Mike Ratcliffe, noted Tulsa antique appraiser will be at the Sheerar Center on Sunday, October 27 to appraise your prized antiques, family heirlooms and garage sale finds, to benefit the Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History.

Ratcliffe is a member of the International Society of Appraisers and has over 25 years experience with a broad spectrum of antiques but he asks, please no firearms, coins, gemstones, swords or stamps.

He is a popular appraiser at antique events in Tulsa and surrounding cities for charitable organizations. He is familiar to many in Stillwater through the OSU OLLI program, where he conducted an informational course on antiques using his own curriculum.

Sheerar Museum Director Ammie Bryant said, "We are excited offer this opportunity to the community. We are often asked to appraise items at the Museum, but that is something that we as Museum professionals cannot do--for us, all items are priceless due to their irreplaceable provenance." Bryant went on to explain that all proceeds from this program will support operations, including the care of the collections, at the Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History.

The Antique Appraisal Fair runs from 2:30 to 4:30pm on October 27 in the Sheerar Cultural and Heritage Center Auditorium. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door and include one appraisal. Mr. Ratcliffe will appraise up to three items per person at $10 per item. Museum Associates can pre-purchase tickets at the museum. For more information call the museum office at 405-377-0359.

Refreshments will be served.
