Have any items tucked away that are collectable, unusual, historical, or antique? Want to know more about them, including what they’re worth? Bring them down to the 10th Annual Antiques Roadshow and Heritage Fair on Saturday, February 19th. This major fundraising event will be held at the Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Fascinating and valuable items have been “discovered” in the past. Will your item be the next big discovery?
Qualified appraisers generously donate their time and expertise to appraise a variety of items including paintings, stamps and coins, silver, jewelry, rare books, collectables, china, military items and much more. Appraisals will be limited to a maximum of 3 items per person so that as many participants as possible can be seen. Admission is free but an appraisal will cost $10 for 1 item, $15 for 2 items, and $20 for 3 items.
There will be heritage displays by the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives as well Sechelt Archives, Egmont Heritage Center and the Pender Harbour Living Heritage Society. We will also have a selection of items from the Museum Gift Shop for sale – Seedling Creativity Kits for kids, Boat Crafts, books, vintage postcards and more.
This is a major fundraising event for the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives, and all proceeds support Museum services and programs. Donations are also greatly appreciated or you can purchase a museum membership and receive our bi-annual newsletter.
