Trinkets or treasures, what’s in your attic?

Professional antique appraiser Peter Blundell returns to the Cultural Centre for Antiques in the Attic on Oct. 6

Peter Blundell returns to Chilliwack for Antiques in the Attic at the Cultural Centre Oct. 6.

Find out what valuables have been laying around your home when Peter Blundell from Guardian Estates Appraisals returns once again to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for Antiques in the Attic on Oct. 6.

Providing expertise as a professional antique appraiser, Blundell will assess anything from furniture, collectable items, pottery, to ornaments and artwork.

Raising funds for arts programming at the Cultural Centre, this event is the perfect opportunity to clear out the dusty corners of your home and see what commodities you can dig up, all for a good cause. It is open to the public, so all are welcome whether to participate or come to watch.

Accredited Appraiser and a member of the Canada Professional Appraisers, Blundell’s inviting and curious personality creates an easy going and pleasant atmosphere for his consultations. His incredible knowledge specializing in North American and European art, furniture, silver, porcelain, pottery collectables and kerosene light will tell you if you have treasures or not.

Equipped with a portable library filled with details on all these items and more, Blundell will share his great range of knowledge with attendees.

Each 15-minute session with Blundell is now available to book for $45. Each appointment has the opportunity for up to three items to be appraised, though some detailed items may need a full time slot to be properly assessed.

However if you have an abundance of heirlooms, old trinkets or collectables you are wanting to have appraised you can book multiple sessions so you can find out once and for all what they’re really worth.

These are verbal opinions on value, not official appraisals, and will not be suitable for insurance purposes. Assessment of all items is subject to the 15-minute time constraint for a fee of $45 per session. Multiple appointments may be booked. Unfortunately items such as jewelry, coins, stamps, guns, or wristwatches are not able to be appraised at this event.

Antiques in the Attic is at the centre from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 6. Call the Centre Box Office today at 604-391-SHOW(7469) to book your session.
