Everyone has that dream that they bought the Picasso at the rummage sale. Or the vase your aunt left you is an old link in the Chinese royalty. Today is your chance to find out if you have something you are sitting on that might bring in the money.

You're invited to bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal. 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 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.

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. Good luck!!
