Covington Antiques and Uniques Festival to Host “Ask an

Appraiser” Curious about an unusual vase that belonged to

your great-grandmother? Ever wonder how much your old

baseball cards are worth? Local residents and visitor are

invited to bring their curiosities, treasures and

collectibles to downtown Covington to discover what they

are and how much they could be worth at “Ask an Appraiser,”

Sunday, April 22, at 2 pm at the Covington Trailhead on New

Hampshire Street.

The event will offer amateur collectors a casual forum

where they can present their treasures to a team of

professional appraisers. Each item will be matched to an

appraser, who will give a verbal description and estimated

value for the item, and answer any questions the collector

may have. The event is headed up by licensed auctioneer

and certified appraiser Pennie Carr. Areas of specialty

among the panel of appraisers include military items,

furniture, silver, collectibles, dolls, toys, children’s

items, fine jewelry and more.

Tickets are $5 each or $10 for up to 3 items. Fine jewelry

is limited to one piece per person. Proceeds benefit the

Covington Heritage Foundation, whose mission is to preserve

the City’s culture, character and community.

“Ask an Appraiser” is one of many attractions featured at

the Covington Antiques and Uniques Festival, scheduled on

April 21st and 22nd on New Hampshire and Theard Streets in

downtown Covington. In its 4th year, the mainstay of the

event will be more than 70 booths containing an array of

antiques and vintage furnishings and collectibles, and

vintage fine arts and crafts.
The festival will also feature the Oxen Attic consignment

booth, as well as indoor booths in the Trailhead Museum,

containing more fragile items such as glassware and

textiles. Rounding out the festival event will be a

mouthwatering selection of food and beverages, as well as

live music throughout both days.
