Antique ID planned for Nov. 9

Wondering whether your latest yard sale find is an undiscovered treasure? Bring it to Antique ID V and find out.

The annual event, now in its fifth year, will be held on the grounds of Tullis-Toledano Manor Saturday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Eighteen authorities from Mississippi and Louisiana, with expertise in areas such as Civil War memorabilia and costume jewelry, will volunteer to help people learn more about family heirlooms and flea market finds. Information on how to care for treasures also will also be available.

Local bed and breakfast inns — including Lofty Oaks Inn, Shadowlawn, Father Ryan House, La Belle Maison and the Old Santini House — are helping out by hosting the out-of-town experts.

Admission to the grounds is $5, but is free for members of the Friends of Tullis-Toledano Manor. Information provided by experts is for educational purposes only. No written appraisals will be given.
