Antiques & Collectibles: What’s Hot and What’s Not

Monday, October 15, 2018 Antiques & Collectibles: What’s Hot and What’s Not


Phoenixville Public Library will host an antique and collectible information and appraisal event, “Antiques & Collectibles: What’s Hot and What’s Not” on Monday, October 15 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. Leon Castner of National Appraisal Consultants and Brent Souder of Alderfer Auction will be the presenters. Is that item worth saving or just throwing away? Whether or not you’re downsizing, find out what you’ve got and how much it could be worth. A short video presentation will begin the evening, with our hosts revealing what types of items are not selling well and what items are surprising them. Attendees may also bring an item or two for a free evaluation by our experts in a theater-type presentation. This is a fun filled evening for all ages with lots of charming stories, educational tidbits, and wise advice. You may also discover the next million-dollar item — and it could be yours!
