What are my items worth? We are asked that question daily in the auction business. What something is truly worth is what another person is willing to pay for it. Many people believe their items are worth a certain dollar amount because that is what they paid for it. Or they base their items value on what they paid originally then subtract a few dollars from that and believe they have a legitimate market value. Others tell us "I saw it selling on eBay for this much so I know it's worth at least that".
 Here's the bottom line of what anything is worth. An items value is based on what people on an open market are willing to pay. An auction is the perfect way to place a fair market value on an item. Because of the nature of an auction, buyers are not pressured to pay a retail price and place the dollar amount at what they will pay. Because their is competitive bidding this raises the dollar value based on the demand for the item. Items in great demand bring in high dollars. An auction shows whether or not an item is in great demand. Many sellers do not believe the outcome of their items at an auction because they either have too high or too low expectation of what their items are worth.
 A great example of this is the 1970 Ford boss 302 mustang pictured with this post. Our certified appraiser did a market study of this type of car sold at auction and based on it's condition advised the seller it "may" sell for approximately $15,000 based on the last several similar cars sold at auction. The seller was stunned when he saw the final bid and we were as well. This goes to show that the demand for this car was up and people were willing to pay for it.
 "I saw it selling on eBay so I know it's worth at least this....". eBay is a great place to buy and sell as well as get an estimate of what something is worth in the open auction market. The key is to click the box labeled "Sold" to get the real fair market value of an item on eBay. Many people look at what it is "selling" for not what it "sold" for, there is a Big difference!
 Make sure when placing a value on an item to check the sold box and search the market for several sales of similar items. Doing this will help to understand the true vale of an item.

We are always pleasantly surprised when we come across collectables that we have not liquidated prior. Dairy farm collectables are one of those surprises. We processed a huge collection of antique and vintage milk bottles, Dairy farm items, Milk promotional and several more dairy theme items. After researching the dairy collectables market we realized there is a huge following of Dairy/milk collectors that look for these items.
 There is even a " National Association of milk bottle collectors ", a collectors newsletter, "The milk route", facebook groups and more. The amazing thing about an auction is we find these groups and realize there is a collectors group for nearly everything out there. The dairy collectors are very unique as they collect milk bottles that used to be a norm in our society and have gone away with the advent of plastic milk containers. Glass milk bottles are unique as they are nearly a work of art these days and in some cases are very valuable.
 Amber glass milk bottles were designed to slow the effects of UV light from spoiling milk. Cream top bottles were designed to separate the milk cream from the actual milk. There are many other types and categories of milk bottles that have created a true collectors market. In some cases a single bottle may be worth $200-$300 and others only $10 or $20. Regardless of value the milk bottle and dairy farm memorabilia ic a genuine collectable which carries a viable market value like all good collectables.

Faberge, Cartier, Tiffany, Georg Jensen, Jean Schlumberger, Rene Lalique, Josef Hoffmann and Alexander Calder. These are probably names with which you are familiar. They are famous for design, art and style, but did you know each also designed and made cuff links?

The first evidence of the use of cuff links are not actually cuff links at all. In the 1500s well to do and wealthy men wore ruffled shirts many of which had diamond studs and shirt buttons but when they were fashioning their shirt sleeves – it was simple piece of ribbon or yarn.

Throughout the following centuries there were many variations on the ribbon and yarn ties including buttons with chains and painted miniatures in France, but in the mid-20th century, cuff links had their heyday. Think Madmen and mass marketing with the advent of the popularity of television. Everyone was wearing cuff links and manufacturers were happy to oblige. Swank, Krementz, Kum-A-Part and a host of others issued new collections every year for Christmas and Father’s Day. Many were issued as sets with wallets and key chains. Sets were issued as commemorative special editions and every American President in the modern era have had sets made to give away to donors and as ‘thank you’ gifts.

Collectors fall into several categories, but most limit their purchases to a specific category. For example, some only collect Presidential or political cuff links. Others are drawn to specialty cuff links with their favorite pet or novelty cuff links. Some only collect cuff links designed by a specific jewelry maker – such as Georg Jensen (Danish jewelry designer, 1960s) or Tiffany & Co. Some collectors only seek out cuff links for women or cloisonné. As with any collectable there are the fine jewelry versions as well in gold with diamonds, rubies or gemstones.

For the most part, they were relatively simple and inexpensive, but did you know that there are only about 14 types of closures. The cuff link style that most of us are familiar with looks like a swivel or hinged T-bar and was created in 1960. So, if you see a cuff link set and it has this T-bar closure you know the set is post 1960. There are discs with chains, nut and bolt style (1930), cuff links with fixed football ends, hinged football, threaded screw style and even a propeller style where you put the end through the button hole and twist it like the propeller of a plane engine. In England a popular cuff link set had a retractable chain. In general, the simpler the fitting – usually the older it will be. Unfortunately, many older cuff links have lost their mates and single cuff links have very little value.
