Ypsilanti Historical Society will meet Sunday, May 22nd at the Ypsilanti Historical Museum from 3pm to 5pm
Special Guest Speaker Mrs. Demaris Cash of Treasure Mart fame
Who is Mrs. Demaris E Cash and What is a Treasure Mart? If you have needed to dispose of a precious doorknob or replace a beloved camphor trunk that sailed out of Shanghai in the 19th century, you would eventually be directed to the “Treasure Mart” in Ann Arbor. On any given day you can wander through two floors of recycling treasures and locate an early edition of Hawthorne, a circa 1790 grandfather clock, a complete set of Haviland china, a Polaroid camera, a well-loved and now abandoned stuffed rabbit, a set of melmac dishes, or a magnificent oriental rug.
Mrs. Cash is the genius who moves treasures from one owner's loving care to its new home. She knows her merchandise and what the treasures really are among those recyclables. She's going to share some of her treasures and her experiences in the Treasure Business.
This meeting is Open to the Public and your friends are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Refreshments will be served.
Sunday May 22nd 3PM to 5PM
