  1. I saw the most beautiful dishes made in Germany I've ever seen the pattern was so beautiful, could German patterns be expensive?

  2. Have you been to the Paris France Flea Market? There were ton's of silver, crystal, china, etc everywhere. I wish I had know more about their value. I ultimately just bought what I liked, and what would fit into my suitcase. Lot's of fun!!

  3. I would enjoy knowing about french dishes – specifically Limoge pieces. I love this video – thanks for the information.

  4. Dr. Lori, I have a table that has been in my family forever. I can find no information on it. How can I get a picture to you.

  9. Dr. Lori , i am storing my fine china with bubble wrap, because, i am concerned, because i have to stack the dishes . please advise . i don't think the flat paper will not prevent cracking ..

  10. Dr. Lori, I used to collect demitasse cups, at Flea Markets in Ct., what should I look for to determine if any are valuable? I also have a collection of thimbles, one is 25 yr Jubilee from England, a few others that appear to be antiques, some of the also Avon Ladies thimbles. Would I be able to send you a few pictures of ones that I think might be sellable? My husband andI are in need of downsizing and funds for medical bills and wonder what we might get some cash for before we sell them at a garage sale. Thank you so much.

  11. Dr. Lori, you were very informative and made it easy to remember what you said because of your bubbly personality and touch of humor with your descriptions.

  12. You are awesome DR. Lori… I laughed when you said if there is a picture on the plate its not to be eaten off but if it's plain it's ok..LOL
