Heritage Road Show Held at Center for History
August 6, 2012 — Ever wonder about your artwork, antique or garage sale finds? Bring them to the Heritage Road Show taking place from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 18, at the Center for History for a verbal estimate of their market value. The event is hosted by the Center for History, Heritage Square, and WNIT Public Television. The cost per item is $5-cash only (no checks or credit cards will be accepted). Net proceeds benefit the Center for History and WNIT.
Qualified appraisers and antique experts will provide estimates for antique, vintage and collectible items, including artwork, costume jewelry, textiles, rugs, books, papers, militaria, pottery and porcelains. Items must be able to be carried in. Estimates will not be provided for coins, stamps or sports cards, and no firearms, weapons or items containing flammable liquids are allowed.
Appraisers include Jennifer Tobits, Joel Oppenheimer, Inc.; Paulette Katz
and Larry Fletcher, Methods, Inc.; Mike Nickol, Nickol Fine Arts; Max Black
Fine Arts; Al Casperson, A. Casperson Books; Phil Shrock, and Dave Cuyler.
Conservators from the noted Joel Oppenheimer, Inc., will conduct restoration evaluations of fine art, painting, photographs, works on paper and family heirlooms.
Also at that time, the Center for History will host the Fancy Pants Bazaar, an attic sale of items ranging from plain and fun to upscale. A marble top table, gilded picture frames, trophies, decorated toss pillows, dishes and kitschy decoratives are just some of the goods that will be sold.
