Experts from Neal Auction Company in New Orleans will also be on hand to provide guests with a general verbal estimation of the value of their treasures. Bring artwork, crafts, historical items, unusual tools and household items, photographs, old letters, books, maps and documents. Participants are invited to bring family and friends. They can stroll around the center and enjoy listening to the experts discuss various items. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Louisiana Association of Museums, a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1979 to help our state’s museums better serve their communities.
