Antique and Art Appraisal Event in Eaton May 6, 2023

The Eaton Historical Society along with Lone Tree Antiques & Fine Art is hosting an antique and art fundraising appraisal event in Eaton on May 6, 2023 from 10-12 and 1-4.  

Attendees will learn about the history and fair market value of their items from an expert appraiser during the event, similar to the popular “Antiques Roadshow” program on PBS. 

Daniel Geary, owner of Lone Tree Antiques and Fine Art, has 30 years of experience as an appraiser educating the public about the value of their art and antiques. Geary has worked with organizations across Colorado and Wyoming to conduct more than 50 local antique appraisal events. 

“It’s our goal to help people understand the value of their antiques,” Geary said. “Once you know what something is worth, you can make an informed decision about what to do with it – like whether it needs to be insured or if it’s something you should hand down to your kids.” 

Suggested items for appraisal include but are not limited to: art, jewelry, furniture, Native American artifacts, guitars, musical instruments, books, photos, civil war memorabilia, antique firearms and weapons, toys, pottery, western history, cowboy collectibles, and historical Americana. 

Appraisals will take place at the A.J. Eaton Home and Carriage House Museum, 207 Elm Avenue in Eaton, Colo. 

Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted. There is a limit of three items per 15-minute appointment. There is a $5.00 per item donation required to benefit the Historical Society. 

Appointments can be scheduled by calling Terrie James at 847-707-5276.
