Local Articles in Needham Heights
Seeing pieces similar to your own on PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” feels exciting, especially when an expert gives one a high dollar value.
Businesses thrive on salvaging antiques and architectural treasures
Tempted to give that treasure a "facelift"? Antiques' value may increase or decrease, so plan wisely!
Keep checking around at the auction houses and antique dealers. There are a few in your area that are highly rated. The bigger auction houses should have qualified appraisers. You might also check with your local art museum or fine art gallery. Just like we recommend for big home repair projects, shop around to get the best price.
I found out the hard way in the military that it depends on the product. Some silver polishes will turn brass and copper black with instant tarnish and etch them, so check the label. Some types can be used for any soft metal, some not. I suspect it depends on the pH of the product, or whether it has aommonia in it. And of course if you do decide to try it, do the center bottom (where it sits on the table) first so you can see if it is causing problems.
Brasso is probably the top name in the industry - they make both liquid and treated cloth polishing products both for specific metals, and general polishing ones.

Antique Store reviews in Needham Heights
At 1:30 I returned and they went to work immediately. While doing the replacement, he noticed that the tailpipe hanger (installed at ) was incorrect and the tailpipe was actually resting against the gas tank, He torched off the old hanger and manufactured a new one on the spot, (no additional charge)
So within a half an hour of pulling it on the lift.. I was ready to go.. At the quoted price. Fast, friendly, efficient.
At the end of the sale, handed us a box of things she found while she was getting the sale ready that she thought would be near and to our hearts. If she found a loose penny, then it was in that box. We were given photos, old drivers licenses, real jewelry that had been away. Any thing that she felt would be sentimental like that she made sure it was safely returned to us.
I would recommend this company based on honesty and integrity. It is very hard to find someone that you trust with your valuables. This is an A+ company and I would HIGHLY recommend at least talking to them before you sign a contract with anyone else.
I have some rolls of state quarters and wanted to determine what their likely value is. I've read greatly varying info on this on the internet with some claims that most are worth about $.40 ea and others that claim they are and will continue to be worth roughly ...MoreRead more of this review face value for the foreseeable future.
The gentleman that I spoke with was very "down to earth" and answered my questions at a level that a non-coin-collector could appreciate.
In the end, we concluded that though it's possible that I may have one or two quarters that exceed face value, that the likelihood is not great. He mentioned, in particular, a couple of state quarters where for one reason or another that the likelihood may be slightly greater.
Two thumbs up for any business that doesn't waste your time trying to make a dollar. If ever I decide to get a formal appraisal I will definitely choose them.
I WISH I COULD GET A TRUE ACCOUNTING OF WHAT WAS SOLD AND FOR HOW MUCH THAT DAY.....
Many people couldn't find the house or even the street and confessed that she didn't want to place the GOOD SIGNS where they were supposed to go because she was afraid ...MoreRead more of this review they would be ROBBED! She thought it best to let people get lost instead of have them find the house. ( I have no idea, where she thought she was I live in a good neighborhood...actually so safe, I moved around the corner.... geez WHOLE PROCESS SHOULD BE MADE MORE FORMAL, WHEN YOU ENTER, YOU SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO SIGN IN, YOUR WALKING THROUGH SOMEONE'S HOME! TAKE YOUR ITEMS TO THE FRONT, GET CHECKED OUT - GET A RECEIPT AND LEAVE.
THIS IS NOT A BACKYARD TAG SALE, NOR DOES AND .
SOMEONE ACTUALLY TURNED OFF MY HEAT, SO WHEN STRANGERS ARE IN YOUR HOUSE, BEWARE!
Having and work on a FLAT FEE vs. a percentage is also a BAD IDEA, because they have NO INCENTIVE TO SELL ITEMS FOR A HIGHER PRICE....... I WATCHED SELL A $350.00 CRYSTAL BOWL (which) wasn't for sale for $20....She didn't give a d*** that I told her it wasn't for sale to begin with and continued to sell another Crystal Ice Bucket for probably another $20. I can bet that between the two of them they sold some of the most expensive items like the Sharp Aquos 44" TV AND a similar TV plus the Snap On Tools, for pennies on the Dollar, even after I gave a price list for the tools.... I should have come away with more money than I did.
I also had to pay another $1150 for the day.
I listened to tell me how I should feel sorry for the spanish couple who live in just starting out, building a store, they bought many kitchen items and wanted me to reduce the prices on tools in the garage because the mechanics in can't afford to pay much on the $25-30/hr salary they make!. Imagine that, no being able to afford the very things that you use to make that handsome salary, geez... guess I would make a deal with the Snap On guy like everyone else does, or pay for a good deal. I said to , and the couple this is my lifes work ..... we all have a c to bare! The tools are not priced high, they can't be discounted anymore. They all got mad because I didn't fall for the sob story.
AT THAT MOMENT, I WONDERED, WHO IS WORKING FOR TODAY - THEM OR ME---- BET HE GETS A KICKBACK FOR ALL THOSE GOOD DEALS HE FINDS FOR THEM AND THEIR STORE!! ...IF THEY ALL don't OWN IT TOGETHER.....
