What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, December 17, 2018:

During the holiday season, many of us reminisce about our past. Often, a favorite gift we received will be part of those memories. For a lot of us, that favorite gift was a toy. That same toy may be in the attic as a keepsake. Even if you didn’t want to sell it, you probably have wondered how much money it is worth or its value today.

That’s where Monday’s Smart Talk comes in.

David Cordier of Cordier Auctions and Appraisals is in the studio to discuss antiques, collectibles and how much value they may have. 

And it’s not just toys Mr. Cordier will be evaluating.  It can be anything — furniture, firearms, heirlooms — you name it.

What makes this show fascinating is not just hearing about the estimated price of a piece, but about its history and where it came from, how it was acquired or how long it has been in the family.

Do you have an item you’d like to have appraised from a long distance?  Send a brief (under 25 words) description or maybe a photograph to smarttalk@witf.org.
