Treasures in the Attic?

Sunday, February 26, 2017 @ 7:43 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Once again,  area residents  are invited to take a close look at  the items in their homes to see if perhaps  there is a hidden treasure  lurking in the china cabinet,  bookshelf , closet,  or basement.

Antique appraiser Ted Pappas will be  in Prince George  in  late March to  help owners learn more about  the origins, value or function  of items.   It’s a fundraising event for the Huble Homestead/ Giscome Portage Heritage Society.

Pappas has  40 years o experience in the auction business and has seen or appraised practically anything  you could imagine,  from family heirlooms to garage sale deals, white elephant gifts to Star Trek collectibles signed by William Shatner.

There is a $15 cost to have an item appraised,  and if  the item stumps Pappas, he can at least point you in the direction of  an expert who will have the answers.  There is no charge  if you  just want to attend the  event  as a spectator.

You have  plenty of time to sort through  items  to bring to the event, as it  will take place  in the atrium of  Exploration Place on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26   from 10 until 4  each day.
