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

Expert witness testimony
Insurance Coverage

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.

Event Details

Pop Up Shop - Tent Sale in Delaware

Fall Sale 2019

Saturday & Sunday 9 AM - 5 PM

 

November 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 at a yard sale. 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.

Perhaps you need a valuation for art or antiques at home? Maybe a cabinet or a dining table that you found at a sale, picked up at auction, or inherited from your grandfather... or perhaps it's a chest of drawers or chair that you found in a dusty antique shop?

When valuing a piece of art or antique furniture, our experts consider the item's age, style, size and origin. The condition matters too: an item in exceptional condition is typically worth more than an item that may have some conservation issues. No matter the condition, age or type of your piece, our experts will be able to give you an evaluation of your antiques and art.

Our wish is to exceed expectations by providing all of the information needed to make a well

informed decision regarding preservation of art, antiques and collectibles.

 

 

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.

Furniture-Antique & Vintage

Antique and vintage furniture pieces always held a value of their own but now they have found a new design role. Many who bought antique furniture in the past had a vintage home design. Now home designers have started to combine antique and vintage furniture pieces with modern home design and the result is extraordinary.

-SOLD- Antique Bankers Chair with Original Leather Seat Cushion 1885-1894

"The Marble & Shattuck Company, Bedford Ohio name, was used from 1885 to 1894. A fire destroyed the plant and all of its finished stock one year after forming. Mr. Shattuck withdrew his support after this loss and outside interests gained control of the company. Mr. Marble stayed with the company and directed its manufacturing operations until 1895. Mr. Marble left the company, purchased a small plant and continued to manufacture furniture under the name of the B. L. Marble Chair Company. Mr. Shattuck joined him in this endeavor. The B. L. Marble Chair Company gained a national reputation for quality chairs. About 1901, the Marble & Shattuck Company moved to a new facility in Cleveland.

This Luxury Home ranks among the best value properties in Philadelphia;
based on price, location and consumer ranking.
Guest reviews have an extraordinary level of overall satisfaction. 

There is a type of dance that occurs when a well-trained team of people work together. Harmony and melody, meter and verse, they all know where to place each step, which part of the song or dance is theirs to sing, and the great pride that comes when the song is sung, the book closed, and that guest is radiant when they say their farewell. There is nothing better than the satisfaction of a job well done in the hospitality and service industry.

The truth about the hospitality industry is simple; it is all done with ebb and flow. We take notice of the little details before and after each guest check-in. This makes the difference between delighted smiles of satisfaction instead of frustration when guests leave.

We take our time and make an extraordinary effort towards making each guest feel welcome and appreciated. A team of professionals begin each day with attention to detail, an exceptionally clean room of course, as well as a personal touch that tells our guests that we know them, we have anticipated their needs, and we want everyone to have an exceptional visit.
