You have the whole Peanuts collection of bars of soap, your Simpson bottle openers are sitting in a drawer, or your Grandmother gave you an odd looking lamp. You wonder if these things could be what you retire on. Maybe you have some collectibles in a box that you've always wondered if there is any money in it.

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, August 17, 2016! 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. You are encouraged to arrive by 2:30 pm.

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.

Call (218) 733-7568 or e-mail for further information.
