Donations of antiques and vintage items for the “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction”, sponsored by the FRIENDS of the Wisconsin Historical Society, are now being accepted.  Contributions of antiques (more than 99 years old) and vintage items (50-99 years old) are being gathered from across mid-America.  Large or small, desks to fountain pens, tables to porcelain – your donations are WELCOME for this fund-raiser.  In keeping with the goal of the FRIENDS of WHS, each item donated to the auction will be accompanied by a Provenance Statement, and tax deductible receipts will be used.  The auction catalog will note the history of each piece as well as the donor’s name, if desired.

The auction will be held at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle, WI in the Clausing Barn.  Doors open at 9 Am for the event with bidding to begin an hour later at 10.

To make a donation or for more information, contact Riene Wells, 262 362-4700 and or Debbie McArdle, 815 575-1272 or
