Next time you are in your garage or your basement you might look at that old salt shaker that Grandma gave you in a new way, if an expert were to tell you that it's worth some good money. Get out those nic nacs and haul 'em in to the Depot.

Bring your antique/collectible items to the Depot Wednesday, July 16, 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 can bring up to two items to be appraised. If you know more about it that might help you. 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.

In the past people have been surprised.....and you may be too. This may be the chance to see if something is worth money or can be put in the next garage sale.
