Snow White!

The Jungle Book

Darby O'Gill and the Little People. I was 5 and the Banshee scared the hell out of me!

I’m dating myself, but it was “ Snow White” when I was very little. Mom told me that I cried at seeing the wicked witchy queen. I just subscribed to Disney+, and am really enjoying those oldies from their vault. Some kids never grow up. 😁

The Sword in the Stone is the first one that comes to mind.

Snow White

Snow White

The Adventurers and The Adventurers Down Under. I still have them

Bambi and I have been told I cried the whole way through it.

It was either Bambi or Bedknobs & Broomsticks.

I have a thing for frogs, so...........🐸🐸🐸🐸

No dumpster on all.

I can’t ever choose dumpster!🤷‍♀️

Hhhmmm! ...For the 3rd time in a row lol I wouldn't dumpster any of them! I have a tendency to want to "save" all the old pretties!!

no dumpster

Dang it! I like all of them this time!

Who would put Kermie in a dumpster?!

Lol, I agree. Keep them all.

Is the green vase Blenko?

I'd keep Kermit and get rid of the rest

I have a little green pitcher like this and also a gold one, both "frosted"

The mirror.

Broach

The platter

Wedge wood piece 🧚‍♀️

Platter

Cameo pin!

The trunk!

Trunk

The trunk

The mirror

Cameo

I am going with the platter as the most valuable reason for this is the bright whiteness ( Dr. Lori says to look for) and the blue is very pretty I would think that people collecting would want that color

The mirror

Oh, my! That platter is amazing.

I'm going with box I need new place for stuff 😂

I'll see the bowl in the plate

Bright white platter..fired at a higher temp..and the glaze..(have I listened to you right dr)

The tool box/trunk

Dr Lori I have some things gor you to appraise. Moving tomorrow so I will book with you very soon!

Oh boy I have over 350 beanies..lots of good ones, didn't think anyone would have interest anymore. Mine are all new in zip lock baggies from over 23 plus yrs ago.. yay happy to see these gals showing some of their collection!

Well I did the email appraisal with you..:-) can't wait to see what you find out for me! Too exciting.. <3

Awesome story!

so cool

I missed this getting announced!! I am going to be scheduling one appointment. Girl I have some things I need you to look at. Do you have longer times? Even if they are more money...it would be ok

Welcome to NC!

This is awesome! I’ve been purging. I have a signed Peter Max print that isn’t my taste...

Welcome to North Carolina!

Well I was raised on Antiques and collecting and have sold things here and there it was only from March that I have been doing this alone. My partner of almost 10 years tried to commit suicide in our home on February 3rd and then moved to a different state. So, I took over our antique booth in Wells Maine and I sell things on Facebook and do yard sales. I don't have very good luck with eBay.

Good morning do you have a web site for the ladies?

Fantastic price, specially coming from an amazing appraiser !

So excited you're still doing the special. I looked on your website & I guess I missed it. You'll be hearing from me soon! Thanks!!

Hi good morning! Did your pricing change for appraisals ? Are you doing three items for $49 now ? Or did I misunderstand?

None are dumpster

No dumpster.

Keep all

No dumpster.....put stuff out for free the world has enough trash.

Peanuts dolls dumpster. Keep the rest.

No dumpster for anything Dr. Lori!!

I agree with the majority here. No dumpster. Personally I’m most interested in the Cuban tobacco pieces story. It’s political and cultural etc.

No dumpster

No dumpster

No dumpster -

No trash to take out today

I see value in each of them!

No dumpster for anything sista!!!

They are all keepers!

Keep it all!

Love Charlie Brown and Lucy! ♥️

Those items all look like things someone, somewhere collects. Find the collectors and sell that stuff!

I love the vintage Charlie Brown & Lucy.

Interesting!!!

Got Pyrex?

Comment on Facebook

I have given a few pieces away to daughter..daughter inlaw..they look at me with that look when I say to them.." these are very collectable so be careful with them.." they think I don't see that look but I do..

My mom passed away a little over a year ago. I was ready to split all my mom's pyrex with my sister. I even laid it out on tables so she could pick out what she wanted. (Mom had hundreds of pieces) Took me a couple hours to set it all out. When my sister showed up to help clean she asked if I was holding a party😂 I told her no and pick out what she wanted. She looked at me like I was crazy! She said she didn't want any of it. I told her quite a bit was rare and valuable. She said congrats now pack it up😳 I couldn't pack it up fast enough lol. I sold 10 pieces because they were doubles. Gave a few away to family and friends and have some set aside for my 1 year old granddaughter. I cannot imagine getting rid of them since most of them have been in my family for generations now. I pray my kids will cherish them as I do.

You should do a whole Pyrex show about values..so many people collect 😉

Pyrex, Tupperware etc...still going strong 65 years later and NOT filling up the landfills with trash!

I still have the set, broke the green one but have the rest. Yes we put our Fri. night pasta in the yellow bowl.

I have this set in my basement. Was supposed to sell it but I’m struggling to let it go 😂

I’ve been using my Pyrex Spring Blossom bowls since I got them for my first apt in the late 1970s. They’re still going strong, along with all the Spice of Life Corning ware 😉

I have these (some in multiples) and two of the small rectangular ones in red and yellow. Love them all.

In my world, yellow bowl meant a HUGE pile of potato salad which meant BBQ party! I have two of that set.......and one is the famous yellow bowl.

We used to have these. I think I still may have some of the set. Yellow to us meant fruit salad.

I have this whole set...but our huge yellow one was the party size potato salad lol

My boyfriend bought me a set for my birthday. They weren't cheap but now I have the same set my Grandma did. 😁

Yep. And lots of it. Have these bowls. Mom and us girls always used the yellow one for making a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies. Pyrex is my favorite for baking too. ❤❤

Right yellow bowl did mean lots of potato salad

Let me do the appraisal here: that Primary mixer set is worth $45-75 depending on the condition (usually the red is the most damaged) and whether it it “unnumbered” or not. Earlier sets did not have the size numbers (401-smallest, 402, 403, 404- largest) printed on the bottom and are worth more.

My mother was Hungarian. So when the yellow bowl came out we know she was making homemade bread.

I have my mom's yellow bowl ...always used to make our birthday cakes. I never saw the other bowls at home but now have completed the set for my kitchen!

I still have my mother's set without the orange bowl. Love it.

I still have my mother's yellow bowl. She did and I still use it for pasta!!

I have that set of my Mother’s. Use them often. Yellow bowl meant potato salad at our house.

Yes! I've gotten rid of most of my plastic items and use old Pyrex. I love using old items!

My granddaughter asked if "someday" she could have mine as we have used them every year for our 25 years of Christmas cookie bake. There are various cookie doughs in each one.

I love the old stuff. I have vintage pyrex sets. Corning ware dishes and recently found some milk white fostoria bowls I love them.

The little blue bowl is all I have left. They were my favorite set.

I have this same set. It belonged to my mom. I use at least one bowl daily.
