Appraisals and Estate Services in the St Petersburg, Pinellas, and Tampa Bay area


About Claycomb Appraisals and Estate Services

We are a family owned business that has been in Saint Petersburg, Florida for almost four decades. My Mother, Susan opened her first shop in the early 1970s on what is now MLK St. N. and was called Holly Amber Antiques. My Father, Les, and I were an active part of this shop, helping with the shop, working at shows and running estate sales as a family when not involved with work or school. When he retired in 1988 he joined her full time. A decade later, after completing a bachelor’s degree from USF a teaching career had less interest for me than the antiques I had grown to love. We took over Memory Lane Antiques, which had been started by a good friend, in 1998. A few years after this I began taking over the appraisal end of the business.

Appraisal work is fulfilling for me. I can help people uncover a little of their lost history, whether it’s family history that’s specific to them or part of our collective history as Americans and human beings.

When I needed help with my father's estate, Claycomb Appraisals was courteous, quick, and understanding.
