  1. How would I find the value of very small antique bathtubs (I kept 3) that came from an old hotel in Livingston, MT when it was renovated?

    I read of your site in Antique Trader and I thank you for your generous attitude in helping people that are novice’s in the area of antiques and estate sales. I will depend upon your advice.

  2. Hello Beth,

    Thanks for the visit…

    If I had your small bathtubs, and I was trying to figure out their value, I would start by taking some photos of them, and sending them to Architectural Salvage Yards in your area…There’s Ridgeway in Livingston…they might be able to help…

    If they can’t, maybe they can point you in the right direction…

    Good Luck
