Have you ever wondered how much your family heirlooms are worth?
At the first-ever Steveston antique appraisal fundraiser event — paying homage to Britain’s popular Antiques Roadshow — community members can bring in antique items to learn their value from appraisers.
The event will take place at Army Navy and Air Force (ANAF) 284 in Steveston on Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Lenny Entwistle, organizer of the event, told the Richmond News the idea for the event came after 1,200 people attended the summer vintage fair in Steveston.
“So many people were asking how much items were worth, so we came up with (Steveston’s version) of the antique roadshow idea,” said Entwistle.
“During COVID-19, we lost all the antique shows, and most never came back.”
Appraisers will be on site to look at items brought in by community members, but appointments need to be made in advance. The cost to have an item appraised is $10 or $25 for three.
There will also be vendors selling antiques at the event.
Admission is $2 at the door with all proceeds benefiting the Steveston Historical Society and ANAF.
Community members are asked to email a photo and any information about their items to the Steveston Historical Society at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event.
