You never know what you may be sitting on when you bring it in to be appraised. I was once told, it's not what it's worth, it's what someone will pay for it. That is what the experts will tell you, and a little history too. If you have a valuable thing or just a family thing passed down to you, they might know more about it.
Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, May 17, 2017! 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 servicefrom 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.
