Antique Appraisals.

The man inspecting the items, Michael Amosson out of Soldier, Iowa, has been in the business 38 years and has been appraising antiques for 10 years.

“Folks are mostly curious about, what it is and what it’s worth, but mostly the history about it — when it’s made and who made it and so on,” Amosson said. “The value usually is not the main point. There are some folks who come in and are interested in selling them. I’m not a very strong buyer right now, but I have opportunities at the appraisal table to buy lots and lots of nice items. And it’s difficult to wear two hats.”

Chat with The Mushroom King Tom Weipert!

Get hunting tips, recipes, and more!Sustainability & Outdoor Living Mushroom King

This mushroom is a Lion’s Mane or Hericium. It has many antibiotic properties and loads of other goodies for our immune systems. Come by the booth and we will tell you all about it.

Consuming wild mushrooms can be a hazardous endeavor and in some cases even fatal! Before eating any mushroom collected from the wild it is absolutely critical that it is identified with certainty. An old mushroom hunters’ axiom Sustainability & Outdoor Living Mushroom Kingstates “When in doubt, throw it out”, such an embrace of skepticism can save your life.

As his nickname suggests, Tom knows a lot more about mushrooms than the average hunter. His father started bringing him along on mushroom hunts when he was just 3 years old. Through the years he learned about the unique relationship of mushrooms to trees, the best weather conditions and places to find them. Soon he became so skilled at finding mushrooms that when his friends in high school would have their annual hunt, he always came back with the most. Last year he traveled 54,000 miles hunting for mushrooms all around the country.
