Antiques? Artwork? Have them appraised this weekend

Surrey Antiques off the Roadshow takes place at Surrey Art Gallery June 2.

Rummage through the attic, and check out the storage area in the garage.

Do you have an heirloom or antique? What about that old gold jewelry you’re planning to sell? Do you know its value? You may be wonderfully surprised.

Bundle up that treasured item and bring it to the 8th annual Surrey Antiques off the Roadshow at the Surrey Art Gallery on Saturday, June 2 between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

All items will be given a verbal appraisal by experts Linda Devine (jewelry), Jim Finlay (fine art), and Jeff Harris (aboriginal and Inuit art, and collectibles) who will ask questions such as “Where did the item come from?,” “How much did you pay for it?,” “Is it a family heirloom?,” and “What do you know about its history?”

The cost is $10 for the first item and $5 for each additional item. This is a drop-in event; registration is not required. Observers are welcome. Parking is free. This event is sponsored by Surrey Art Gallery Association.
