Annual Antique Appraisal Day April 2

Rochester-Avon Historical Society Hosts 29th Annual Antique Appraisal Day at Rochester Hills at Van Hoosen Farm, April 2.

Have you ever wondered if that necklace you bought in an antique store is worth more than what you paid for it? Or what the story behind grandpa’s coin collection is? If you have antique treasures or family heirlooms that you’ve long wondered about, bring them to the Rochester-Avon Historical Society during their 29th Annual Antique Appraisal Day on Sunday, April 2, from 12 noon until 4:00 p.m. The Society will host their appraisal day for the second year at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm located at 1005 Van Hoosen Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48316.

This year, appraisers are available to appraise cast iron toys, coins, pottery, china, collectables, furniture, guns, military items, antique weapons, dolls, teddy bears, engravings, art: oils & prints, fine & costume jewelry, Eastern art, string instruments, and much more.

Participants are asked to bring their items, or photos of larger items, to have their treasures appraised. All items are appraised at fair market value. Each participant is allowed to bring up to five (5) items.

Each appraisal costs five (5) dollars—cash only. This event is open to everyone. Proceeds benefit the Rochester-Avon Historical Society’s mission to help preserve, collect, and interpret the history of the greater Rochester area for present and future generations.
