HAGERSTOWN -- It was a hopeful crowd, comprised of people toting every kind of item you can imagine -- old paintings, baskets, clocks and toys.
And they carried them in all sorts of containers, from plastic bags to a child's wagon.
They had questions and they came for answers.
When was it made? Where was it made? And, most importantly, how much was it worth?
A steady stream of people made its way to and from Morris Frock American Legion Post 42 on Saturday morning to find out if their possessions were trash or treasure.
It was the 2009 Antiques Appraisal Fair, sponsored by the Washington County Historical Society.
A fundraiser for the society, this is the third year for the fair, said William K. Beard, president of the board of directors.
