Is this amphora-like jug as old as it appears? Its owner will find out soon at the Fair.

This kitty was worn frequently by a lady who would be exactly 101 years old were she alive today.

On Sunday, Sept. 24, Salmon Brook Historical Society (SBHS) will host an Appraisal Fair at the society grounds at 208 Salmon Brook Street. Several certified appraisers will be on-site in the Preservation Barn, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here is your chance find out if your _________(fill in the blank) fulfills your long-held hope that it might be “worth something.” 

Appraisals of Asian artifacts, jewelry, works of art and antique firearms will be offered for a $5 fee per item. Appraisals will be limited to five items per person. Bring items of all kinds: the above are just suggestions to get you thinking. 

There will be directed parking on society grounds, starting at 10:30 a.m. 

No appointment is necessary; appraisals will be performed on a “first come, first served” basis. As there may be a wait, consider bringing a chair. 

Please do not bring pets, food or drinks into the appraisal area. 

Coffee and Mrs. Murphy’s donuts will be available for purchase. 

“Here’s what I’m bringing: a portrait of a horse’s head that my father bought for me at a country auction when I was a little girl. That makes it pretty old, maybe even 100 years old. I’m excited—I always thought it might be worth something!” —Faith Tyldsley
