Antiques, rare treasures
Do your cupboards, drawers, and attics hold a small fortune in treasure?
Come along to St Andrew’s Antiques and Collectables Roadshow on Saturday July 8 and find out.
Bring a maximum of three items along, and for the modest fee of $3 per item, you will get a verbal appraisal by two very experienced appraisers who own antique shops in Hamilton and Auckland.
Event organiser Annette Davidson says the appraisers are happy to look at a range of items.
‘‘We all have precious items from the past tucked away at home, but sometimes they can be worth a great deal as well.
‘‘Come and let the appraisers take a look. You might be amazed at what a pretty or sentimental item or even something quirky, is worth.’’
The roadshow will also include a sales table of items to purchase, so if you have treasures in need of a new home, please drop them off to the church office between 10am and 2pm on Tuesday 4 July, Wednesday 5 July or Thursday 6 July.
Davidson says there will also be a treat for classic car enthusiasts, with a display admire - but not for purchase.
‘‘These cars are the pride and joy of their owners, and we are thrilled they have agreed to show and share their vehicles.’’
For the foodies, a delicious lunch and morning and afternoon teas, will be available for sale, along with an all-day barbeque.
The Antiques and Collectibles Roadshow, which is a fundraiser to help pay for on-going church refurbishment costs, will be held at the church complex, 20 Meura St, Matamata, between 10am and 2pm. Entry is $2 for adults, with accompanied children free.
