I Sent Away For An Appraisal
A couple years ago while I was in Great Falls, MT I visited a little community sale at a nursing home(?) and I bought a couple of antiques from there.
I bought a salt and pepper shaker set (unopened, cats holding fish) for 25 cents, an "old time desk" jewelry box for $4, and I believe I bought a picture. I also got a couple of antique items from my Grandma (who I was visiting because she was ill). I got antique metal cow and chicken pull toys, and a fat cow figurine (I don't know if it's old or not).
I thought it would be interesting to see if any of these items are actually worth anything. I started with the salt and pepper shakers. I couldn't find anything about them online, but I did find a website where I can submit photos and they may email me back if I have something good.
Wouldn't that be awesome if I bought sometime for 25 cents and then was told it's worth hundreds, or better yet thousands, of dollars!? *Fingers crossed for that!* Lol
I'll also send away requesting an appraisal of the other items. I'll definitely keep you guys up to date with what I find out!
