“Faire” Appraisal Event Offers Identification and Evaluation of Antiques & Collectibles

See the highlights of last year’s event here!

Reading, PA – Antique aficionados are invited once again to uncover their hidden treasures by attending A “Faire” Appraisal at Wyomissing Public Library on Sunday, April 15th from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm.  Building on two year’s of successful events, industry professionals will be on site to view and discuss antiques, yard sale finds, and collectibles owned by individuals in Berks County.

An all-star team of guest appraisers including the host of BCTV’s “All That Stuff” Mr. Bill Howze, Mr. Brett Oslon, and Mr. Phil Wesel are qualified to assess a wide assortment of items and encourage guests to bring antiques or collectibles including (but not limited to) toys, coins, glassware, jewelry, art, and furniture.

Participants may have two items evaluated for $20 and additional items are $5/each.  The BCTV film crew will be on site to capture the day’s most interesting conversations which will be compiled into a feature program.  Spectators are welcome at no charge!

George M. Meiser IX, Berks County historian and event committee member says, “A Faire Appraisal Day promises to satisfy curiosity, entertain, educate, and benefit BCTV, a winning four-some!” 

Wyomissing Public Library is located at 9 Reading Boulevard, in Wyomissing. Evaluations will be conducted on a first come, first serve basis at the availability of the appraisers.  No registration required, no reservations accepted. All proceeds benefit BCTV.
