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 Saturday, September 27, from 1 – 4:30pm.

For a modest fee of $20 per item for appraisal (or $5 per person to watch the show) which also includes tea and goodies, 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 church 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. Because we are only able to appraise between 40-50 items within the allotted time frame, we ask that you preregister by contacting Sarah Gartenburg at 289 891-8908 or with the contact form below.
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 27, in the Hall of St. Georges Anglican Church (60 Guelph Street, Georgetown). Again the cost is $20 per appraisal item [tea and cakes incl] or $5 to come in and join the fun!
Each year the crowd grows as more people have 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.
