A man cave decked out in Civil War memorabilia.
Your significant other has probably been nagging you for weeks, but here's another reason to buck up and clean out your attic or garage: The prospect of cold hard cash.
The Western Reserve Historical Society is throwing its annual verbal appraising event this weekend, and in efforts to unearth a wider variety of historical memorabilia and collectibles, they've named this year's theme "Man Cave Trash or Treasure."
Professional appraisers will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 to orally evaluate potentially valuable items such as coins, stamps, sports relics, comics, among other things. With hundreds of avid collectors in attendance — who knows — you could get an offer for your goods on the spot.
Folks interested in having items appraised can register in advance and should expect to pay $5 per item (up to five) or $25 per collection (up to two), as well as admission to the event.
