Come to our Appraisal Fair July 26!

What’s it worth?

If you’re an Antiques Roadshow addict or Kentucky Collectibles junkie, you know that moment of the big reveal, the price tag, can be a thrilling moment in television history — or a dose of reality when a treasure turns out to be better suited to Elvis’s basement rumpus room.

You can see which way the wind blows on your cherished item by bringing it to KET’s appraisal fair for Kentucky Collectibles this Saturday, July 26 at Louisville’s Frazier History Museum, located at 829 West Main St.

When you donate $100 to KET, you are guaranteed one ticket to the fair, which allows one person to bring in up to two items to be appraised by our experts.

This year the appraisers are Clark Art and Antiques, Cowan’s Auctions, Cross Gate Gallery, Farmer’s Jewelry, Garth’s Auctions, J. Sampson Antiques and Books, Mike’s Music, Nussbaum Antiques, Richard Mook, and St. John and Myers.

Donate now and reserve your tickets today! You can also donate by phone at (800) 866-0366.

Club KET is also spicing things up with a bongo beat, Caribé café, music by the Jimmy Church Band and optional salsa dance lessons. In partnership with Arthur Murray, special guest Lacey Schwimmer, a professional ballroom dancer best known for her appearances on So You Think You Can Dance? (2007-2008) and Dancing with the Stars (2008-2011), will demonstrate her mirror ball moves.
