Antiques show returns

Is it treasure or trash?

Come and find out for sure when the Granville Lioness Club holds their annual antique appraisal Thursday, Sept. 15.

In the tradition of the Public Broadcasting favorite Antiques Roadshow, professional appraisers Jim Marquis and Ron Marcus, of Freeman and Marcus Jewelers in Rutland, will evaluate your items and place an approximate value on them.

From Tiffany lamps to 1960s music concert posters, necklaces and oddities the two men put on a show that is part history lesson and part comedy act, club member Nancy Williams said. “It’s pure entertainment,” Williams said.

The show starts at 6 p.m. and appraisals are one for $5 or three for $10. Refreshments are available for a donation. This Lioness Club fundraiser is their biggest of the year. The funds raised at this event go to help out the club’s Thanksgiving and Adopt-a-Family projects during the holidays. “We sure hope everyone will come out, bring your curiosities and help support these worthy causes,” Williams said. The event is held at the Hook & Ladder Fire Company on Quaker Street and plenty of parking is available.
