At the first KLRU Appraisal Fair, over 500 fans and supporters of public television braved the stormy weather to come to the KLRU-TV studios to have their treasured antiques and collectibles appraised by volunteer appraisers and antiques dealers from Austin.
For a gift of $120 to the station, donors could bring up to three items to be appraised – items included jewelry, furniture, paintings, clocks, glassware, dolls, quilts, and much more. There were a lot of surprises throughout the day and we captured some truly special items on video.
We want to share our videos and photos from the event with you all, so for the next couple of Mondays we’ll post something new from the day. We also want to thank everyone who donated to participate in the event and all of the appraisers who volunteered their time!
Visit www.klrusupport.org/appraisalfair for a complete listing of the appraisers who made the day possible.
The KLRU Appraisal Fair will return for its second year in 2012, so stay tuned to KLRU for your chance to attend!
