Are you a fan of Antiques Roadshow? Do you have an old vase, lamp, or piece of jewelry at home that you picked up at an estate sale or inherited from a relative? Ever wondered if it might be valuable? Our Kansas Collection Librarian, Anne, might be able to help you learn more about it. Just snap a quick picture and email it with a brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Anne will do her best to research your item and get some historical background for you. If it turns out to be a treasure, we can’t provide you with an actual appraisal, but we can help you find someone who can.
