Antiques show tries new lure

Heirloom can be appraised free

        SPRINGBORO - Bring Grandma's treasures this weekend if you're heading to the Lebanon Antiques Show.

        For the first time, the semiannual show provides an opportunity to learn more about family heirlooms. Senior appraiser Claudia Miller of Lebanon will be on hand 2-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to look over items and assess them.

        “Most things she can give an idea of fair-market value, others may require some research,” said Sue Hall, the show manager. “But it's a great opportunity for people who have a family keepsake they'd like to know the value of.”

        For the fourth time, the Lebanon-based show takes place in Springboro because of lack of space in Lebanon. About 80 dealers will offer everything from snuff boxes to settees. Proceeds from the show benefit the Warren County Historical Society.

        Event hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Springboro Junior High School, on Ohio 741 just south of the historic downtown. Admission is $5, which includes the cost of appraisal for two items.

        For information, call the historical society, 932-1817.
