Follow the road to Phelps for the “Antique Critique”, a fund raiser for the Phelps Historical Museum. Mark Moran, will reveal the stories, past lives and value of your vintage items.
Seven baskets valued at $100 - $200 each will be raffled with the drawing towards the end of the show (about 4pm).
Special raffle tickets for an original water color by famed South Twin Lake artist, Shirley Surges, will also be on sale.
