HR Museum hosts Appraisal Fair June 25

June 18, 2005

The Hood River County Museum will bring back its Appraisal Fair June 25, from 1-5 p.m. This will be the fourth year for the fair.

This year’s appraisers are Sandra Millius and Jeff Motsinger, co-owners of Millius Estate Services in Portland. Millius is an expert appraiser of personal property including antiques, decorative arts and furnishing. She is currently an instructor at Portland Community College teaching “Antiques and Collectibles” and “Collective Glassware.” Both Millius and Motsinger are members of the International Society of Appraisers.

Only 15 reservations will be taken for each hour of the fair, so those interested should call in early to schedule a time. Appraisals are limited to one item per person and no firearms or precious stones will be appraised.

As a special feature, a microphone will be used to explain each item as it is appraised. The public is welcome to come and watch the experts appraise the items.

While this service is being provided free of charge by the Hood River County Historical Museum and the Hood River County Historical Society, a suggested donation of $5 would be appreciated to help defer costs associated with the planning of this event. Donations to the museum are tax-deductible.

Appraisals provided during the fair are for fun and are not intended to be used to legal purposes.

For further information or to make reservations, call Connie at the museum office, (541) 386-6772 or e-mail
