for work. I took a few extra days for sightseeing. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

I am so lucky, I attended a year of school in Rome when I was Eighteen. I’ve also been able to go back for visits with my husband and children.

WAs in Rome at end of Jan 2020 visiting family.

A hug

Have to admit, I watched the video to decide but I was thinking NO DUMP to the map and DUMP to the vase. Had no idea what the duck ring was. Thanks for the info!

Never a dumpster

No Dumpster... all keepers

Not the vase

No dumpster

1. Map, no date? 2. Rattle 3 mccoy. Wouldn't go into my dumpster.

I have my grandfathers rattle.

Ooh, I want the beautiful blue vase!

I would keep all

No
