The Antiques Appraisal Event earlier this season was a successful as we hoped it would be!
We had over forty people come to the event to get their items looked at by Caroline French, of Caroline French antiques. Items ranged from books to glassware, ceramics, small collectables and musical instruments, all the way to fine art. One of the most interesting items was a small Dutch oil painting a local couple brought in. I was able to talk with several people about the museum collection and we were able to secure a few new members.
The Society wants to thank the Farmington Woman’s Club and Happiness Tree Decor for sponsoring and we want to thank all the volunteers who helped with the event and making the delicious home baked food for sale. The Society would also like to thank the Friends of Farmington for allowing us to advertise in their display window when another group didn’t need to use it. It looks like we will have this event again in the future, so keep a lookout in spring for an announcement for the event. Again, we thank the community for supporting our mission and supporting our organization.
