Wilkes University Center for Continued Leaning will host an antiques appraisal event on Thursday, Aug. 15 from 6-8 p.m. in the ballroom of the Henry Student Center, 84 W. South St. in Wilkes-Barre.
The event will feature television auction celebrity Dr. Lori Verderame. Verderame stars as the antique appraiser on the Discovery channel’s reality television show “Auction Kings.” She has been featured on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Well known for her comedic and no-holds-barred approach, Verderame never knows what kind of relics her audience will bring her next. She leaves the audience howling for more with her wildly funny, one-of-a-kind unscripted banter.
Verderame, who lives in Bucks County, Pa., will not pull any punches as she evaluates items for auction. While she entertains, Verderame provides suggestions on how to sell unwanted stuff for top dollar, teaches the secrets of auctions, gives pointers on how to negotiate and discover bargains.
The cost of the event is $30 which includes appraisals on two items.
