After paying for the appropriate number of items to be appraised, the participant will be given a number and directed to a waiting area. For those who are waiting, there will be free admission to walk through the Black House. The public park and gardens will be open. If the weather is fair, you can also enjoy watching a game of 6 wicket croquet by the Woodlawn croquet players.  Refreshments available for purchase.
