Antique Appraisal Event

The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum will host its sixth annual Antique Appraisal Day from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the museum, 6422 Main St., Union. Reserve a 10-minute slot for your treasure by calling the museum at 815-923-2267.

Appraisal categories include: China/glassware, art, toys, sports cards/memorabilia, jewelry, dolls, stamps, books and general antiques that includes textiles, photos and documents. Items must be portable enough for attendees to carry unassisted.

Advance registration is advised. It begins Thursday, Feb. 1, and runs through Tuesday, Feb. 20. The cost is $7 for each object with a maximum of three appraisals per person. Individual museum admission is included with a paid registration. Registration payment can be made with a credit card or check. Check payments must be received within one week of making your reservation, otherwise your time will become available for other appraisals.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your reserved time to check in and be seated in the appraiser's area.

Walk-in appraisals on Feb. 24 will cost $9 per object and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis – pending time and scheduling constraints. Spectators are encouraged to watch the action. Regular museum admission will apply: $5 for adults, $3 for seniors & students, $12 for families.

There is free admission to the museum, as always, for society members. Thanks to the generosity of our appraisers, all proceeds benefit the nonprofit historical society. Thanks to the generosity of our appraisers, all proceeds benefit the nonprofit historical society.
