Are you getting ready for spring cleaning and are unsure what to do with all those things from years gone by tucked away in your attic or garage?
Has Grandma promised to give you something passed down in the family when you visit her this Easter? Are you wondering if some of those old things might actually be a treasure in disguise?
Stop by St. James Parish between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday to hear from local experts what your items might, in fact, be worth.
St. James will host its second annual Antique Evaluation Day in the Parish Memorial Center, 1275 B St.
Experts representing De Luna Jewelers, 3rd Street Jeweler, Main Street Antiques, Hastings Back Porch, Winters Refinishing and other community businesses will evaluate your family antiques, jewelry or other treasures and provide an estimate of their fair market value. Their estimations are advisory and are not meant to serve for insurance purposes.
So bring your jewelry, artwork (including Native American and Asian), household collectibles, small antiques, coins, sports memorabilia and military memorabilia for evaluation. Donations are $10 per item or five for $40. Proceeds will benefit the St. James Memorial Center Building Fund.
If you choose to donate any of the items to St. James, the monetary donation will be waived, and you will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
