Haul out those treasures youÕve always wondered about and bring them to the Highline Historical SocietyÕs upcoming antiques appraisal and artifact identification day. On Saturday, September 20, from 10:30 AM Ð 4 PM, the Historical Society will be at the Burien Community Center with professional appraiser Chris Foss and Burke Museum archaeologists.
For $15 per item (reduced rate of $10 per item for Highline Historical Society members), Foss will give a verbal appraisal of your antique Ð bring a note pad to write down the information he provides. There will be a limit of four items per person. Jewelry, large furniture, and firearms will not be appraised.
And if you would like to bring in an interesting old bone, stone, or other relic, members of the Burke MuseumÕs archaeology department will be available from 10:30 AM Ð 3 PM to identify cultural objects found in the region. There is no fee for this service, but the limit is three items. No appraisals will be given.
