An Antique Appraisal Fair last Saturday at Maple Village, LSSM's premier retirement community in Bloomfield Hiills, raised $900. The funds will be donated to Heartline, a community justice program for women in Detroit. Ninety people attended the fair, bringing their treasured artworks, jewelry, coins and other items for appraisal by antiques professionals. One oil painting was appraised at $2,000. There was also a lot of interest in an antique jeweled sword of Middle Eastern origin.
