Antique Appraisal Event – Grayson Sikes, Appraiser
Tuesday, March 22, 2016, 3 pm – 7 pm
The Friends of the Daviess County Public Library proudly sponsor an Antiques Appraisal Event at the library on the first floor from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. This event is free to the public but does require advanced registration by phone or in person as tickets will be limited. To register for the event contact the Daviess County Public Library at 270-684-0211 Ext. 4.
Each person is limited to 1 small to medium-sized item for appraisal. The tickets will be reserved on a first come first-serve basis as there will be a limit of 50 total slots for this event. All ticket holders will be asked to arrive for their time slot at least 5 minutes in advance and to remember that patience is appreciated as individual sessions could go longer than normal and there may be a wait just like on the Antiques Roadshow. If a ticket holder fails to show at the appropriate time then they may lose their time slot with the appraiser. The cut-off time for registration will be Sunday, March 20th, 2016 and/or once all the time slots are filled.
On the day of the event, all attendees will stop at the sign-in table in the front foyer of the library to retrieve their ticket for their assigned time and then will be shown to the appraisal area.
