Format: Informal, expo-style with visitors freely wandering from table to table With the Brick Store Museum's own historical building renovations project nearing completion, we figured it'd be a grand time to shine the spotlight on caring for treasures. At the Museum, we get lots of questions from our visitors, and we find that they really are interested in preserving their own treasures (home movies, wedding dresses, artwork, autograph collections, baseball cards, quilts, scrapbooks, etc.), but they don't know where to turn, what questions to ask, and what options are even available. 'Restoration" or "conservation" usually lies outside people's vocabulary or comfort zone, and they often automatically and mistakenly assume it is always either overly complicated or prohibitively expensive. Here's where you can help demystify the process and help empower people with the knowledge and resources on how best to care for their family heirlooms. In the process, Preservation Station intends to highlight the considerable expertise available to the community...you!
