AA200 - Treasures or Trinkets Class

from 135.00

This class is a dream for the eclectic collector who wants to learn how to spot a real treasure!  In the first class, participants are asked to bring in at least two items of reasonable size, either antiques or collectibles, whether visual art, jewelry, small furniture, sculptures, wooden things, ceramics, metals and silver, you name it, that they would like identified and valued.  Discussions will help you to recognize authentic items vs. reproductions, how to look for repairs, looking for signs of aging, whether real or faked, and other valuable skills.  For the second class, participants will be asked to go bargain hunting at yard or estate sales or thrift shops to find what they feel is the best bargain with the most value and/or age.  These items will be shared with the class and lively discussions will center around them.  The third class will be a class trip to local antique shops with the purpose of finding the best bargain – or just the best pieces – which will be brought to the fourth class.  The fourth class will be a discussion of the pieces found on the class trip.  The instructor will bring Identification and Price Guides to the classes for participant’s use.  No material’s fee required, but you may want to have a little cash at hand for the week 3 ‘s adventure.
