A visit to New Harmony’s antique shops often prompts questions about things our customers have at home. People ask,
“What is grandma’s heirloom quilt worth?”
“What’s that weird looking wood plane dad always kept in his shop?”
“Are my antique glass and crockery pieces worth something now?”
Now you don’t have to wonder! Visit The New Harmony Antique Show this weekend, June 11 & 12, and bring your prized possessions for our professional appraiser to review. Certified appraiser George Higby, CAGA visits our town to help us value, understand and appreciate our family heirlooms and fun collectibles.
Known to YouTuber viewers as “The Antique Nomad”, Mr. Higby travels coast to coast, and
brings his 30 years of experience in the antique and vintage business to our event. He’ll be here to see our finds and help us interpret their age, origins and other hallmarks of value, then give a verbal estimate of how much they might bring if put out for sale.
Attendees are invited to bring as many items as they wish to have appraised at the cost of five dollars per item; in the event of a large turnout, you may have to take turns after the first two items are seen. Mr. Higby will review any item you wish to bring, but is not a gemologist or art authenticator.
The appraisal fair will take place inside the Ribeyre Gym Event Center both days of the antique show.
Show hours are 9am-5pm Saturday and 9am-4pm Sunday. More info regarding New
Harmony and other events this weekend at this website (VisitNewHarmony.com).
