Antique Appraiser visit set for senior club

JOHNSTOWN –The Johnstown 50 Plus Club, located in the Shirley J. Luck Senior Center, 109 E. Main St., will welcome Mark Lawson, antique appraiser, at 1:15 p.m. Thursday. Lawson will tell all about the vast experience in the antique business he has had and then offer appraisals on items that seniors bring in. So see what’s in that trunk in the attic or dust off that heirloom on the mantle and bring it in to have Lawson tell what it’s really worth. Who knows, one could be in possession of something priceless. The cost of appraisal is $10 per item, with the money going to benefit Hope House of Albany.
