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 fourth annual Lambs Farm Antiques Appraisal Breakfast on Tuesday, May 20 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.

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.
