News-Antique.com - Sep 18,2009 - Kaminski Auctions, one of Massachusetts’ premier antiques and fine art auction houses, announces a major appraisal event October 2-3, 2009.

Kaminski Auctions appraisal events give attendees the opportunity to determine the value of their possessions. Kaminski’s knowledgeable staff can appraise almost any item, including fine art, antiques, collectibles, furniture, jewelry and more. For larger items, such as furniture, the staff is able to appraise from photographs.
As part of a continuing commitment to local community organizations, Kaminski donates all proceeds garnered from appraisal fees to the benefiting organization. An appraisal fee of $5 per item will be charged with no limit to the number of items appraised. Drop-ins are welcome and no appointments are necessary.
The American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts has held its Charter since May 20, 1933. A part of the American Red Cross, the country’s largest humanitarian organization, the Chapter provides relief to victims of disasters and helps to prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
“Our appraisal events present an opportunity to learn the nature of family heirlooms, antique shop finds and any curiosities lying around the house,” comments Frank Kaminski, owner of Kaminski Auctions. “In addition to special appraisal events like this one, we offer our services on an individual basis and host weekly ‘Free Appraisal Tuesdays’ at our office.”
