About: About


In about 2007, I started buying and selling "old stuff" at auction, estate sales, flea markets, etc. I quickly took a liking to it - learning about the history of objects, learning about their manufacture, what makes certain objects worth more than others, etc. I am especially grateful for the way that objects can hold so much meaning for us as individuals, as families, and even as a society. The best objects serve as pointers to what is true, what is good, and what is beautiful.


I am a member of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA). All of my appraisal work is done in accordance with the USPAP standards as well as being compliant with all ISA standards. In 2022, I became a member of the Association of Online Appraisers. I live and work in Northwest Pennsylvania but am available for assignments nationwide.
