Do you have trash or treasure in your home? Join us for an Appraisal Roadshow on Saturday, March 21. We will have a gemologist and a generalist appraiser from Paradigm Experts on hand at 9:30AM and 11:30AM to offer appraisals of up to two items per person. Items to consider bringing include jewelry, silver, coins, time pieces, furniture, glass, porcelain, paintings, bronze, toys, documents, and any other items (except stamps). For each item, the entire audience will learn what it is, what it’s worth, and what they can do with it. You do not need to bring an item to come and enjoy the show.
Register online to have your item appraised or to attend the show. Antique and boutique vendor booths will be onsite to browse and buy from.
Limited number of tickets are available
- General Admission Tickets are $12 for the appraisal of 1 item.
You may bring 1 extra item for an additional fee of $5.
