Do you know AuctionWally?

If not, you should.

AuctionWally, a 25-year veteran in the auction and appraisal field, has an antiques appraisal blog that is just chock-full of information on antiques values and how to sell them. You can find him at, where you can view 500 stories and appraisals for free.

I found this recent article on especially interesting: Auctionwally’s tips for buying expensive collectibles from eBay and elsewhere

AuctionWally also tips us off to scam examiner in Karin Malchow, who keeps current with the latest scams (from Internet hucksters to door-to-door cons) and alerts readers to them.

Knowledge is power, everyone! Protect yourselves.
