Winslow Antiques Appraisal Fair

OTM-WinAntAppFair-05-06-17If you’re ever wondered about that old family heirloom, bring it to the Winslow Antiques Appraisal Fair! The 2017 Fair took place on Saturday, May 6, from 10 am to 4 pm at Snowdrift Art Space. Sean Morton of Morton Appraisals in Scottsdale brought his expertise back to Winslow so residents could have their historic items identified and appraised. Participants scheduled their one-on-one appointments with Morton by calling OTM at 928-289-5861 by Thursday, May 4. The charge for the first appraised item was $15 and for the second item was $5. The Winslow Antiques Appraisal Fair was presented as a service to the community; the event was not a fundraiser and the charge was only to cover costs. See you there in 2018!
