Dr. Lori values the silver toned Dogwood earrings at $100. I have had numerous pairs of these and have never seen them sell for more than around 20 or $30. Maybe they’re a little higher now, but I have a serious question. Where on earth can you sell those earrings for $100? I’ve had a bricks and mortar store in an upscale Atlanta neighborhood, and Etsy shop, and I’ve sold on eBay and I’ve never seen a venue get that kind of money for a little earrings like that. I do know that Crown Trifari Jewelry can bring good money, but for me, that has always been for unusual sets, but definitely not odd pairs of earrings, even when they’re signed. I’ve had an antique business since around 1984.

Where is yesterday, November 24th's 5pm EST Dr. Lori video? 🙂

I would need more info. 🤔👀🤭

Well I still have “ Camel Cash” coupons that my daughter was saving. A friend gave to her back in 90’s! & the catalog. What’s that worth?

I have a couple camel lighters.

A guest's pet makes a cameo as I appraise your stuff. Goodwill misses more silver marked pieces, Bluebox scores, a pipe from the early 1800s, #jewelry, more. How do you find the valuables? Watch, I show you how! ... See MoreSee Less
