For over two decades the Rochester-Avon Historical Society has hosted one of the most popular events in the Rochester area – Antique Appraisal Day. Similar to the PBS’s “Antique Roadshow”, Antique Appraisal Day gives attendees the opportunity to learn more about their antique or vintage items. Whether or not an antique is worth money or simply a pretty knickknack, attending the Antique Appraisal Day is always a fun and entertaining event.

Local antiques experts and appraisers will be available to appraise a myriad of antique items including, books, manuscripts, first editions, coins, clocks, glass, pottery, collectibles, china, lighting, lamps, furniture, military items, antique weapons, dolls and related items, teddy bears, costume & fine jewelry, Eastern Art, engravings, needlepoint, art (oils, prints, pastels), traditional toys (Hot Wheels, action figures, electric trains, board games) and, musical instruments (violin, cello, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, electric and acoustic guitars).

For larger items that cannot be transported, attendees are encouraged to bring photographs showing the piece to be appraised and any details about the item that may be helpful to the appraiser.
