After the Trip
* * *
went on the DnD Paris Trip and was blown away because Jaap was able help
me realize a cost saving of 1000 Euros with just one item. I was doing
all the wrong things and by applying just one of his tips it worked to
my favor. I will definitel use this idea again!-
My daughter and I went on the trip for a chance to learn but slso to
have a great time before moving back to the US. In minutes we were
wrapped up in Jaap's explanations. Because the course was
informative but not full of statistics and dates but real
information we could apply while shopping that day immediately.
"We visited friends in Australia and after complimenting their collection of antiques, they volunteered that the only pieces that held the value according to what the dealer told them was that of Dutch & Dutch for a Dutch bombe chest of drawers."
--message relayed to DnD, 3 yrs later during an Open House wkend
We just moved into our new home and wanted you to know that all of our antiques survived the move!
DnD art and antiques patron who took the antiques course
so glad I went on this course. I was too timid to use the our
tips immediately, but once I found what I wanted, seeing you in
action actually doing what you talked about was a real windfall.
I could never have got 2,000 Euros off the clock I wanted
without your expertise. Thanks for helping me get this great
souvenir in Paris.

....We were aware
there would be a course on board, and my collegiate daughter was not sure
this would be a good trip for our purpose. We wanted one last trip together
to Paris before moving back to the US. We signed up with some
hesitation but within minutes we were glued to your lively presentation and
animated answers to questions. I enjoyed it because it was not so full of
years and dates and statistics I just never remember. I have
definitely been doing some things the wrong way and you made it funny and
relaxing to find out how to change my ways. It was a pretty full day
and we had really enjoyable farewell to Paris...
