“What is it worth?”

Do you have an old object, an antique or a family heirloom that you would like to know more about? We can have a solution for you.

The Champaign County Historical Museum is holding an antiques expert fair between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19.

The event is one of two fundraisers that help support the museum’s operations. Freshwater Farms of Ohio and the Historical Society are sponsoring this event.

Advance tickets cost $ 20 each and are available at local Urbana banks, the Chamber of Commerce, and the museum located at 809 East Lawn Ave., Urbana. Tickets can also be purchased on the night of the event for $ 25 each.

For the entrance fee, guests will receive a verbal review for an article from one of the reviewers. (Current CCHS members can have two items assessed). In addition, there will be a complementary wine and cheese bistro hosted by Freshwater Farms of Ohio.

There will be four evaluators at the event. The first assessor highlighted is Greg Shipley.

Shipley has been an avid collector of Native American and Native American artifacts for over 50 years. He is an avid amateur archaeologist and his favorite part of the collection is the artefact hunt in the field. Shipley looks forward to the appraisal fair and helps you find out what your prized possession is worth.

The earliest American artefacts include relics from the Colonial Era through the Federal Era (1620-1820). Native American artifacts include stone and flint arrowheads and cutting tools, trade goods, tomahawks, beads, and wampums.

The second rater highlighted is Dan Fawcett of Cable. Fawcett has been a collector, trader, gatherer and subject matter expert on antiques and collectibles for over 40 years. He is well known to most dealers in the area, and his opinion on antiques is frequently requested by the Ohio History Connection. He has a lifetime of knowledge of artifacts from Logan, Clark, and Champaign County. Fawcett looks forward to the appraisal fair and helps you find out what your precious asset is worth.

The other evaluators will be presented in a future article.

The Historical Museum hopes that you will participate in this event and support our operations.
