The ugly sculpture, the old painting that hung at Grandpa's house, they might all be worth money.

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, June 19. 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 rotunda.

Please arrive before 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.

You might be sitting on something big or nothing at all. Come and have some fun and show it to a couple of experts. They may have good news and tell you that you are sitting on a pile of cash, or a pile if you know what I mean.
