Our Friends at the Edgebrook Historical Society are having For What It?s Worth
? Appraisals like the Antique Road Show. So dust off those old ?TREASURES? , bring them in and Karl Gates will tell you what they are worth.
Karl Gates, a licensed appraiser with 30 plus years of experience, will discuss what attributes one should look for in an item to determine its worth as an antique and give a brief lecture on the general history of antiques and collectibles.
Audience members may bring two items for appraisal at the end of the lecture. Cost for the appraisal is $5.00 for each item
. Items should be at least 50 years old, no stamps or coins but pictures of furniture are accepted.
An ice cream sundae bar
, compliments of Ron Mondel, owner of the Edgebrook Chocolate shoppe will be served.
