Antique or Unique?

Do you want to get information from an expert? Assistance League of Albuquerque will help you find out whether that or any other curiosity you have is Antique or Unique?

We invite members of the public to join us on March 23, 2014 and bring up to two treasures to be appraised by qualified and experienced appraisers as seen on the well-known PBS program. You will receive a verbal appraisal for your item. The money raised will be applied to our major philanthropic programs.

Space is limited. When you purchase your ticket, you will be able to request a time slot for your verbal appraisal. More information is available at
