'On the Road for Antiques with Tom Bassett' in Lakefield Saturday

Are there some "unique items" stored in your home or garage? Are they "junk" or "priceless treasures?" Is E-bay a good spot to find or sell?

Now you have an opportunity to know more about those stored-away treasures through "On the Road for Antiques with Tom Bassett" coming to Lakefield Saturday.

The event, which will be held at the Jackson County Central Middle School Auditorium in Lakefield, runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with doors openeing at 9 a.m.
Guests are welcome to come and go as they please.

Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for students and $3 per item appraised with a limit of two items per person.

Determining the value of an antique or collectible means more than just locating an item in a price guide. Tom Bassett, a member of the New England Appraisers Association, is from Lincoln Neb., and has 30 years experience as an antique and coin appraiser. An expert in knowing the current supply and demand of antiques, Tom conducts appraisals for banks and law firms in addition to teaching classes on "Bargain Hunting for Antiques."

This program is an opportunity to learn about antiques, collectibles, buying/selling, using E-Bay, and more. Tom will tell you "what's hot" and "what's not!"

Attendees may bring one or two items (if too large, bring a photo) and have Bassett give an honest professional appraisal. Guests will enjoy his fresh, motivational, meaningful and humorous style, as well as his terrific business sense!
