Antiques Appraisal at the Grand Army Hall

Come one, come all with those treasures you have been dusting forever. Find out what they are really worth at the Grand Army Hall as the Scituate Historical Society provides you with an opportunity to have them appraised.

We are excited about our new and continuing partnership with the The Plymouth Exchange and Peter Smith. For all consignments from the event and thereafter a 20% donation will return to The Scituate Historical Society. Just mention the Society when visiting the Exchange. What a great way to support the ongoing projects of the society to preserve Scituate’s rich history. A dream team has been assembled representing all categories of antiques. Please like and share this post with family and friends. It is going to be a great day.
