    Don’t Host a Yard Sale!

    Read More »

    Do you want to get top dollar for your objects? It will never happen at a yard sale. Dr. Lori highlights the reasons why selling at a yard sale is just plain stupid in her upcoming Don’t Host a Yard Sale (TM) book.

    Here are some topics she’ll cover ….

    Don’t allow early birds

    When you host a yard sale, you will hear an early morning knock at your door from a professional antiques reseller who wants first pick at what you think is junk. Then, already tired from moving boxes onto the lawn late the night before, you will fight with this dealer to pay you a quarter for that ugly 1950s hula girl lamp.  He knows that he’ll turn around and sell that ugly hula girl lamp for $450 (yes, that’s what people really pay!). Do you think that is fair? You might as well save yourself the time and aggravation of hosting a yard sale and just put all of the clutter from your attic right out onto the curb. Read this book so you don’t host a yard sale and unknowingly sell a $450 lamp for a quarter.

    Don’t believe your trash is somebody’s treasure

    How does Dr. Lori know? From Dr. Lori’s evaluations of over 20,000 objects a year, her hundreds of antique appraisal events around the world, and her actual yard sale visits to help hosts avoid a major loss, she sees the mistakes yard sale hosts make all the time. Dr. Lori sees the money that antiques resellers have made from what you unknowingly think is just ugly trash. Dr. Lori advises that you don’t buy into that phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Your “trash” can be your “treasure” and it can bring YOU big money instead of someone else!

    Don’t think this book won’t cause controversy

    Dr. Lori’s gets Hate Mail from many antique resellers who profit from yard sale hosts’ mistakes and ignorance, but despite the controversy, Dr. Lori will continue to reveal the truth about what’s happening at American yard sales. She is not going to tell you the same old typical stuff that other so-called “experts” might tell you because many of them want to find bargains at your yard sales for themselves at your expense. Dr. Lori wants to you to use her expertise to help you!

    Read this book to learn how to avoid mistakes when selling your antiques, collectibles, and those items that you incorrectly identify as ugly junk.

    Don’t read the horror stories if you have a weak stomach

    Don’t listen to that “know it all” brother in law or spouse in your life who hasn’t read Dr. Lori’s book, hasn’t attended one of Dr. Lori’s events, or hasn’t seen Dr. Lori on TV showing you the real deal as to why you shouldn’t host a yard sale. Buy Dr. Lori’s book and show them one of the real life horror stories that is outlined including the yard sale shoppers who case your home in preparation for a future burglary, or those “shoppers” who are just there to distract you so they can actually steal valuables from your front lawn. By highlighting the yard sale mistakes of other yard sale hosts across the country who Dr. Lori has met personally, you will learn how to avoid selling your unwanted junk for very little money. This is the one book that you can’t afford not to read.

Due to the popularity of these TV appearances, Dr. Lori decided to write a book including her recipes and her understanding of food and cooking trivia.

    Dr. Lori uses her Ph.D. in art history and her humorous approach to highlight what we cook, food history, and why we eat the way we do. In her forthcoming book titled Cooking with Antiques, you’ll learn to sample new dishes and chuckle as Dr. Lori also discusses kitchen design trends and highlights the valuable cooking collectibles that may be hiding in your pantry.

    An American Sculptor: Seymour Lipton

    Read More »

    You may purchase Dr. Lori’s book, An American Sculptor:  Seymour Lipton directly from Amazon.com.

    Buy from Amazon.com

    Dr. Lori’s first major book was sparked by an inquiry asked by her father, a World War II veteran. He asked his art historian daughter about the impact of the art made in America during his lifetime–Abstract Expressionism of the 1940s and 1950s. Abstract Expressionism was the major modern art movement in the United States after the Second World War. This style of art catapulted American artists to the forefront of the global art world. New York City became the center of the art world and the artists working in New York during the late 1940 thru the 1950s remain some of the most important artists–such as Jackson Pollock, Willem DeKooning, Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, and others– in the history of art.

    While the Abstract Expressionist painters basked in the art world’s spotlight, the Abstract Expressionist sculptors received only modest acclaim from critics and the general public. Based on her dissertation to meet the requirements for her Ph.D. from Penn State University, Dr. Lori’s groundbreaking book, An American Sculptor: Seymour Lipton, revealed New York born sculptor Seymour Lipton (1903-86) as more than just an innovator in the art studio but also one of the movement’s inspired thinkers. Lipton was one of the movement’s most influential and prolific sculptors and his creation of the rust-proof alloy called Monel metal was vital to the history of constructed metal sculpture however his works, from an intellectual point of view, derived from the broader context of American society during and after World War II. Dr. Lori’s book did not simply provide an investigation into Lipton’s studio practices but also made a scholarly investigation into Lipton’s impact on the history of Abstract Expressionist art and the history of modern constructed metal sculpture.
