Wanna Play 'Antiques Road Show'? Here's Your Shot

OK, Roadies, antiques dealer and "Antiques Road Show" regular Ken Farmer of Radford is returning to Roanoke's South County Library, to do appraisals--for a fee. He spoke at the dedication of the library a couple of years ago, but didn't appraise anything.

Farmer will appraise up to 40 items at South County Library starting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8. Tickets to have an item appraised are $10 and can be purchased at the first floor service desk at South County.

A picture and a description of the item must be emailed to Farmer at least one week prior to the event. Instructions for doing this are included with the purchased ticket. Appraisal ticket sales will end May 1.

Note that Farmer does not appraise coins, stamps, and currency.

 After a brief talk in the South County Auditorium on May 8, he will begin appraising the submitted objects. The event is expected to last about two hours.

General seating is limited and is available at no charge on a first-come basis. South County Library is at 6303 Merriman Road in Roanoke, across from Penn Forest Elementary School.
