Discover the value of your hidden treasures!

Check your attics, overstuffed closets, memorabilia sitting on your side table. Ever wonder how much it is worth? Need to resolve a “it’s a precious treasure” versus “it’s worth nothing” debate? You can settle those arguments at our 3rd annual Antiques & Collectible Appraisal Fair.

A local local auctioneer and other professional experts will be on site to provide a verbal identification of items. If the item is quite large, a photo may be brought instead of the actual item.
