It’s all for the animals at a special auction set by the Hyde Park Country Auctions in Salt Point, on Sat., March 22.
Catherine Forbes, director of development, at the Dutchess County SPCA, said that the auction center, at 323 Hibernia Road, will donate all proceeds from its Antiques and Treasures auction on that date to the local SPCA, located on Route 9G.
In addition to the auction, which begins at noon with a preview of items at 10am, professional appraisers will be on hand to provide expert opinion for anyone seeking input on the value of their own hidden treasures. Appraisals cost $10 for one item, or $20 for three items, similar to the “Antiques Roadshow.”
Forbes told the Observer, “We are so grateful to Hyde Park Country Auctions for their generosity, and we are still seeking antique or other special items to be included in the auction.”
