Could you have hidden treasures tucked away somewhere? Perhaps that painting passed down in your family, your mother's cut glass bowl, or Grandma's quilt? Antiques experts will offer informed verbal opinions during the Greater Milford Events & Arts Council (GMEAC) Antiques Discovery Day, Saturday, August 18, from 9 AM to 2 PM at the Eastside Christian Church, 5874 Montclair Blvd. in Milford.
Andrew Richmond from Garth's Auctions in Delaware, Ohio will lead a team of volunteer experts who will provide informed opinions on antique items including china, glassware, silver, folk art, paintings, prints, textiles, early toys and dolls, and furniture-all small enough to be carried by a single person. A certified gemologist from Kirk Jewelers will look at jewelry. Certain items will not be looked at---stamps, coins, military items, 20th century or later toys and dolls, anything electrified, and large furniture.
The cost will be $5.00 per item, with a limit of three items per person. There will be coffee, cold drinks, and snacks available.
