Galaxie Library hosting antique appraisal event

Galaxie Library will host an antique appraisal starting at 4;30 p.m. June 22 featuring author and antiques expert Mark F. Moran of Iola, Wisconsin.

Local residents have submitted information about their antiques or have had Moran view them prior to the event, which is expected to cover a wide range of collectibles.

Moran will run the program similar to public television’s popular “Antiques Roadshow.”

Formerly senior editor of Antiques and Collectibles Books for Krause Publications in Iola, Moran has been a contributing editor for Antique Trader magazine. He has served as editor of Antique Review East magazine; as producer of Atlantique City, an antique show held in Atlantic City, N.J.; and as editorial director of F+W Media’s Antiques Group.

He is the author or co-author of more than 25 books on antiques and collectibles, including three editions of the 800-page annual Warman’s Antiques & Collectibles.

Moran bought and sold antiques for more than 30 years, specializing in vintage folk art, Americana, and fine art. He has been active as an appraiser of antiques and fine art for more than 20 years.

Galaxie Library is located at 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley.
