Antiques Advice during the Funkyard Festival

Perhaps you already own some nifty vintage lighting or lamps?  Would you like to know more about when they were made, or the stories they might hold?

On October 6th during the Funkyard Festival, you can bring in your vintage items (or a picture) to learn more about them! Presented by Chris Melendez of Community Forklift, and appraiser Jackie Gray.

In addition to the Antiques Advice table, the festival will include live funk music, a Picker’s Paradise, restoration & salvage demos, a secondhand clothing pop-up, preservation experts, and family fun.  So mark your calendar, invite your friends, and let’s get funky!
