My stuff is worth what?

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

The Heritage Heartland Homemakers (HHH) will be holding an antique appraisal fair this Saturday.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the public is welcome to attend the inaugural fair to be held at the Putnam County Fairgrounds inside the Community Building.

For $25 -- cash only, someone from Gilley's appraisal will verbally appraise one to three items. Also, two auctioneers from Christie's will be present as well as Ann Rambo who will be appraising antique jewelry.

The HHH club will also provide lunch. The menu will include homemade chicken and noodles.

Everyone is invited to the event. However, children under 10-years old are not admitted.

Proceeds will benefit A-Way Home, Putnam County Humane Shelter, The Bainbridge Reading Program, 4-H Awards, The Ronald McDonald House, service personnel abroad and others. In all, 15 charities will benefit from this event.

For more information, contact Beverly Spires at 765-246-6558.

    Yeah, they should let in all the young kids so people's antiques can be broken! I'm outraged, too!

  • $25.00 for an appraisal of 3 antiques is pretty cheap. Proceeds go to benifit charities..that is why it is cash only! So that people can't write a bad check, etc. Not allowing kids in isn't a punishment to those of us that have children, it is to keep the antiques from getting broken for goodness sakes! I have 3 children and there is no way I would take them into a room full of priceless antiques! Not bc I think they would break anything but bc they are kids and things happen. After reading the "attitude" in your comment, whodouthinkur I am sure no one will be missing you at the antique fair!

  • Such positive and perfect people in the world. I wish I were one of you. I still stand firm, no kids, no me. I DO have plenty of antiques in my home and my children as well as grandchildren can play with whatever they want. If they break it so what!!!!!! My children and grandchildren are so worth more than my antiques. And the cash only,......bad checks please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Get with the real world positive people.

  • In reality I can use a check and take it off my taxes. (As is states it going to charities).

  • Why do people in this town get so petty when someone tries to do something worthwhile and fun? Good grief.....$25 is not a lot of money and if people let their kids run wild (like they do in Walmart) I'd say 10 yrs old or under is a good place to start!
