By From page B3 | August 15, 2014

FOLSOM — On Saturday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., antiques enthusiasts are invited to bring family treasures and garage sale finds for informal evaluation and identification during the 17th Annual Antique Evaluation Day on Sutter Street in Folsom.

An impressive team of volunteer appraisers, covering a wide range of specialties, will offer collectors a unique opportunity to learn more about their antiques and collectibles. The appraisers draw on years of experience in providing estimates of current market value as well as a verbal identification and evaluation of pieces. This year’s team of volunteer appraisers includes:

RANDALL ABBOTT: Asian & Middle Eastern arts and antiques
MARK BAKER: Paper ephemera, post cards, correspondence and letters, vintage photos, historical documents and stamp collections
GARY COX: “Generalist” specializing in collectibles, furniture, china and political items
JEROME EVANS: Tribal art, including American Indian, African and Oceanic art
SYLVIA FITZGERALD: “Generalist” specializing in art glass, porcelains, paintings and sterling silver
ROBERT FLAHERTY: Firearms, military memorabilia and U.S. coins
MARSHALL MARTIN: Dolls, doll houses and furniture,  children’s items, clothing and antique holiday items
NICK NICHOLSON: Stringed musical instruments
ROMAN OLEYNIK: Clocks, pocket watches, watches and jewelry
EMILY SCHELL: “Generalist”
GREG TRACY: Military memorabilia and weapons.

There is no limit on the number of items that may be presented for evaluation. Photographs with dimensions of oversized items may be submitted for evaluation. Experienced volunteers ensure that collectors are promptly helped. Parking is free. Cost of evaluation is a donation of $8 per item or $35 for five items.

All proceeds from this fund raiser go to support programs of the museum. The Folsom History Museum is located at 823 Sutter St., Folsom.
