Hey Dr. Lori! I am sad you are having to deal with junk (verbal that is)! Focus on the great stuff, there is so much you do! Hugs!

I am sorry people are so rude and full of negativity opinions shame on those that feel this way and disrespect you in this way . I find you to be quite honest and helpful and  full of wonderful  knowledge and information and Funny also !!!  Thank you for being you .

Anytime we work in the public eye. We have to deal with trolls, hypocrites, tro uble makers, haters, who are miserable and dont want to see anyone do well. You are a lot of fun on PTL, and it's obvious you are good at what you do !

Dr. Lori: Please ignore the crazy trouble makers and nay sayers... We who love seeing and hearing from you value all the information and knowledge you impart to your viewers. I truly enjoy hearing what you have to say about "finds" and non-finds! Can't wait to hear your next segment on Pittsburgh Today Live (or on Facebook)! Hoping to submit some items soon! 🙋‍♀️❤️⭐️👏xo

I watched your YouTube rant and think all your rants are valid. Sometimes on posts I just read the comments to see all the 'armchair' professionals or just outright bullies come out of the woodwork. I don't get to watch you as often as I would like, but when I have I'm very impressed by your knowledge.

So sad. You are one of the most honest personI know. You know your stuff and ignore those people that run their mouth.

Dr Lori. Just want to thank you again for all you do for us. I appreciate it and continue to learn. Please keep doing all the great things you do. Don't let these people bring you down. You are loved and appreciated by far more people. ❤️

Jealous people love to tear others down! You do a great job! Keep it up!

Dr. Lori, we love love love love you❤️ haters are always going to hate. It is usually because they are just jealous…! I cannot believe how much I know about valuables because of you. Please don’t ever stop what you doing we all appreciate you. Forget that small portion of disgusting people that are just trying to make your life miserable. Please. You will never Lose your credibility with thousands of people. You have changed our lives forever in a beautiful way❤️. God bless you Dr. Lori. I cannot even find words to tell you how grateful I am for you.❤️❤️❤️ and there are thousands of us that feel that way probably even millions❤️

We love you Dr Lori!


The evil people only attack honest people, you are respected and appreciated by decent people like you. We love you.

Agree with all your gripes.. If someone has a valuable item, get it certified, by you or another appraiser. Anyone can say anything.. Thrift stores?? I once bought an old pair of binoculars at a thrift store for $10.. An old pair of ZIESS binoculars.. No, they did not know what they had...

Out of all the channels and people I've stumbled on on YouTube, in my 37 years, you are my absolute favorite!

Well they are probably leaving someone else alone for a while. So sorry.

I am sorry. Rant away.

We really really appreciate you, Dr. Lori. No one comes close to your knowledge !

You hit the big time - you have critics 😂 I sell vintage furniture for a living (Interesting Things LLC) and love following you. Just remember empty vessels make the most noise 🤷‍♀️💖

People are crazy! Ignore them

Sometimes ya just gotta rant! ... Throw in a little rave too!

Yah let the naysayers be! Ignore them. They ain’t worth your time!

Definitely haven’t lost your credibility! 🤗

I'm so sorry Dr. Lori. A lot of unpleasant people out there. They must be really unhappy and miserable to be so hateful.

Verbal junkage, ignore the trolls, not worth the time or energy!

Don't e en give a 2nd thought to the trolls. YOU know what your talking about. Your credibility is solid. If others know better let them go on their way. Keep doing what you do.

I don’t usually have dreams, I have nightmares! Your was sweet🌸♥️

David got such a kick out of that. That was cute

I did really well today. However no picture of Marvin 😞

Dr. Lori definitely the chocolate to be dreaming about a cat. But did you google it to see what it means, might mean something entirely different.

No #cooking tonight just #treasure hunting!

I would guess book?

Get out! The tie? I have a large bag of ties! Dr Lori you are way to young, we used to see ties together to make skirts!! I loved them, kinda Hippy? & I also have a pattern for ties, as a kid I would make ties & sell them to make money! I did pretty well with that as well. I didn’t get to see your show on “Ties” I am so terrible with dam electronics! Being retired living alone, I have not learned all the good things you can do with electronics. Hopefully I’ll find info googling!

Loved this episode!

I was in some of these classes! Great finds.

I am stumped!!

Love this!❤️

The tie

Go Eagles! Are you watching the playoffs today? You deserve a break for some good football!

Saw the video and I had my husband listen to the tie part; told him to check his ties out😉 I think it is an excellent idea if you did whenever you get a chance on men's vintage apparel video as you mentioned

You asked for it—register now, tell your friends! New class time.

Many of you asked for an afternoon class. Here it is!

I can't wait. My cousin in Fl is registered too!

I can't wait!!!!

Darn I'm busy then 😵‍💫 I would attend if I could!

I'm having trouble registering for the class... could it be that I'm running Linux here, and need to use my tablet instead... It asks for a code...

I am too poor to afford your appraisals, I tried to get you once and got not you. That person was offering several different prices for an appraisal. My suspicion was raised and haven't tried since. I still watch you. Love your show!!

Wow... this is on my birthday, how can I not attend! 🙂 🙂

Sent your name to a specific Goodwill. They have an 18th or ? century European painting that needs your expertise! Hope they contact you. Man is member of the Order of the Garter - he is wearing insignia.

Game time! Niners vs Eagles!!

Yay! I'm registered 🙂 🙂

Signed up! My first class with Dr. Lori excited 😆

I have gotten several blue boxes and it's always out of FL. Is that the only place they come from?

I've never gotten a blue box, and don't know what it is exactly. Our thrift stores don't do these

You appraised a piece of artwork for me at $125. I sold it within a week of listing for $130. You also appraised a piece of Rodolfo Morales art for $2000 and 2 reverse paintings of Japanese art for $350 each. I have yet to list them because I’m really nervous lol. Thank you, Dr. Lori.

Just ordered the loop and diamond tester! So excited 💎🧐

Searched your website for info on DeGrazia. His gallery said that I have an original plate of his. Do you have info on DeGrazia signed plates? I think I may need an appraisal!

My diamond tester was saying diamonds on my old sapphire bracelet. Am I doing something wrong?

I was in a group tonight that knocked you. They were bombarded with positivity about you

Love that face again. Dr Lori !!

You are right on Dr. Lori ❤️

I sold an item that you appraised for $2000.00 on ebay.The guy offered $1000.00 and I said you had appraised it for $2000.00.He bought it.

How much is it for you to appraise stuff
