Upshur Appraisal Fair in Gilmer
Doors opened at ten this morning, and people were already arriving with their antiques and family heirlooms.
Appraisals were ten-dollars an item, and twenty dollars for three.
All of the money went toward keeping the Historic Upshur Museum up-to-date.
All the appraisers were volunteers, and each one had specific expertise in either jewelry, antiques, and even firearms.
There were also exhibits lining the walls, from pottery making, to a man who made pens, out of bullets.
And everyone involved with today's event expressed how important it is for the community to keep the museum up and running.
