Check out how I help people on the Nate Berkus show!

On September 14th I appeared on the Nate Berkus show. I helped a family  ”clean”  their attic and decide what to get rid of, what to save and what to get appraised!  It was so much fun and I was surprised as to how many great items I found in their attic.  In another segment, viewers from the studio audience brought things in for me to appraise!  Check it out! and if you have something, send it in to the show. Maybe you will be picked!

    Love your show. I’m 82 and decorating my home has been important since I was a 17 yr. old bride out in the deserts of West TX. My very proper Bostonian husband was aghast when he came home and the front door was YELLOW!!
    He adjusted quickly - my cabinets were natural wood, white, antiqued, insides at times agua, and for the bi-centennial they were red, white, and blue. He said he never knew whether to sit down and eat, or stand up and salute.
    I know you like to use beads - always have done that, and bracelets are wonderful on candles, costume rings on tapers.
    And your ceiling can sparkle with light and rainbows if you place faceted crystal articles so the sun reaches them (And at 82 I can use all the sparkle I can find).
    Keep up the good work.

    I have spent the last 5 weeks recovering from surgery, and lo and behold I found the Nate Berkus Show. The notebook at my side is now filled with ideas to work on within my home, and I can hardly wait to get back on my feet to start. Thank you for a wonderful show and great ideas.

    I have a large set of japanese china, with its own matching glasses and fingerbowls, purchased from japan in the 1950s, never been used. I am 73 years old and need to sell them. I willnever use them and I need the most money I can get. I do not know how to go about selling them, or what they are worth. I think they are very pretty and simple. I only live on s/s and need to sell them. Can you pleasw help me?

    I was so excited to find someone who loves Luray dishes like I do. As a child I visited with a woman who I was named for often and she used Luray every day. When she passed away and I had to dispose of her belongings, I found her Luray dishes packed up. I don’t use them but love to just look at them and remember my childhood. When ever I see a piece, I buy it. I didn’t know there was a book about Luray dishes, I would appreciate the name of it.
