Bring Your Wares to the Appraiser Fair

Appraiser Fair

The St. Mary’s County Museum Division has scheduled the January 2020 Appraiser Fair, and is encouraging residents to bring their items for appraisal to the St. Clement’s Island Museum on Saturday, January 25, 2020.

The event will be held from 10 am to 3 pm, and the museum is located at 38370 Point Breeze Road in Colton’s Point.

The Appraiser Fair provides an opportunity for the public to learn the value of their heirlooms and how to properly care for them. Appraisers will be available to offer oral appraisal to members of the public for the following categories: fine arts, dolls, coins, jewelry, currency, and clocks. The fine arts category includes ceramics, pottery, glassware, artwork/paintings, music boxes, and small furniture pieces. Items in this category are limited to two items per person at a fee of $5 per item. Due to the popularity of this category, you may experience a longer wait time than usual. Other category fees are $5 each.

Cash and check are the only form of payment accepted.

The public is encouraged to only bring items that can be hand-carried. Items that do not fit this category will not be accepted for appraisal. Space is limited and items will be viewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Appraisals are not certified. However, one can make arrangements for a certified appraisal at a later date and time.

The event is hosted by the Friends of the St. Clement’s Island Museum and details can be found on the event Facebook page or by calling 301-769-2222.
