NATIONAL CHERISH AN ANTIQUE DAY
Observed annually on April 9th is National Cherish an Antique Day.
Do you have something special that was passed down from your parents, grandparents or great-grandparents? National Cherish an Antique Day provides us an opportunity to learn the story and the history behind our treasured antiques. It’s an excellent time to record the provenance and preserve it for safe keeping.
Antiques are often cherished because of their personal and emotional connections. Often a colorful story tells how it came into the family making it even more valuable as an heirloom.
National Cherish an Antique Day also recognizes the quality and uniqueness of the items that were made by hand rather than by machine.
