Local art and antique appraiser Don Butkovich will be at the Dennos Museum Center to verbally appraise your hidden treasures. Each person can bring one item per session at a fee of $10. Sessions are up to 15 minutes each. Each additional item requires registration for a separate session at an extra $10 fee. All proceeds support the Museum's education programming fund.
