It’s time for our Annual Antique Appraisal Fundraiser, and we are so excited to take the show on the road to the Glencoe City Center. The Glencoe Historical Preservation Society History Room is the ideal place to hold our event, with historic displays that tell the history of Glencoe, MN. Each year you bring us family heirlooms, collectables, and garage sale finds that our well trained appraisers identify and appraise, for either re-sale or insurance purposes. Many guests though also want to know how they can preserve their antique treasures. So Museum Director Lori Pickell-Stangel will be giving advice on how to handle, store, and display items, as well as recommending preservation products for family heirlooms.
The appraisal program is narrated by auctioneer Kathy Krone. Kathy not only aids in appraising items, but picks out key items of value and/or interest and explains what makes the item valuable, rare or unique. Kathy will be joined by appraiser Lynn Buck. Lynn lives in Hutchinson, MN and specializes in quilts, textiles, china, glass,flatware, jewelry and collectibles. Not sure if we can appraise your item, give us a call 320-587-2109.
An appraisal costs just $7 per item, or $15 for three items. You can choose to have the item shown as a part of the program or evaluated privately, and after your appraisal, you can get preservation advice for Free! Even if you don’t have an item to be appraised, this program is a fun and educational way to learn more about antiques. Admission is just $3 to watch and learn. See you at the Antique Appraisal!
