Massillon Museum Seeks Vendors for “Relics and Refabs”

The Massillon Museum is seeking vendors for its Antiques Road Show-style Relics and Refabs: MassMu Appraisal Fair and Market event on Saturday, June 25.  A cadre of highly respected appraisers, booths full of antiques and repurposed objects, pertinent panel discussions, live music, food and beverages, demonstrations, and children’s activities will stretch from the Massillon Museum to St. George Cultural Center in downtown Massillon.

Admission to the event will be $5.  Verbal appraisals will be $5 each (limit three per guest). Musicians and activities will be stationed between the sites to encourage pedestrian enjoyment of downtown Massillon on the first Saturday of summer.
