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 Anglican Church is getting our own version of this show coming to our Hall on September 28, from 1 – 4:30.
For a modest fee of $20 per item for appraisal or $5 per person to watch the show, which also includes tea and cakes while you watch the show. 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 over $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 pkjonesATcogecoDOTca
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, SEPTEMBER 28, in the Hall of St. Georges Anglican Church (60 Guelph Street, Georgetown). $20 per appraisal item [tea and cakes incl] OR FOR $5 –COME JOIN THE FUN.
Last year we found that some people did not have an item for appraisal but wanted to check out what all the fun was about. Sometimes the most surprising finds are discovered as valuable when we thought they might just be pretty [ or not so pretty ] ‘junk’! If you do not have an item for appraisal but want an informative, fun and amusing day, come for tea and cakes [$5 only – walk ins without appraisal item encouraged] and join us.
