What’s it worth?

If you absolutely must be in Portland Sunday, you might want to check this out while you’re there. The Oregon Historical Society, 1200 S.W. Park Ave. in Portland, is holding its very first “What’s It Worth” event (think Antiques Roadshow) from noon to 4 p.m. It’s a grand opportunity to find out if some of your old clutter contains a treasure in disguise.

You pay the regular OHS admission fee to get in ($11 for adults), then $10 per estimate, and you can bring a maximum of five items to be evaluated by local specialists. This includes fine art, autographs, coins, comic and rare books, jewelry, and yes, even that dusty quockerwodger Aunt Sophronia left in the attic in 1902.
