You already know the sentimental value, but if you’d like to know how much your antiques are really worth, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and the Gallery Associates invite you to this weekend’s fundraiser, What’s it Worth?
“What’s it Worth? allows you to find out the market value of your treasure and garner insight into its history,” says event co-chair Bill Huzar.
“You may find that your treasure has only sentimental value or that it is very valuable and you need to insure and preserve it. Regardless, this will be a fun opportunity to see and learn about a variety of antiques and collectibles,” adds co-chair Penny Davies.
Attendees can bring up to two portable items, and at least one will be assessed by accredited Kilshaw’s Auctioneers appraisers, Alison Ross and Jeff Dean.
The event is the Art Gallery of Victoria on Saturday, Feb. 6. Attendees can choose from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 to 4 p.m. Tickets, available at the Gallery or at aggv.ca, are $35 both for those seeking appraisals and those who just want to observe. The ticket price includes admission to the galleries and refreshments. Visit aggv.ca or call 250-384-4171.
