Antique Sale and Appraisal Faire
Thanks to everyone who came to our Antique Sale and Appraisal Faire last month. The event was a big success, and we are definitely consider redoing the event in the future. Thanks especially go to our volunteers who kept things running so smoothly throughout the day.
Thanks to Michaan's Auctions whose appraisers helped evaluate the many family heirlooms that the visitors brought for appraisal. Sorry to those who weren't able to get a reservation; interest was higher than we initially anticipated.
Thanks to the Drop In Blue Grass Band for providing musical entertainment. And thanks to the Lace Museum for demonstrating lace making all afternoon.
