It looks like you have 4 dates available in May and then nothing for the rest of 2021 and even into 2022. Is this accurate or have you just not set dates for those months?

Can an eBay buyer see sold data on eBay ? Or do I have to be an eBay seller ?

I have 2 oils & 6 prints by a French artist b. 1910. All signed. But I’ve hit a dead-end finding out more about him. Recommendations?

Thrift store advertised pear necklace on Facebook and 20% off on Wednesdays. When I visited store, clerk said discount did not apply to jewelery. Any recommendation??

I do local pick up auctions and I think they do 💯 better than in person

Hello Dr Lori!

At the restaurant watching

Hello. I have a collector plate that the certificate said only 150 firings but the plate number was in the 2000 a. What does that mean?

It’s 01:45am in South Africa... set my alarm, Big fan. Thank you for excellent information. 🇿🇦

Sorry kalk

I’m working gemstone 💎 form Afghanistan

Best resource(s) to research a French artist b. 1910? What do you professionals use for valid information?

Love watching you

Yea its so great to be here with every one

Yep you must have the loop!

Kalk pottery. How do you properly identify it?

Dr. Lori how do you properly identify Kali pottery?

Hi Dr Lori

As my grand kid would say, you are the bomb!!

Always get a phone number and meet in a public place...police station.

Thank you for your excellent advice!!

Best resource(s) to research a French artist b. 1910. I’m having a hard time & I’m a retired librarian!

i dont know where to sell my antiques

Are you going to do in person shows soon??? Like in the days pre Covid?

Hi Dr. Lori...I have a chance to by an Eanger Irving Couse for a great price, but not a Native American theme...still valuable?

When will you be near Tupelo Mississippi?
