Ever wondered if you were sitting on a fortune in collectibles?

So how much is that old painting worth? Or how about that hand-painted ceramic, or dusty kerosene lamp?

Peter Blundell of Blundell Art and Antique Appraisals returns to the Cultural Centre this weekend, for an ‘Antiques in the Attic’ art and antique appraisal event.

He’s coming back for a return engagement, based on how very popular his October session was locally. Lots of people left quite happy with what they heard.

So once again Chilliwackians with collectibles, art or antiques can trot out a few treasures to the Cultural Centre on May 30 or 31, to allow Blundell to offer a verbal appraisal. Each session allows for viewing of up to three items, subject to the time limit, although some individual items may require a full 15-minute session.

Blundell specializes in North American and European art, furniture, silver, porcelain, pottery, collectibles and early kerosene lighting.

He is even able to appraise furniture that may be too large to transport. The curious client can bring along a section or piece from the item, such as a drawer, along with a photograph and the dimensions, and they will get an expert opinion on its value.

He will not be appraising jewellery, coins, stamps, guns or wristwatches however, and the Blundell appraisals simply offer a verbal value, not an appraisal for insurance purposes.

This event will be open to the public, with the appraiser’s years of experience and knowledge in professional appraisal available during each session. Blundell is able to appraise up to three items, although more detailed items may require a full session for proper inspection.

If you’ve got a treasure trove hidden away then don’t worry. Organizers have thought of that. Guests can book multiple sessions so they don’t have to narrow down the items. Gather up the artwork and antiques and head to the Cultural Centre 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 30 and May 31. For more information or to book your spot, call the Centre Box Office at 604-391-SHOW(7469), $40 for a 15 minute session – up to three items viewed.www.chilliwackculturalcentre.com
