Their specialties include antique tools, military items, art, books, cameras, clocks, jewelry, antique dolls, Hummel figurines, and other antiques and collectibles.

Tickets for each appraisal will be $5 and will be issued for specific, one-hour time periods. Tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be available at the door. No one will be admitted without an appraisal ticket.
