Genoa sale coming up

Staff reports

Antique dealers will once again line the walls of the Genoa Town Hall for the April 21 and 22 Antique Show and Sale. Shoppers will be able to shop for everything from art glass, jewelry and books to furniture.

This year marks the 150th birthday of the town of Genoa and the show and sale will benefit in part the Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee. Funds are needed for a historic recreation June 1-3 at the Mormon Station. The Mormon Station was established by a party of traders from Salt Lake City in June 1851 following the founding of a temporary post of the same name during the summer of 1850.

There will be appraisers on hand for an appraisal clinic. Ron Casey of Casey’s Antiques and Collectible Market in Silver Springs will be on hand to offer his 49 years of appraisal experience. Martha Williams of Antiques Plus will also be doing appraisals. The charge for this will be $5 per item.

Parking is free and admission is only $1. The hours are Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, April 22, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
