Appraisal event was priceless
To the editor:
The students, patients and staff at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in Greenfield wish to express their appreciation of all who supported the “What’s-It-Worth” appraisal fair at Dodge Farm Antiques in Peterborough on Nov. 16. The event attracted about 50 people from across the region and raised $426 to support Crotched Mountain’s educational and rehabilitative programs serving children and adults with disabilities.
We thank all who brought their treasures for scrutiny by expert appraisers Joe Pappas and John Saverese from The Gallery at Knotty Pines in Swanzey. These professionals uncovered several “show-stoppers” like a document signed by President Lincoln and a famille noir Chinese vase valued in the $2,000 and $8,000 ranges, respectively. Thank you Joe and John for donating your services in support of Crotched Mountain.
We are especially grateful to Hillary Holian of Dodge Farm Antiques who proposed and planned a top-notch event, and who turned her beautiful store upside down to make space for everyone. Hillary and her assistant, Elice, were gracious hosts to the crowds that filled the store throughout the event.
