Fab Friday Lecture - Antiques, Appraisals, and Auctions! By Robert Brunk

Friday, October 24, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

We are pleased to welcome Robert Brunk founder of Brunk Auctions. Since its beginning in 1983 Mr. Brunk has seen his auction house grow from a small regional auction house to a national auction service with international clientele. His experience as an anthropologist, writer and professional woodworker, an unmistakable combination of skills, contributes to illuminate catalog entries. Now retired, he serves as consultant and auctioneer. Brunk Auctions is located at 117 Tunnel Road in Asheville. You are invited to bring small items (no jewelry or modern collectibles please) for possible appraisal. Mr. Brunk will randomly choose a few treasures which might be universally interesting to the audience. This event is free and open to the public.
