THE ANTIQUES ROAD SHOW is a very popular PBS television show in which participants bring their treasures and heirlooms to be viewed by all and informally appraised by experts. St. Georges is getting our own version of this show coming to our Hall on Oct. 1, from 1 – 4:30. For a modest fee of $20 per item for appraisal, which also includes tea and cakes while you watch the show, or $5 for tea and cakes to just watch, you can find out what your valuables are finally worth without the expense of taking it to an estate appraiser. That being said, Century Estate Services, which is helping us free of charge for their services at our fundraiser, is generously offering us a 2 hour consultation or official appraisal record valued at $300 to auction off during the show.
The only exception to items able to be appraised will be jewelry as special equipment is required for this, otherwise bring your silver, furniture, books, pictures or whatever heirlooms or treasures you are curious to know about. From past experience, a very eclectic mix of things will be brought which adds to the fun and interest. [NO JEWELRY]
Because we are only able to appraise between 40 -50 items within the allotted time frame, we ask that you preregister by contacting Kyle Jones at 905 873 2073 or pkjones[at]cogeco[dot]ca
The show will start at 1pm – but start bringing your things at 12:30 so we are ready to roll, and end at around 4:30, on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, in the Hall of the Church.
$20 per appraisal item [tea and cakes incl]
$5 to watch the fun and have tea
Hope to see you there!
