Arts & Antiques in the Square

Do you have Tennessee Treasures? 

Find out the value of your family heirlooms at the Arts & Antiques in the Square’s Tennessee Treasures Appraisal Fair, April 29, in Jackson Square.Professional appraisers from Case Antiques, Inc., will be on hand to value your treasures.

Appraisals are $10 per item, or 6 items for $50, with the proceeds benefiting Jackson Square Business Association, bringing the arts to the historic heart of our city!

Appraisers on site from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Browse Arts & Antiques Vendors from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.


The appraisals are verbal-only, current market value estimates and cannot be used for insurance or other purposes.

For items that are difficult to transport, bring photo hardcopies or photos on an iPad (digital camera or smart phone photos often work as well). You can also email photos to and reference the appraisal fair you will attend in the email subject and/or body and we’ll have them with us to review at the fair.

Following are a few guidelines for photos and items:

  • For large or heavy furniture, take photos of:
    • The front and back of the item
    • The feet of the item
    • Close-ups of any special markings, signatures and dovetails
      • Markings or signatures may be inside or on the bottom of drawers or on the bottom of the furniture.
      • Dovetails may exist where the panels of the drawer interface with each other.
    • Firearms
      • Early firearms only, generally pre-1900
      • Unloaded only
      • Photos are OK, but get close-ups of any markings and decorations on the gun barrel, the trigger area and the hammer area
