Auction Wally Interview

Reading: Worthpoint.com has an interview with Walt Kolenda. Give it a read, and check out Auction Wally's website.

I think his appraisal service is a great resource for somone who, say, inherits a few antiques, and doesn't really know anything about them or the antiques world. Talking to appraisers can be intimidating and expensive. But with Wally's friendly online service, with his reasonable fee, you don't have to invest a lot to get some straight answers. He gives good advice on selling an item quickly, or how to work for a higher price. The archive of his appraisals is an excellent research tool, also.
