An­tiques, rare trea­sures

Matamata Chronicle - - Out & About - ROAD­SHOW EVENT

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.
