Antiques Appraisal Fair
A recap of the 2016 Appraisal Fair:
On a cold Sunday in February 2014 folks found their way into the cozy warm Marshall House for the Chocolate Festival and Antiques Appraisal Fair, or just to poke around the museum at their leisure. Quite a few people sat in the audience, a la Antiques Road Show, and watched as the appraisers did their magic!
Many wonderful things came through, including a heavily carved polychrome decorated walking stick made in the early 20th century by a Woodstock man for his sweetheart, later his wife, which was declared to be "the best he's ever seen" by volunteer appraiser Hoyle Laughlin, of Laughlin Auctions.
Keep your eyes open for the date of the next antiques appraisal fair and chocolate festival to be held at the Woodstock Museum in 2018!!
