Join RAHS for our 30th Antique Appraisal Day! Yep! We said 30 — with the exception of 2020 during the pandemic, RAHS has held this event annually for three decades! This is RAHS’s biggest annual fundraiser and a popular community event.  Nine appraisers will be available to provide verbal appraisals on your most treasured heirlooms and antiques.
