Event description

Description

Is it “trash or treasure” in that attic, closet or barn? Find out at a special one-day-only event, “Trash OR Treasure -- “What’s in Your Attic?,” Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Historic Train Depot, 60 E. Broad St. in downtown Newnan, brought to you by Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. Dig out and dust off family heirlooms or curious, eccentric to find out their value, history and whether items are indeed “trash or treasure!”
One item may be submitted for every entry ticket purchased at $25. There is no limit on the number of entry tickets per person. Those submitting items for review and appraisal must send advance descriptions and photo before the July 1 deadline for entries. Purchase tickets online at Eventbrite.com and request an entry form for your item by email at events@newnancowetahistoricalsociety.com (confirmation of ticket purchase will be made). You may also stop by the NCHS office at McRitchie-Hollis Museum, 74 Jackson St. to pay by cash, check or charge. For more information see our website at newnancowetahistoricalsociety.com or our Facebook page link to the event page or call us at 770-251-0207.
Once an entry is submitted, the requested form will be sent to the entrant for completion. The advance entry form requires a photo, description and any known information about the item(s) being submitted. Entrants will physically bring items to the event being held at the Historic Train Depot the day of the event, July 15. NCHS hopes to have about 75 entries for appraisal. The value of entry items will be revealed at the Trash OR Treasure event.
Hear brief lectures from appraisers and specialists on popular collection items such as art, dolls, jewelry, furniture, books, textiles, comics and toys.
No curious objects in the house that you need appraised? No worries! A $5 ticket is available for those who would like to attend the event without submitting an entry. Spend as much time as you like perusing the items submitted, catching lecture sessions or networking with fellow collectors. Enjoy delicious offerings available for purchase from food vendors at the event. Non-entry tickets will be available up to and throughout the day of the event.
All proceeds from Trash OR Treasure goes toward NCHS sponsored programs being held monthly at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum, the Historic Train Depot and other locations in and around downtown Newnan.
