PONTOTOC – One man’s trash could be another man’s treasure, and an appraiser is just the person to tell the difference.
The Pontotoc County Historical Society is hosting an antique appraisal fair today so folks can learn what their old possessions are worth.
Accredited appraiser Celia Fleishhacker will appraise glasswear, furniture, clothing, linen, costume jewelry, prints, needlework, pottery, toys and more. Fleishhacker will not appraise guns, knives, stamps or coins.
“This is an opportunity for folks to come out and have their collectibles and antiques appraised by a professional,” said Martha Jo Coleman, Town Square Museum director and a member of the historical society. Proceeds from the appraisal fair will go to the historical society and the Town Square Post Office and Museum.
The appraisal fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Pontotoc County Library.
It’s $20 for the first item appraised, $10 for the second and $5 for each additional item.
