FOLSOM — On Saturday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., antiques enthusiasts are invited to bring family treasures and garage sale finds for informal evaluation and identification during the 17th annual Antique Evaluation Day on Sutter Street in Folsom.

An impressive team of volunteer appraisers, covering a wide range of specialties, will offer collectors a unique opportunity to learn more about their antiques and collectibles.

Gary Cox: “Generalist” specializing in Collectibles, Furniture, China & Political Items

There is no limit on the number of items that may be presented for evaluation. Photographs with dimensions of oversized items may be submitted for evaluation. Experienced volunteers ensure that collectors are promptly helped. Parking is free. Cost of evaluation is a donation of $8 per item or $35 for five items. All proceeds from this fund raiser go to support programs of the museum.
