So, you’ve decided to clean up the attic or garage. Maybe you are cleaning up your parent’s home. Whatever the situation, you will likely find something that will be of interest to antique dealers or used furniture stores. You should pay particular attention to old furniture, such as desks, chairs and tables. Even if you don’t think the furniture is worth anything, you should see what an antique appraiser tells you.

Thanks so much for stopping by this site! My name is Janique Thornton, I'm a student and I love fashion. While I'm really close to getting my major, I don't think I'll ever finish being a student. One of the things that inspires me most are celebrities. Not just because they wear high-fashion things, but because I feel like they inspire an entire fashion line of their own due to the way they act and the things they do. Because of their ever-changing ways I've decided to dedicate this site to everything that celebrities do, from entertainment to arts. Thanks for reading!
