Join Me At The Astor Antique Appraisal Event

Get details here!A Very Valuable Afternoon

Somewhere between your grandmother’s curio cabinet and your family artifacts, Astor’s Antique Appraisal Event on Saturday, May 5th, invites you to cart in up to three items for a professional appraisal.

Well, Astor Services for Children & Families is bringing this zany fun to the Hudson Valley.  Get on board and bring it on!  Or bring it over to The Vassar Alumnae House from 1-4pm, and participate as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains, and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.

Is it worth it?  Will you regret not selling it sooner rather than later?  We live in an age where information is at our fingertips and on Saturday you can have your treasures evaluated instantly from our distinguished panel of appraisers.

Of course it is worth it! Your investment in this event will go towards the Jan Weido Memorial Bike Path for Rhinebeck Residential Programs.  Jan was an asset and important figure to Astor in many ways.  He was the head of Recreation for the Residential Programs and an Astor employee for 25 years. Jan embodied the core values of Astor and was always striving to do what was best for the kids.
