Back by popular demand…Mark Moran, appraiser of antiques and collectibles, and decorative art. He will be at the Library on Saturday, October 25, 2015, starting at 1 pm. Each preregistered adult will be allowed to bring 1 item for appraisal. Early sign-up is recommended as the first 40 items will be appraised at no charge. After that, additional items will be appraised at the rate of $10 each. Please call the library at 507-534-3425 to schedule an appraisal. The event is open to the public, but preregistration is required to have an item appraised.
Objects eligible for appraisal include fine art, furniture, ceramics, glassware, vintage photographs, advertising, folk art, toys, metalware, clocks, costume jewelry, musical instruments. Ineligible items include any weapons (with the exception of folding knives with advertising), Nazi memorabilia, coins and paper money, fine jewelry (including precious gems), and Beanie Babies.
Opinions of value are informal, and may not be used for insurance or charitable donations, which require a certified appraisal.
