BCHS Annual Antique Appraisal Day Scheduled

On Sunday November 18, 2018 from Noon to 3 p.m. the Bradford County Historical Society will be hosting an Antique Appraisal Day. We all have items that have been handed down over the years things they we tuck away in a safe place and look at occasionally and wonder what this item might be worth. The Antique Appraisal Day will give you the opportunity to have a professional examine your item and give you the good or bad news of the value of the item.

Mr. Bullock appraised over 70 items at the 2017 event.

This event will be held in the great room of the Bradford County Museum located at 109 Pine Street in Towanda, PA. The appraiser for the day will be long time local antique dealer Chuck Bullock. Mr. Bullock was born and raised on his family farm in Auburn Township in Susquehanna County, PA and after attending C.C.B.I in Syracuse and Bucknell University he had a long career in banking. Mr. Bullock owns Sanford and Sons Antiques in Wyalusing the shop noted for its very colorful lawn ornaments along Route 6. Mr. Bullock also conducts on site estate sales in Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties.

The appraisal is open to the public and there will be a charge of $3 per item for Historical Society members and $ 5 per item for nonmembers.

The museum will also be open for tours and the gift shop will be open for any persons interested in purchasing local history books or you may want to buy a 2019 society membership for that hard to buy for person on your Holiday giving list. Memberships include the society publication THE SETTLER a magazine of local history and genealogy four times a year.

So, dig out that item you have stored away dust it off and bring it to the Bradford County Museum on November 18 for what will surely be a fun filled and interesting afternoon. We will be unable to allow fire arms at the appraisal.
