‘Antiques Appraisal Fair’ March 6-7
By BARRY BURLESON
The Town and Country Garden Club is sponsoring an “Antiques Appraisal Fair” to raise money for upkeep of the historic 1837 Sabbath School Church building.
“If you’ve ever wanted to attend the ‘Antique Road Show,’ here is your opportunity to do something similar right here in Holly Springs,” said Lisa Liddy, one of the coordinators.
The event will be held Friday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, March 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building in Holly Springs.
Individuals can bring their antiques or collectibles to be looked at by professional appraisers from Atlanta, Ga. If the item is too large to bring to the Multi-Purpose Building, individuals can bring a photograph.
“You will not receive a written appraisal, but a fair market value of what it is worth,” Liddy said.
It is by reservation only; tickets (one per item) must be purchased in advance. They are $20 per ticket item. Deadline for buying tickets is February 21.
Contact Mickey Sealy, 662-609-0099, or Margaret Sherwood, 662-515-1671. Please specify Friday appraisal or Saturday appraisal.
For more information and ticket reservations, go to email@example.com.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Works by local artists and businesses will be on display – including paintings, jewelry, quilts, pottery, antiques and collectibles, and metal yard art.
The 1837 Sabbath School Church, being maintained by the Town and Country Garden Club, is located next door to Holly Springs City Hall.
