[ARCHIVED] Antique Appraiser Tom Bassett
On Saturday, February 24 at 2 pm, Tom Bassett the antique appraiser will be coming to the Columbus Library. There is no charge to attend and no pre-registration, but this year we will have those attending write their name and one item to be appraised on the signup sheet before they walk into the art gallery room. The art gallery room is larger and has better sound acoustics than the library auditorium, so we will meet down there for Tom Bassett. An attendant will help you sign in for the program and we will use the sign in list to call the attendees’ names in the order they came in. So if you need to leave before the program ends, make sure you come and sign in early so that your name will be called at the beginning of the program. We understand people have busy schedules, but you will not want to cut your time short with Tom Bassett. He is very entertaining and has so much experience and wisdom to share with us.
You don’t have to bring anything to attend, you can just watch and listen as Tom Bassett gives the history of the different items that are brought to him. You can learn what to look for and better understand the value of an item when you are yard sale or antique shopping for treasures. Tom Bassett will make it worth your while.
