Tom Bassett, a member of the New England Appraisers Association, is from Lincoln Neb., and has 30 years experience as an antique and coin appraiser. An expert in knowing the current supply and demand of antiques, Tom conducts appraisals for banks and law firms in addition to teaching classes on "Bargain Hunting for Antiques."
This program is an opportunity to learn about antiques, collectibles, buying/selling, using E-Bay, and more. Tom will tell you "what's hot" and "what's not!"
Attendees may bring one or two items (if too large, bring a photo) and have Bassett give an honest professional appraisal. Guests will enjoy his fresh, motivational, meaningful and humorous style, as well as his terrific business sense!
