Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show
Just completed the Pittsburgh Home and Garden show held in Cranberry Twp Pa. Normally we have a couple of hundred people who attend these events but the great snowstorm of 2010 seems to have kept most people at home. 2 feet of snow!! An event that normally attracts thousands had less than 50 show up on Saturday and not to many more on Sunday. Still the die hards showed up. Gibson guitars, violins, books and jewelry dominated.
The winner is the Gibson guitar. We gave it an estimate of $800-1200. It was an early guitar most likely from the 1920's but the condition was fair. It would be a good player. The owners decided to STASH it for now. They were really happy about the appraised value but just are not ready to part with it. Keep an eye out for these because the prices can easily reach into the thousands.
