Want to know what that family heirloom is worth? Or maybe you have a yard sale purchase that you think is valuable? Bring your item to the District One EMS Building, 316 West Commercial Street in Mazomanie on Saturday, January 26 from 1-4 pm. Antique appraisal expert Mark Moran will be on hand to appraise your items. The event is hosted by the Friends of the Mazomanie Free Library and the Friends of the Black Earth Public Library. Preregistration is required; the cost to appraise an item is $5. Register in person at either library or by phone by calling either the Mazomanie Free Library (608-795-2104) or the Black Earth Public Library (608-767-4905). Mr. Moran's comments during his appraisals are always interesting and entertaining and spectators are welcome. A partial listing of items acceptable for appraisal include fine art, furniture, ceramics, glassware, vintage photographs, advertising, folk art, toys, clocks, musical instruments, and sports memorabilia. Unacceptable items include all weapons, traps, Nazi memorabilia, coins and paper money, fine jewelry, and Beanie Babies. Mr. Moran has a wealth of experience appraising antiques and collectibles.
