Make no mistake, it’s gold they’re after, especially since the values of precious metals have gone through the roof. Nevertheless, the Spingfield, Ill.-based bric-a-brac barons are interested in virtually anything that might be worth something, and your basement or attic could indeed be hiding the next holy grail. So cart your stuff to the appraisers at Liverpool’s Holiday Inn, 441 Electronics Parkway, from Wednesday, Dec. 15, through Friday, Dec. 17, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 18, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and find out what is collectible and what could be kicked to the curb. Admission is free. For details, call (217) 726-7950.
