Heirloom Appraisals – By Appointment Only

May 16 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

It is our pleasure to present Judith Martin ISA CAPP and Kate Martin ISA AM for an Heirloom Evaluation Day on Sunday, May 16. Judith and Kate are experts at identifying and evaluating heirloom pieces. Please note that they do not appraise jewelry, watches, coins, or stamps. They will be able to inspect up to three items per person by appointment. Oversized items, such as furniture, can be evaluated through clear photographs of each item.

The number of appointments are limited and are only available to book online.

During each appointment, the appraisers will:

  1. Identify the item(s).
  2. Supply a short history of the item and its maker.
  3. Estimate the item's market (selling) value.

This information will be given for the owner's own personal knowledge. 

Judith and Kate can evaluate a maximum of 3 items per 15-minute appointment. The cost is $25 per item to be evaluated and you will pay for each item at the time you book your appointment. Please ensure you are at the store and in our Gift Gallery (a/k/a candle room) at least 5 minutes prior to your appointment time.

100% of net proceeds will be donated to the Geneva Community Chest, a proud supporter of local charities for over 50 years.

If you have any questions about this event, please send them to [email protected]
