What’s in your attic, treasure or trinkets?

Antiques in the Attic is returning to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre with appraiser Peter Blundell on Oct. 5

Find out what valuables have been laying around your home when Peter Blundell and Marian Blundell from Guardian Estates Appraisals return once again to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for Antiques in the Attic on Oct. 5.

Providing expertise as professional antique appraisers, Peter and Marian will assess anything from furniture, collectible items, and 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 treasures 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, Peter’s inviting and curious personality creates an easy going and pleasant atmosphere for his consultation. Peter’s incredible knowledge specializing in North American and European art, furniture, silver, porcelain, pottery collectibles and kerosene lights will tell you if you have treasure 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.

A member of the Canadian Personal Property Appraisers and a fully accredited appraiser, Marian has been heavily involved in the antiques and fine art business over the years, assisting Peter in his travels and endeavours. As an avid photographer and experienced businesswoman, Marian helps Peter do his appraisals by offering her photographic skills as well as applying her business, knowledge and heritage skills, making their team a perfect combination of skill sets.

Fifteen-minute sessions with the professionals Peter and Marian Blundell are 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 collectibles you want to have appraised, you can book multiple sessions so you can find out once and for all what they are worth.

Unfortunately, items such as jewellery, coins, stamps, guns, or wrist watches are not able to be appraised at this event.

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.

Antiques in the Attic is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $45 for a 15-minute session and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
