PETERBOROUGH — Dodge Farm Antiques of Peterborough is hosting a “What’s it Worth?” event on Saturday to benefit Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in Greenfield.
The event is planned for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the antique shop at 7 School St.Owner Hillary Holian, who opened Dodge Farm Antiques in April, is encouraging people to “bring in your early ceramics, art glass, tapestries, wooden primitive items, even toys and dolls and other collectibles.”
Expert appraisers John Pappas, owner, appraiser and auctioneer at The Gallery at Knotty Pine, and Joe Saverese, assistant auctioneer and appraiser, will be on hand to give professional appraisals on any treasure and curiosity guests bring in for $5, or $12 for three items.It’s planned to be a fun event for a good cause, she said. “When I was growing up I heard about Dodge Farm from my grandfather, who grew up in Dodge Farm in Bennington,” she said.
Her grandfather was a game warden and would tell her about taking children who lived at Crocheted Mountain out for day trips.
“I heard about Crotched Mountain all my life and now I’m local and they’re local and it kind of worked out,” she said.
