Get your family treasures appraised

Published 12:05 am Sunday, May 2, 2010

Do you have items in your house that have been passed down from generation to generation? Have you purchased a special treasure at a flea market? Have you wondered if these items have a real value?

Join the Concordia Parish Library on Thursday at the Vidalia Library from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The library will host James Guercio and Virginia Netterville Conn who are our local experts.

They will provide a verbal appraisal of two of your special treasures. This evening event will remind you of the “Antiques Road Show.” The library and co-sponsor Concordia Bank & Trust will provide you with a free opportunity to have your special treasures appraised.

Bring your favorite two items and you may bring a picture of a large piece such as furniture.

There will be no Civil War expert available.

It will be a fun evening to see glass, china, jewelry, furniture and bric-a-brac that have been collected.

The Antiques and Collectable Program also connects to the American Library Association’s Preservation Week.

Great preservation tips will be passed along through a free bookmark that features easy-to-follow guidelines for protecting personal treasures, family heirlooms, collectibles and more.

Everyone has something special and has wondered if it has a value.

Mark your calendars for Thursday and of course everything at Concordia Parish Library is free and open to the public!

This might be your “lucky” evening!
