Home Show to Host Tom Bassett

Posted on January 31, 2017 by hchamber

The 2017 Henderson Home Show is quickly approaching, so mark your calendars for Saturday, February 25, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This year the Home Show will be held in the Heartland High School new gym.

One new activity will be added this year in the afternoon as Tom Bassett presents on antique appraisals from 12-2pm.  Those in attendance are welcome to bring one item for Bassett to appraise for free during his presentation.

Basset is a native of Hastings, Nebraska and Graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan, with a Master’s degree from UNL.  He conducts appraisals for a number of banks and law firms as well as teaches classes at Southeast Community College entitled “Buying and Selling Antiques” and Buying and Selling Coins.  He is a past president of the Lincoln Coin Club, the Nebraska Numismatic Association and several track and field organizations at both Nebraska Wesleyan and UNL.  He is also a member of the Executive Club and is a longtime member of the New England Appraisers Association.  In 1983, he conducted what is likely the largest antique appraisal in the history of Nebraska when he appraised Pioneer Village in Minden.
