Testimonials for the PAAA

"We had William D'Anjolell and Peter LoPresti out to the Quakertown Farmers Market to appraise for our Antiques "Roadshow" Appraisal Fair. Bill and Peter were great with all our guests and very knowledgeable about the items that came into the show. Our guests had an amazing time and kept asking when the next "Roadshow" will be. This was a fun, educational, and entertaining event that we will definitely do again!"

"Bill D'Anjolell along with his colleague, Peter LoPresti, gave us a very informative session on the appraisal of our antique items. They not only reviewed the background to each item, but relayed information on the current status of antiques in the marketplace. I would recommend bringing their services to your group or community."

"The Saucon Valley Conservancy (SVC), caretakers of the Heller Homestead adjacent to Hellertown, PA, held its Second Annual Antique Appraisal Day on October 15, 2023. This is a major fundraiser for SVC and this year was no exception.

We were again fortunate to have Bill D'Anjolell and his partner, Peter LoPresti as our appraisers. While each participant was there to learn the value of their antiques, they and the SVC Board members came away with so much more. Both Bill and Peter took the time to educate all of us about the history and significance of each item they appraised which in the end, was the most valuable aspect according to all who attended.
Bill and Peter have obviously gathered an impressive amount of information on a broad spectrum of antiques and their knowledge is incredibly valuable for people wanting to know more about their personal treasures, many of which came from their ancestors.

SVC has been very fortunate to have had Bill and Peter as appraisers which made this years event a successful one. We are looking forward to their return in 2024. So if you want the very best to appraise your antiques, contact Bill D'Anjolell."

"Dock Woods of Living Branches would like to thank Pennsylvania Antiques Appraisers' Association for providing an enriching afternoon, providing a very professional two hour Appraisal for over 40 Residents who were excited to learn about the history and value of their two items they brought along for a free Appraisal. We really loved the knowledge that Bill D'Anjolell and Ashley King provided for each item, and it was quite exciting to hear the value of some of these precious pieces. Because this Antique Appraisal Road Show was so popular, I plan for their return in the near future. Thank You again for providing a fun and professional event."

"What a lot of "treasures" reside here at Dock Woods. On Thursday, we had free appraisals by qualified professionals. It was like being on the "Antiques Roadshow". There were appraisals ranging from $5.00 to $2000.00. Paintings, dolls, crystal, pocket watches just to name a few. We hope to do this again!"

"The Saucon Valley Conservancy in Bethlehem, PA held its first Antique Appraisal Day on June 25, 2022. By all accounts, it was a successful fundraiser due to the expertise and charisma of Bill D'Anjolell and Ashley King. They not only gave the participants a monetary value of their treasured antiques, Bill and Ashley spent time sharing the history behind each piece. As a result, all of our participants received invaluable insights into their special possessions. While some were expecting a higher appraisal, others were obviously surprised at the value of their antiques. But all participants were especially pleased with the knowledge they received about their antiques, many of which were handed down from older family members with little information. The feedback we received from the participants was heart warming which means we are already looking forward to repeating this event next year with Bill and Ashley."

"Canals End Antiques in Bristol celebrated our one year anniversary in February this year with a free appraisal event. It was hosted by Bill, Ashley, & Dan from the Pennsylvania Antiques Appraisal Association. Everyone was so thrilled with not only the information but also the entertainment! Several people returned with additional treasures to be evaluated, and the event ran even longer than planned. We will definitely do this again!"

"I, personally, thought that the time and care all of you took looking over whatever was brought in was so considerate. You made all of us feel that what we had really was important in some way or other no matter what the value.

I've already received calls from attendees about how much they enjoyed the "roadshow" Bill, Dan and Ashley put on for us. All hope that there will be an encore. We were all impressed by the depth of knowledge all three exhibited and how entertaining it was for us to hear what you had to say about our treasures. Thank you again for a great afternoon."

To keep the other guests engaged in the process, they would make announcements to the audience with their findings. We had a variety of items - paintings, vases, tools, figurines, to name a few - it was fun learning about their history and their value. Overall, an engaging evening for all."

"The gentlemen from the PAAA were beyond what I had imagined; not only did they make the appraised items interesting with their knowledge, their presentation of the items were fresh and exciting. They have a dynamic team with astounding experience and personality. This made our Antique Appraisal event unique, entertaining, and enjoyable. We had some amazingly unique pieces. I was shocked when someone brought in an item with an appraised value totaling 21,000 dollars! Needless to say, the owner of the item walked out of our facility with a smile on his face. PAAA exceeded expectations, I would highly recommend, and will use them again."

"I wanted to thank our friends, Dan Worden, Ashley King and Bill D'Anjolell for sharing their expertise with our residents and local Newtown neighbors. The event was an overwhelming success! With over fifty participants, the gentleman professionally shared their wealth of knowledge. Being able to see the variety of treasured items brought in for appraisal, hearing the sentimental stories attached and learning their monetary value was quite an experience! The gentlemen offered great advice in addition to appraising the items that were brought to be examined. They were able to refer to antique dealers with certain specialties, discuss what would make an item more or less desirable and how to sell or retain the treasures for added savings. This was our first event of this type and I'm already planning the next one. The trio was organized, ran all facets of the event, and everyone had a really great time!"
