Upshur Appraisal Fair in Gilmer

Saturday, February 18, 2012 - 10:22pm

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.
