You didn't win the Lottery, or the mega millions, but you could be sitting on a treasure right in your home. That old painting you bought for 50 cents, an old vase from your Grandma, or maybe a figurine or doll, it could be worth a lot of money, or just valuable to your family. Find out at the next Antique Appraisal.

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center for a free appraisal on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. The St. Louis County Historical Society has arranged for Dan Sershon of Northland Estate Services and Denny Mager of Northern Specialty, both experts in antique appraisal, to be at your service from noon until 3 PM in the Great Hall. Please arrive no later than 2:30 PM to register in person.

You may bring up to two items per person for an informal oral identification and evaluation of each antique. If the piece is too large or fragile to be hand-carried, clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels will be sufficient.

Past participants have thoroughly enjoyed the appraiser’s comments on what is always an interesting assortment of antiques and collectibles. ARCO coffee is available while you wait.

Call (218) 733-7568 for further information.
