Volunteer appraisers will offer collectors a unique opportunity to learn more about their family treasures during Folsom’s Out of Grandma’s Trunk Appraisal Day on Saturday, July 21.
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 to bring quilts, pre-1920 clothing, jewelry and family photos for informal evaluation and identification.
This year’s appraisers and specialties are: Dawn Licker, quilts; Linda Setnik, clothing and photos; and Oscar Lugo and Douglas Petok, jewelry. There is no limit on the number of items that may be presented for evaluation. Experienced museum volunteers ensure that collectors are promptly helped.
Event hours are 11 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 programs of the museum.
The Folsom History Museum is located at 823 Sutter St. near Decatur in the Historic District of Folsom. Parking in the Historic District will be free all day, including the city’s indoor garage at Reading and Sutter.
