How much are your antiques and auction finds worth? You can find out at this popular fundraiser in Southport, NC. It’s kind of like the famous Antiques Road Show on PBS.
As owners of interesting items that they have purchase or inherited along the way line up with their possessions at the annual P.E.O. Antique Appraisal Fair.
These owners are excited to find out if they are suddenly rich, meanwhile others learn something about the age and history of their treasures as they meet with one of several antiques experts.
Local artist Virginia “Bunny” Lauzon was excited to learn from appraiser Robert Brown of Northrop Antiques Mall that her “School Days” series of lithographs by the famous american artist Norman Rockwell are worth between $3,000 and $5,000 each. She has said that she has no intention of selling any of them. “I just wanted to know what they are worth,”.
The 2018 event will be held on Sunday, February 25 from 12:30 to 4 pm at the Southport Community Center.
All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward college scholarships, educational loans and financial assistance for women to further their education.
All items must be hand-carried — no 19th-century armoires, please.
Certified antique appraisers, both specialists and generalists, will be on hand to give participants their opinions about the value of their items.
