NORWICH, CT – Three Rivers Community College - Adventures in Lifelong Learning is hosting its Second Annual Antique Appraisal Fair, Saturday, October 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Three River Community College Cafeteria at 574 New London Turnpike in Norwich, CT.
The Fair is patterned after the “Antiques Road Show” and will feature Connecticut Appraiser John Allen along with experts from Deb Jani Antiques in Lebanon, Van's Elegant Antique in Old Saybrook, and Leone’s Auction Gallery in Jewett City.
This fun family event will be a great opportunity for participants to learn the value of the silver or antique glass they’ve collected, the mid-century modern furniture in their garage, the dolls and dollhouses in the attic or the rugs and textiles in the basement. Our mantra is…If you can drag it, lift it or carry it in, we’ll appraise it!
The event is open to the public and reservations are not required. Please come early, because the appraisals will be done on a first-come, first served basis.
There is a $20.00, per person, admission fee which will allows participants to have up to three collectibles or antiques verbally appraised. 100% of the proceeds will go to Three Rivers Community College Student Scholarships.
We will not be able to appraise antique guns or rifles. “All firearms, ammunition and explosives including fireworks are prohibited on campus grounds.”
