Treasure or junk? If you’ve ever wondered whether anyone would pay money for your stuff, or just wanted to know if your “valuables” are actually valuable, you should check out Price It! Antiques and Collectibles.
Using data from ebay, GoAntiques, TIAS and select Auction Houses, Price It! compiles pricing information on any kind of collectible you can think of, from toys and sports memorabilia to liquor bottles and cookie jars. Full of images, descriptions, and prices, just browsing this database is fascinating.
If you are a more serious collector, not only can you find descriptions and recent selling prices of items, there are also articles on repair, restoration and conservation of antiques.

This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathon Tropper
No one is more surprised than Judd Foxman when his father passes away. Not so much by the death, but by the nonreligious patriarch’s last wish to have the family sit Shiva, a Jewish tradition that requires his mother and siblings to spend an entire week together under one roof. This wouldn’t be so bad if Judd’s family wasn’t so dysfunctional. As this group of unique characters are forced to spend time together old wounds are brought to surface and they are made to deal with issues they would have rather continued to ignore. The only family member not present is Judd’s wife who has been openly having an affair. As Judd unwillingly reconnects with his family and struggles to deal with the reality of his deteriorating marriage what results is a novel full of biting, albeit slightly dark humor with realizations about family life and love.
