Do you have treasures buried in your attic? Have you ever wondered how much that watch from your great-grandmother is worth?
Gather your family heirlooms and bring them to Osceola History’s second annual Antiques and Appraisal Fair on June 27, 2020, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Osceola County Welcome Center & History Museum. The event will coincide with the opening of the new “Tools of the Trade” special exhibit. The Welcome Center and History Museum is located at 4155 W. Vine Street in Kissimmee.
The Osceola History staff is taking precautions to provide a safe environment for museum visitors. Guests are encouraged to practice social distancing and wear face coverings while in the museum.
Professional antiques dealers will be available to give verbal appraisals. These appraisals are meant to give a general idea of the worth of an item and are not intended for insurance or resale purposes. In conjunction with the “Tools of the Trade” exhibit in the museum, the appraisal fair will include an appraiser who specializes in old tools.
Proceeds from the event benefit Osceola History’s mission to collect and preserve the county’s history and to provide educational and recreational activities that highlight the area’s cultural and natural heritage.
A staff member will be available at the appraisal fair to discuss possible donations of items to the Osceola History’s collection.
Appraisal fair tickets are $10 for one appraised item, $15 for two items, or $20 for three items. Admission to the museum is free. People buying tickets in advance will receive a scheduled appointment to avoid too many guests in the museum at one time.
Tickets may also be purchased at the Osceola County Welcome Center & History Museum.
