“I never would have had this wonderful experience without the help of Thom Pattie and WorthPoint,” Bullock says. “And I’ll never drive by another dumpster without wondering what treasure it might hold.”
Atlanta-based WorthPoint is a social network for collectors and a search engine rolled into one. Its Web site (www.worthpoint.com) is changing the process of assessing worth for collectibles by providing a vast database of sales records wherein an individual can assess the worth of their own collection. Through WorthPoint, collectors connect with experts to learn more about authenticity and value in art, antiques, and vintage items. Through the WorthPoint online community, members can contact other collectors interested in buying, selling, or swapping stories, and they can share their insight and knowledge through the forums and wikis.
