The Craftsman Co. will hold a free "Finding America's Treasures," based on the televison program, in Cleveland from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, at the Sears Hometown Store at 522 Third St.

"This is a hunt to unveil the hidden treasures found in garages, workshops and attics across the country," said a spokesman for the Chicago-based manufacturer affiliated with Sears Holding Corp.

"From vintage Craftsman Tools and tractors to vintage bicycles, signs and other historic items, we want to see the Mississippi Delta’s ‘treasures.’

Fans of the show are encouraged to come out and have their treasures evaluated by an appraiser, enjoy free food and receive a discount on a new Craftsman Tool Saturday."

Noting the Cleveland stop is one of only 31 this year in the U.S., the spokesman said those who miss it may, through Aug. 12, log onto and click on the American Treasures tab to upload photos of their items.

"Photos from each event will be uploaded to the Craftsman Facebook page so fans can watch as history unfolds," he said.
