Value This!: An Antique & Collectible Appraisal Improv
Presented by Leon Castner, Certified Appraiser
Admission: $5.00 per person (benefits Library programs). Each attendee may bring one item for appraisal.
Have a piece of glass or china, an old toy or game, book or ephemera, silver, coin, picture or painting, or any other item about which you’d like to know its history or value? Bring it in for an evening of enlightenment, enjoyment and, possibly, treasure. Leon will offer a general valuation of your item and will use it to weave a story about the world of antiques and collectibles.
