I have just acquired this sampler from a local resale shop. Could you please tell me the value of it? Can you also tell me who you sold it to, and for how much? Thanks in advance for this info. Regards, Dolores

Dolores, I believe I spotted the sampler in an antique store in Minneapolis a few years ago and posted it so Kirkwood descendants could find it. Don't even recall the shop. Should have mentioned it. Glad you got it. If you google family trees you may find descendants who will cherish it. It might even be evaluated by Antiques Roadshow when they come your way.

Thank you so much for your reply. I would like to sell this sampler, but have no idea what to ask for it. Do you have any idea? Or could you advise me in any way. Regards, Dolores

Dolores, You might take a digital photo of the sampler & post it in several places. Somewhere there is a Beard or Kirkwood who would cherish it. Just a matter of contacting them.
