B-Town’s Own “Antiques Roadshow” Is This Saturday
The Highline Historical Society is presenting its own version of “Antiques Roadshow” this Saturday, April 5th, from Noon â€“ 5pm at Karuna Arts Yoga Center, which is located at 819 SW 152nd, at the corner of Ambaum (in the future home of the Society).
From the Society:
Start pulling out those stashed away antiques that you have always been curious about and bring them in to be appraised. We have put together a â€œTreasure Huntâ€ to give you and your friends the opportunity to bring your articles to us for discussion and valuation. The Society is pleased to retain Certified Appraiser Mike Wall for this event. He will help you decide whether you want to simply value the item and keep it, or sell it, (or perhaps donate it to the Society).
Mike has a strong background in fine art and antiques, is degreed in Art History, university trained in appraiser studies, and has completed course material with the Gemological Institute of America, International Society of Appraisers and a Sothebyâ€™s program in London. He has owned three antique and fine art galleries since 1977 (to 1995) and has done certified appraisal work since 1978 â€“ often appearing in court as an expert witness.
A world traveler and retired military officer, Mike is a professional appraiser who also does â€œTreasure Huntâ€ events similar to Antique Roadshow, for retirement communities, charity events and other miscellaneous group functions. Together with his team of seasoned professionals, Mike also organizes estate or business liquidation sales, in addition to the type of event he is doing for the Society. We look forward to an interesting day.
Your items will be appraised at a fee of $7.00 per item. One free item with your membership card. The appraisal you receive will be authentic, but a verbal one. Please bring your own notepad to write down information the appraiser gives to you.
All Society and community members are invited to attend this event. In other words, bring your friends and neighbors!
