Study Before You Get Schooled

You might think that you know everything you need to know about the world of antiques and collectibles. After all, you caught an all-day marathon of Storage Wars last weekend, and after three episodes you were shouting at that Brandi chick for even considering a unit full of crappy luggage. Plus, you’ve been watching people humiliate themselves on Antiques Roadshow for years. Turns out, though, that there are a zillion nuances in the art/antiques/collectibles game that can affect both the price and the value of your coveted goods. Get all kinds of insight into the world of collecting as part of Heritage Auctions’ Second Tuesdays at Slocum series. Lectures can touch on appraisals, pricing, art history, preservation and business practices, or any number of other fascinating topics. Tuesday’s installment starts at 6 p.m. at the Heritage Design District Annex, 1518 Slocum St. Admission is free so you can continue to save up for your big auction score. See fineart.ha.com for more.
