    The article is excellent, but I would like a more in depth article.
    Maybe in a future issue?

    If the company that makes what you collect still exists, such as Fenton, check to see if they have a website. Often, you can sign up for a free newsletter online, that will tell you of any shows or exhibits coming up, also, tell you what pieces are worth and the history behind them.
    Check libraries. You’d be amazed, at the number of books are written about practically anything from furniture to glassware to toys to tools that can be collected! If you find one book particularly helpful, regarding price and worth and info on condition and care, it might be worth seeing if you can buy a copy at a bookstore or online.

    Can anyone recommend a reputable dealer that would give a fair price on items to be sold? I know there are many dealers out there, but I don’t know how to find one. Thank you..
