You could be sitting on the painting, or collectable that is worth big money. How can you find out? Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal.

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 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. 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.

How many times have you looked at Grandma's necklace, or that painting that hung on your uncle's wall, or something you picked up cheap at a rummage sale. Bring it along and see if it is worth something.

This session is part of an on-going public education program offered by the St. Louis County Historical Society.  Call (218) 733-7568 for further information.
