FOLSOM — On Saturday, May 21, antiques enthusiasts are invited to bring family treasures and garage sale finds for informal evaluation and identification at Treasures From Grandma’s Trunk: Antique Evaluations on Sutter Street in Folsom.

An impressive team of  volunteer appraisers will offer collectors a unique opportunity to learn more about their antiques and collectibles. Appraisers will draw on years of experience in providing an estimate of current market value as well as a verbal identification and evaluation of pieces. Collectors are invited to bring their quilts, vintage clothing and textiles, fine and heirloom jewelry, china and porcelain.

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 museum volunteers ensure that collectors are promptly helped. Event hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost of evaluation is a donation of $8 per item or $35 for five items.

All proceeds from this fundraiser go to support museum programs.

The Folsom History Museum is located at 823 Sutter St. near Decatur. Parking in the Historic District will be free all day, including at the city’s indoor garage at Reading and Sutter. For additional information contact the Folsom History Museum at (916) 985-2707 or e-mail at info@Folsom History Museum.org.
