LANSING, Mich. — Curious about Grandma’s antique treasures you just inherited? In the afternoon on Sunday, September 22, you’ll have a local opportunity to discover more about those special items and how much they are worth.

The Mason Area Historical Society is hosting an Antiques Appraisal Fair presented by Mason’s Maple Street Mall from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. It will take place at the Mason Area Historical Museum, 200 E. Oak Street near downtown Mason.

The fee for the verbal appraisals will be $5 an item with a maximum of three items. Appraisals are done on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission is free to the public to view the appraisals in real time as they are done on stage by local specialists.

“This is the third time the Society has held this event and as a longtime viewer of similar television shows, I always look forward to seeing what people bring out of their attics for appraisal,” says Doug Klein, president of the Mason Area Historical Society. “It’s also a great final event for the 46 th annual Down Home Days community festival in Mason.”

Participants will want to come early to ensure their items are appraised before the end of the fair. There will be free refreshments for all and the Museum will also be open for viewing during this event. To add to the excitement, there will also be a drawing for a prize basket during the event.

Owners are responsible for their own items. No dolls, fine art, or large furniture will be appraised at the event. Those who have large bulky objects that can’t be carried are encouraged to bring photographs.

Mason Area Historical Society publications and memberships will also be available. For more information contact the museum at (517) 676-5974 or through their website.
