Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal Fair
May 10, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$2 – $10
Join us for our FIRST ever Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal Fair.
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?
A local antiques auctioneer and several antiques experts will be on site to do the evaluations. They can provide a verbal identification and appraisal of your antique treasures and collectibles.
Here are some examples of items to bring:
- old coins
- fine art
- military items
- sports memorabilia
- trading cards
- post cards
- vintage clothing and accessories
- small furniture
- general antiques
Too big to carry? Take some good photos from all angles and bring in your photos along with the dimensions of the object.
All appraisals include a FREE tour of the museum.
Refreshments are provided. All proceeds benefit the Historical Society.
