This dynamic pair has been collectors and dealers in antiques since the 1960s, having seen many changes in the antique
market and industry over this span of time. Marilyn has a keen knowledge of jewelry and American Indian memorabilia,
as well as other categories. Decades of research and study in these fields have helped to define her as a resident
expert in today's markets of such. Richard, as well, is known for his knowledge and appreciation of high-end
antiques with specialties in fine clocks, rugs, primitives, and furniture. Having dealt and collected in these categories
for decades, Richard shares this knowledge willingly through professional appraisals. This couple’s expertise is
derived from dealing in antiques since the 1960s and in living amongst these treasured pieces. Hailing from south
central Indiana, they have been married for 43 years in 2010, and “are trying for 50+.” firstname.lastname@example.org
