Old Town to hold antiques appraisal show

Posted Aug. 17, 2011, at 12:38 p.m.

OLD TOWN, Maine — The Old Town Museum, 353 Main St., will host its first Antique Appraisal Show at 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 21.

Participants can bring a maximum of three antiques. The fees for the appraisals are $10 for one item, $18 for two and $25 for three. All proceeds will go toward the Old Town Museum, according to a press release.

“Folks are welcome to bring all sorts of antiques,” said Carol May, a member of the museum’s board of directors. “The only exceptions are stamps, coins, bottles and books.”

The show features Bruce A. Buxton, a Portland-based antique appraiser.

Items too large to transport to the show can still be appraised by bringing in photographs and documentation.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the show runs until 2 p.m. There is no registration, so appraisal spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For information, call the museum at 827-7256.
