Ankeny, Iowa (September 3, 2014) –– More than 40 residents and community members sorted “trash from treasure” at Vintage Hills at Prairie Trail retirement community’s Antique Appraisal Fair on August 28.
Suzanne Jones is a Des Moines-based certified appraiser and tag sale expert. Jones guided event attendees through the history of their collectibles and advised whether or not the antiques should be sold, insured or held onto for sentimental value.
“This event was not only fun, it was also a great learning experience for our guests,” said Dawn Ethofer, Executive Director at Vintage Hills at Prairie Trail. “It was so neat to hear the back story behind these decorations and childhood toys that have been around for decades.”
