The Gold and Silver Mine: Selling collectibles through eBay and auction houses

The Gold and Silver Mine: Selling collectibles through eBay and auction houses The Gold and Silver Mine: Selling collectibles through eBay and auction houses There are times people bring items for me to evaluate that are beyond the level of my knowledge. Over the years we have dealt with collectibles other than those which I consider to be our base – that base being coins, stamps, firearms, precious metals, trains, toys and ceramics, to name a few (I guess that really is more than a few). So when I’m stumped, I offer some suggestions. The first is for the customer to do some research on the Internet, using some key words that describe the item such as a brand name. This works well when checking on a signed painting, for example, since just because it is signed doesn’t mean it was signed by anyone important; hence an Internet search will not yield any information.

Brigantine Garden Club news, week of Dec. 12 Brigantine Garden Club news, week of Dec. 12 I just read that Treasurer Johanne Milnes is paying tribute to her mother by featuring her as this month's artist of the month. Now we know where Johanne gets her artistic talent. I can't wait to go see it. Go out to support a member's work.

Linda sent me an interesting newsletter from Triple Oaks Nursery and Herb Garden. Author Lorraine gave this information: Fragrances go all the way back to the first Christmas when herbs and field grasses were put in the stable in Bethlehem for food and bedding for the animals.
