Antiques Appraisal Breakfast

Curious about the worth of an inherited or treasured item in your home?

Pick out one item and join us for the Fifth Annual Lambs Farm Antiques Appraisal Breakfast on Tuesday, May 19 at 9:30 a.m. Tickets include a delicious breakfast, and a brief history on the antique market and items by renowned appraiser Karl Gates.

“This was educational and enjoyable. Mr. Gates was a fun speaker and so knowledgeable.”

Licensed appraiser Karl Gates attended both the Art Institute of Chicago and American Academy of Art and has professionally run over 300 appraisal fairs. He also has taught 30 years of antiques/collectibles classes and seminars, was a United States Treasury Department appraiser for three years, and ran Good Bye Good Buys Estate Sales for 30 years.

Each appraisal during the breakfast generally consists of the history behind the item, the age, the value, and possibly the material and the maker.

 “Every piece I see has a story beyond its value.  I find people a good way to connect with its past,” said Gates.
