Watch Dr. Lori recount a true story at one of her antiques appraisal events about a valuable old bottle that resold for $60,000 after somebody bought it for only $1,200 on a well-known auction website. Listen how this affects you and the money you are losing when you are researching and using online auction sites as a price guide to value your antiques. Big mistake. If you know your stuff about old bottles, you could have been the one who bought the bottle at a good price from the seller who didn’t know. You can still find valuables shopping at online auctions. Read other stories about using online auctions as price guides.
