"What an educational and enjoyable day you provided our club
- Worcester Women's Club
"On behalf of the Evangelical Church of Westbro,
MA I would like to enthusiastically thank you for the fundraising
event at which you were featured at our Church this Spring.
The attendees unanimously rave about the education they received and
the interest that was generated by your presentation. The
proceeds exceeded $1,700 - an amount that helps our Church greatly
in extremely difficult financial times. I do want to stress
how struck we all were by the professionalism and authenticity you
brought to us and we hope to have you back next year."

Millennials Don't Want Your Stuff
In a recent Washington Post article Stuff it:
Millennials Nix Their Parents’ Treasures by Jura
Koncius states “A seismic shift of stuff is underway in
homes all over America” and I agree wholeheartedly. I
am approached on a daily basis with items from people
who are trying to clean out estates who think what they
paid for something in the past is still relevant today.
An example given the article is “Stephanie Kenyon, 60,
the owner of Sloans & Kenyon Auctioneers and Appraisers
in Chevy Chase, says the market is flooded with boomer
rejects. “Hardly a day goes by that we don’t get calls
from people who want to sell a big dining room set or
bedroom suite because nobody in the family wants it.
Millennials don’t want brown furniture, rocking chairs
or silver-plated tea sets. Millennials don’t polish
silver.” The formal furniture is often sold at bargain
prices, or if it’s not in good shape, it might go
straight to the dump.”
market is getting smaller there is still finds to be
made in fine art and other items that are more unique.
I hope I can help you find a treasure but “the old days”
are over and we all must adjust to the new reality of
