Bradley Airport’s Makeover: Will You 'Love the Journey'?

Connecticut’s biggest airport is in the midst of a makeover that’s come just in time. Terminal B was a vacant, long-standing eyesore until it was demolished in February, and travelers, in the most recent airport satisfaction study by J.D. Power & Associates, ranked Bradley a below-average airport.

New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Chester's Antiques & Jewelry Appraisal Morning

Event Date/Time

Nov 9, 2013
8:30 am until 12:00 pm

Description

Chester's Antiques & Jewelry Appraisal Morning

All those “treasures” you’ve stashed in your attic for decades, planning to pass them down to future generations (or maybe you want to sell them to take a trip around the world), what are they really worth? Wouldn’t you like to know?

Think carefully about this. That set of sterling silver flatware that you never use and your kids have told you they have no interest in – what is it worth? Kevin Timme, a professional silver appraiser, could tell you. Your uncle’s gold watch and your grandmother’s Christmas tree pin you never wear – Peter Indorf or Gay Sherman Weintz, both of whom appraise jewelry, could give you an idea of their value.

The silver dollars you’ve got stashed away in your safe deposit box, the letters and envelopes your great-grandfather saved from his childhood, the old school books, the painting you inherited, the quilt from your aunt’s house – are they worth saving to pass down to your descendants or are they worth selling?

On Saturday, Nov. 9, the Chester Historical Society is presenting its 10th Antiques and Jewelry Appraisal program, with 11 experts appraising art works, furniture, silver, books, ephemera, jewelry, coins and currency, stamps, glass, textiles, and much more.  It will be at St. Joseph’s Parish Center on Rte. 154 in Chester from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon.

Three of the appraisers are generalists, meaning they deal with the full range of antiques. With decades of experience as professional appraisers, they’ve seen it all. They are:  Norman and Linda Legassie of Stepping Stones Antiques and Collectibles in Old Saybrook; and Tom Perry of One of a Kind Antiques (www.OneOfaKindAntiques.com). 

The other eight appraisers have specialties. They are: Orville Haberman of CT River Books (books and ephemera); Paul Indorf of Connecticut Jewelry Appraisers (fine jewelry, gemstones, watches); Steve Lutar and Dave Passamano of Guilford Coin Exchange (coins, currency, and stamps); Tom Medlin of Essex (American furniture of the 18th and 19th centuries, American paintings, and base metals, especially brass candlesticks); John Newman of Deep River (American-made glass and Aladdin oil and electric lamps); Kevin Timme (silver); and Gay Sherman Weintz (vintage and antique costume jewelry).

Each attendee may bring up to three separate items to be appraised. If the item is too large to carry, bring photographs (if it's a table or dresser, bring in a drawer too). Verbal appraisals will cost $10 for the first item; $20 for 2 items; or $25 for 3 items. All proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Chester Historical Society and its work on the Chester Museum at The Mill.

St. Joseph’s Parish Center is near the intersection of Main Street and Rte. 154 (Middlesex Avenue) in Chester. There is ample parking and handicapped access. More information, including directions to the event, is on the website, ChesterHistoricalSociety.org, or email your questions to chestercthistoricalsociety@gmail.com.
