Fans of TV’s “Antiques Roadshow” will want to head to th eBellingham Senior Center on Saturday, April 9. The Antiques and Collectibles Evaluation Event will be held in the center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The show will help people determine just how much their heirlooms are worth. Fourteen expert evaluators will be on hand to take a look at toys, books, comic books, jewelry, fine art, tools, military relics and collectibles. You never know what you’re going to find; last year, a couple brought in two small vases they had purchased for $1 each, and an evaluator found they were worth upwards of $1,000.
Evaluators will look at items for $6 each or three for $15. There’s no limit to the number of items you can bring, but only portable items are allowed, so leave the antique furniture at home. The event is free to attend and open to all ages. Hot dogs, chips, coffee and other snacks will be available for purchase. All proceeds for the event will go to the Whatcom Council on Aging programs.
