Gary Sohmers, who appears on the PBS television program, Antiques Roadshow, will be doing appraisals at The Pier Antiques Show this weekend, November 14-15. Gary appraises items as varied as Sixties Rock Concert Posters and Depression era dolls. Show organizers encourage visitors to dig through their attic or closets and bring all finds to Gary to find out what they are worth. Verbal Appraisals are $5 per item, which will be donated to charity.
