ELIOT, Maine — With spring just around the corner, it is a great time to uncover some old treasures or find those items that have been forgotten about in the attic.
Who knows, maybe they’re worth something!
An antique appraisal will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Eliot Methodist Church to have the values of various items assessed by experts.
Hap Moore, of York, and Lee Horowitz, of Fitchburg, Mass., have more than 30 years of combined experience in antique appraisal.
Moore is a licensed auctioneer of antiques and personal property. He has appraised and auctioned estates, collections, old homes and single items since 1985. Horowitz’s expertise is in jewelry, coins/currency, precious metals and stamps. He is also a dealer himself and may offer to purchase items he’s interested in if the owner is looking to make some cash.
Residents are encouraged to stop by with their silver, old coins, art, china, paper currency and stamps. Furniture and jewelry items will be limited to one per person.
The cost for the verbal appraisal will be $10 for one item, $15 for two or $20 for three. There is a three-item limit per person.
All proceeds will benefit the Eliot Historical Society. Refreshments will be available.
