The Sayre Historical Society will be hosting its popular antique appraisal day this year on August 7. Barbara Kotasek will be joining the society again this year to dazzle the attendees with her vast knowledge of objects from time gone by. Kotasek and her son Chris are experts in the antique field and are very entertaining as they describe and value the treasures brought in by the audience.
This year the society is adding a second feature to the day. After the appraisals are completed there will be a “Trunk and Treasure” auction in the parking lot. The society will be taking reservations from 20 people who wish to park their car and participate in an auction that will be coordinated by Kotasek’s son Chris. Each car will be allowed to have 10 items that are of historic interest in the trunk of the car and Chris will go from car to car and auction off the items. To sign up for a space in the auction please visit the Sayre Historical Society website sayrehistoricalsociety.org.
The fee to enter a car for the trunk auction will be $15 for a member and $20 for a nonmember. Reservations for the trunk auction must be in by August 2, 2021.
The antique appraisal fee will be $3 per item for society members and $5 per item for nonmembers. You will be assigned numbers when you register. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m.
The appraisals will begin promptly at 10 a.m. and the trunk auction will follow.
Plan on joining the Sayre Historical Society on the lawn of the museum Saturday August 7, for what is always a fun and entertaining program. There will be a tent for the appraisal program.
