The Pocatello Elks Lodge #674, 410 S. Main St., will be hosting an antique appraisal event. Do you have “Trash or Treasure” with antiques or family heirlooms you have on hand? This event will coincide with the January First Friday Art Walk on Friday. Local area antique dealers will be at the Lodge to appraise your small or medium-sized antiques.
These experienced dealers have over a collected 80 years of antiquing experience, and are affiliated with several antique stores in Pocatello and Idaho Falls. This event is for appraisals only. There will be no buying or selling of items. A charge of $4.00 will enable you to bring up to 3 items to be appraised. Please limit your items to only three to allow others to speak to the appraisers.
From the back parking lot, go down the stairs to the dining room. A new electrical chair has been installed for those needing assistance. The appraisals go from 5:00 to 7:30. Dinner may be purchased from the Lodge kitchen and selections include beef, fish and chicken. All proceeds for this event go to the many Elks charities that benefit our community youth and veterans.
