COLUMBIA — In flea markets, antique shops, tag sales — even Great Aunt Lillian’s attic — you’ve found a treasure or unique item that you want to know more about. Is it worth pennies or a fortune, and how do you find out?

Curious guests will have their chance to find out about all kinds of heirlooms and artifacts at the South Carolina State Museum during the Museum Road Show — Winter Edition on Saturday, Jan. 12.

Inspired by PBS’ “Antiques Road Show,” this State Museum signature event will offer informal verbal appraisals of a variety of objects from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (last ticket sold at 3:30 p.m.).

As in past events, experts will be available in the fields of fine art, silver, pottery, furniture, books, jewelry, textiles and dolls, as well as war artifacts ranging from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars to World War II. Crawford Conservation Inc. will give tips on how owners can preserve and care for their priceless artifacts.

Tickets are per item evaluated and non-refundable: $20 for the first item ($15 for museum members), $30 for two items ($25 members), $35 for three items ($30 members) and $40 for four items ($35 members). There is a limit of four items per person.

For more information, call 803-898-4952 or email publicprograms@scmuseum.org. To pre-register, call 803-898-4999 or visit scmuseum.org.
