Lyndhurst Historical Society to Hold Appraisal Fair - May 2, 2015

Lyndhurst Historical Society to Hold Appraisal Fair
May 2, 2015

Area residents are encouraged to look through their garages, search the boxes in their basements, and check out those dusty trunks in their attics. The treasures they find can now be appraised when the Lyndhurst Historical Society hosts its Antiques Roadshow-Style Appraisal Fair on Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm at the Lyndhurst Senior Center, located at 250 Cleveland Avenue in Lyndhurst.

Jon Felz, senior vice president, RZM Fine Arts & Antiques, Inc., will be on-hand to provide an informal appraisal of the many items that are expected to appear. Felz, who has more than 15 years of experience as an appraiser, is a certified appraiser and member of the New England Appraisers Association and is a member of the Daguerreian Society. Felz is an auctioneer who conducts monthly auctions around New Jersey and is also a retired New York City police officer, formerly assigned to the Antiques and Art Fraud Squad.

“We’re excited to hold this event. It benefits the Lyndhurst Historical Society, which preserves the Little Red Schoolhouse Museum,” said Joan Waltman, vice president, Lyndhurst Historical Society. “Plus, it’s always interesting to find out a little more about something you've had around the house for a while.”

Advance registration is required by April 22. A reservation is $15 and includes the appraisal of two items only. Light refreshments will be served. For more information and to make a reservation, call Lois Hussey at 201-935-7575 or email Checks must be received no later than May 1, payable to the Lyndhurst Historical Society at PO Box 135, Lyndhurst, NJ 07071.
