Antiques Appraisal Comedy Show comes to State Fairgrounds Nov. 6-8

(Continued)

After years of teaching in university classrooms and working as a museum director, Dr. Lori was inspired to start appraising antiques after an unexpected encounter with a 75-year-old woman. “This woman told me her story. She had recently sold an historic George Washington document $50 that was worth $50,000! She said she needed the $50 to pay her electric bill. When I met her, I thought, this woman could be my mother—anyone could make that mistake.”

Dr. Lori says, “That woman’s mistake inspired me to share my education and expertise. So, I do just that presenting over 150 antique appraisal shows and appraising 20,000 objects that audiences bring me to review every year.”

Dr. Lori shares insider information about antiques at www.DrLoriV.com and to 9.5 million readers through her internationally syndicated column featured in 406 newspapers worldwide and on her blog for Lifetime Television.
