Wondering what your family heirloom is worth? How about that old toy you picked up at the flea market on a warm July day?
Your questions can be answered at a free antiques appraisal event to be held Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Colonial Antique Mall, 890 Lake Avenue, Woodstock.
Three appraisers with decades of experience will be on hand to answer questions and evaluate items; Penny Welch, The Emporium; Ben Peterson, Nancy Ann’s Antiques; and Debbie McArdle, Iron Horse Antiques.
All appraisals at the event will be verbal and informal. If a written appraisal is necessary for insurance purposes, customers can make arrangements privately with an appraiser of their choice.
Participants will be assisted on a “first come, first serve” basis. There will be a limit of two items per person, per turn with numbers being distributed at the front desk. Depending upon the turnout, customers with more than two items can wait until others are served.
Lee Muto, owner of the mall, is the sponsor of the event and suggests participants bring a canned food item to be donated to the local food pantry.
