Valuation Services

Estate Sales are a common method used for downsizing, however the focus may be on liquidation of assets.

Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.

Appraisals are done for many purposes

Probate, estate, tax, and equitable distribution
Dissolution of marriage and business transactions
Expert witness testimony
Insurance Coverage
Damage Claims
Guardianship
Bankruptcy
Charitable contributions
General knowledge of values

When we are asked to provide a valuation for an item we are not able to appraise, we let the client know up front and utilize a network of contacts to find an expert.

Free Initial Consultation - A valuation may not always be expensive, however it may have value. I am certainly not interested in coming to your home and reviewing your objects, only to follow up via mail with a document telling you that your objects are worth less than expected.

E-mail, call, or text me and we’ll take it step by step from there, but we will never perform a valuation that we don’t believe serves the best interest of the client.

At BnB Antiques, we have extensive hands-on experience and the ability to embraces technology. We are experienced professionals. We spend hours each day researching auction catalogs and attending live events. We are excited to be an organization completely immersed in the marketplace for material culture.

With a deep understanding of how to use and interpret online pricing databases, we are confident our services provide the expertise necessary to help anyone who may be  concerned that their family heirlooms will not be preserved for future generations.

  • Attention to detail and a humble devotion to integrity.
  • US-PAP compliant valuations that are prepared with expert knowledge and foresight.

Perhaps a valuation can be a simple list of objects with prices, but to our organization it is more important. It is family history. 

  • Dedicated to responsibility and required to show our work. 

In the valuation of each material culture object, we are doing our homework, documenting the process, and making sure the valuation we provide is exceptional.

Our base rate is currently $175 per hour for field work and research, and $15 per hour for clerical work.

 2019, The BnB Antiques Pop up Shop in Milton, Delaware falls under our Valuations Department. The Talley Family has been from Delaware for over 330 years. Any family that has recorded their history for more than 300 years is significant for the purposes of historical conservation and preservation. Perhaps items that have a historical significance can be saved from being discarded or sold. Without a professional valuation, there is a risk that some important items could be lost forever. Estate Sales are another way to accomplish this objective; however they often focus on liquidation of assets for monetary purposes. Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.

My friend in Milton wanted to downsize and so I went over to help out. His family has been from Delaware for more than 330 years so visiting is always an educational experience. We enjoy spending time together as farmers have great stories and they know how to fix everything. 

Downsizing can be difficult at any age. What to keep and what to toss is probably on everyone's agenda at some point. I wanted to come up with a clever way to help out. Instead of the traditional estate sale we got a tent and opened a little pop up shop where he could sell anything from his collection. 

His home is near a local Wildlife Refuge and certainly a beautiful place to visit. We set up our canvas tent in the yard facing the vineyard and decided it was time to go glamping. We have found a lot of fun stuff at the pop up shop to fill up our glamping tent, and sometimes we enjoy a campfire under the stars roasting marshmallows. 

My friend is having a good time and downsizing in the process. It can be hard to let go of things but perhaps a little easier when something is going to a good home. Giving away a toy to a little boy or selling a fishing pole for a dollar to a neighbor going fishing is fun. The best part is meeting people who live in the community as well as visitors. 

We wanted to say thank you to our customers who came by even when the temperature was 100 degrees. We hope you enjoy pictures of our pop up shop and glamping adventure.

About Us

Private Collection In Historic Philadelphia

BnB is for 'bread n butter' plates, our petite passion. Conservation and preservation of material culture s is our mission.

In the beginning I was a collector of stamps. My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of antique objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore furniture. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 330 years. Once you enter the BnB Gallery, it is obvious that we love to buy beautiful objects but may not wish to sell them, especially family heirlooms.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance. I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of antiques in one way or another. I decided to study antiques and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a professional antiques appraiser and today I remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or antiques passed down for many generations. 

Our home has been transformed into an Antiques and Art Gallery with 5 Unique Guest Bedrooms and breakfast served daily. Guests have an opportunity to experience the Historic Philadelphia neighborhood and our comfortable organic style that changes naturally.

I am a collector of antiques and art with a passion for provenance and photography. The Gallery in our home is an alternative space to showcase art & antiques and we invite artists to display their work along with the art and antiques in the collection. The BnB House is the perfect historical home to showcase our entire antique collection. Vintage inspired designs with a modern twist.

The BnB Antiques and Art Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service bed and breakfast as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.

Material Culture

 

The study of material culture centers upon objects, their properties, and the materials that they are made of, and the ways in which these material facets are central to an understanding of culture and social relations. It challenges the historical division between the natural sciences as being the place for the study of the material world and the social sciences as being where society and social relations can be understood.

Instead, culture and society are seen as being created and reproduced by the ways in which people make, design, and interact with objects. It also challenges the assumption, perpetuated by disciplinary divisions and also philosophical trajectories, that the object and subject are separate, wherein the latter is assumed to be immaterial, and the former is assumed to be inert and passive.

In seeing the material properties of things as central to the meanings an object might have, much work within material culture studies is critical of the idea that objects merely symbolize or represent aspects of a pre-existing culture or identity. A key area of contest in the literature on material culture is the question of agency and the ways in which objects can produce particular effects or allow and permit certain behaviors or cultural practices.

This is developed through the concept of objectification, which is central to many studies of material culture—albeit differently conceived dependent upon the disciplinary and theoretical stance taken—which explores the intertwined, and often dialectic, relationships between people and things. Anthropology - Material Culture - Sophie Woodward Read More
