The Lynnfield Library is kicking off its 125th Birthday celebration with an “Antiques in the Attic” Appraisal Day on Monday, July 17 from 2-7 pm at the Meeting House on the Common.
Bring in your family treasures, inherited heirlooms, or flea market finds, and get a verbal auction estimate from one of the expert appraisers of Skinner Auctions & Appraisals. During your consultation, the appraiser will discuss issues of age and condition and provide an estimated value based on current market prices for a similar example. Participants will receive verbal information and an auction estimate, no written appraisals can be provided.
For services of china or silver, one example of each piece in a set accompanied by a list of the total number of pieces will serve to represent the entire set. Additionally, it is recommended that good quality photos be substituted for large or particularly fragile items.
Support the Friends of the Lynnfield Library with your $10 donation to get an item appraised. ($10/item, limit 3 items per person)
Tickets must be purchased in advance as there are a limited number of timeslots (120) available for appraisal. Reservations must be made in person, so please stop by the Lynnfield Library to buy your ticket (cash or check) and reserve a time slot to come in for your appraisal. Checks payable to Friends of the Lynnfield Library.
