Want to earn some fast cash? Bring your art, antiques, and collectibles and Dr. Lori, the renowned antique appraiser will tell you whether your possession is treasure or trash. Her free appraisal can be done from photographs or “face to face.”
Dr. Lori is a nationally known art and antiques appraiser, syndicated columnist, and award winning TV personality. But she’s not your typical antiques appraiser. She’s been seen on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Fine Living Network and is an award-winning TV personality and TV talk show host seen on NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX. Dr. Lori is a regular expert guest on the nationally syndicated Daytime program and holds the Ph.D. in art history. So when Dr. Lori talks trash, people listen.
Crowds have been known to stay for hours (a recent event lasted 7 hours) to listen to her honest, educated, and straightforward approach as Dr. Lori tells you the truth about your family heirlooms and yard sale finds. She’ll explain why your china closet is causing big problems for you, what wall to hang your paintings on, and what your antiques and other family possessions are really worth.
“Where do you think auctions and antique shops get all their valuable stuff to sell?” Dr. Lori asks. “The experts may not want you to know, but these valuables come right from yours or grandma’s trash.”
After appraising more than 20,000 objects a year at events and in people’s homes, Dr. Lori says with conviction, “You have the stuff in your house!” (My cousin insists she has a million dollar garage. She says if she sold everything in there for just $1.00, she’d be a millionaire! Imagine if Dr. Lori went through some of her things: She might be a billionaire!)
Dr. Lori tells it like it is and she reveals secrets you won’t hear from any other antiques appraiser, such as, “You’ll have fun even if your treasure is trash! You’ll laugh out loud while learning about your antique, your friends, family, neighbors, and even your spouse at my event! I’m not an antique dealer, reseller, or affiliated with any auction house and my appraisals are accurate and honest. Everyone is invited to attend, with or without an antique, and I’ll even tell you how appraisers on the Antiques Roadshow fail to meet professional museum standards.”
Dr. Lori’s columns about antiques, travel, and home and garden design are read across the country including locally in the St. Louis Suburban Journals and in more than 80 publications reaching more than 7.5 million readers monthly. Dr. Lori is also an editor of several lifestyle magazines and an author with 30 books to her credit. A certified fine art and antiques appraiser, Dr. Lori is the director of www.DrLoriV.com.
So bring a mystery object to the Builders Home & Remodeling Show and find out what it is worth – if you’ve got lunch money or kitchen remodeling dollars tied up in a forgotten item, and Dr. Lori’s popular “What’s It Worth?” antique appraisal event will assess its value. Turn your trash 2 treasure. She presents on Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., 2:30-4:30 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. and then on Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and 2:30-4:30 p.m. One appraisal per person on a first-come, first-served basis.
