The event will feature 10 certified appraisers that will assess the value of antique treasures brought in by the public. A fee of $5 will be charged per piece to be appraised. Also featured at the event will be local and regional antique shops displaying and selling their wares throughout the day, as well as local museums and historical attractions.
New to the Appraisal Fair will be a “Preview Party” on Feb. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. for those that would like to purchase their treasures early. The new addition will feature live entertainment, a silent auction, light hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to shop the vendors early for that special item. Admission will be $10 per person. Appraisers will be available as well as more than 40 antique dealers.
Admission on Saturday is free. The event is a project of the Tourism Department of the Greene County Partnership and is sponsored by the Greeneville City School System.
