Church invites hidden treasures

MANATEE — A local church is having an antiques appraisal show and inviting residents to dust off household relics, and suspected treasures, and bring them in for an appraisal.

First United Methodist Church of Palmetto is hosting the event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 330 11th Ave. W.

The appraisal will feature Daniel Buck Soules and associates who will appraise items for a donation of $10 or three items for $25.

Soules has been involved in the sales of antiques and fine arts for more than 30 years and has appeared as an appraiser of decorative arts, silver and collectibles since 1999 on PBS’s “Antiques Roadshow.”

The event will take place in conjunction with the church’s pancake breakfast.

Appointments are suggested. Call 722-1812 during regular business hours.
