Any fans of the “Antique Road Show” will enjoy getting a taste of local and live antique appraisals at the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery’s 16th annual Collectible or Curiosity? event on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015, from 9am to 5pm. From now up through the event day, those interested in receiving a verbal appraisal on their antiques can register up to three items.

“We have had some interesting items come through over the years,” said Amy Basinger, events & marketing coordinator for M&G. “You never know what you are going to see; we have had everything from a Tiffany fork that had belonged to a Titanic survivor to a set of dueling pistols from the War of 1812.”
