Appraisal Day at Myrtleville!

Dust off Great Aunt Gertrude's pewter set, Antiques Appraisal Day and Heritage Fair is coming up fast! We've assembled a crack-team of appraisers, and the registration forms are hot off the presses.

We have appraisers who specialize in glass, china, Brantford memorabilia, sports memorabilia, furniture, paper goods, militaria, and yes, Great Aunt Gertrude's pewter. Registration is $10.00 for one item, and $20.00 for 3. We've got a limit of 3 items per person to make sure everyone gets a chance to have their items appraised.

But we've got more than just appraisers for this Heritage Fair!
