John Marfoglia grew up around the antiques business. His father was an artist who worked with antiques. John acquired the skills of buying and selling, learning the business while growing up in the area. John didn’t go to college; he started out as a general contractor. His peers convinced him to leave that business to become a part-time appraiser, which he has been for over 19 years. He has had his own store on Hertel Avenue for over ten years. In between his part- and full-time work, he worked 18 national shows per year. He has an internet business that specializes in antiques research, which he now uses more than his reference books. We would like to thank John for his valuable assistance in organizing and executing the Antiques Home Show.
