Antiques Identification Clinic
The antique identification clinic will run throughout the shows hours. A fascinating aspect of keeping family heirlooms is the fact that they may have monetary value far beyond what their owners can imagine. Find out more about your own heirlooms at The Antique Expo at Tradex. The Identification clinic will feature Peter Blundell, CPA, a fully accredited member of the Canadian Association of Personal Property Appraisers, author and lecturer on antiques. Peter’s career in antiques has taken him throughout Europe, the USA and across Canada since 1969. Now living in Vernon, he travels across the west, doing appraisal work.
How it works
Bring your items for appraisal. You may bring as many items as you wish. When you arrive, go directly to the appraisal tables and get yourself a number. From this number you will be able to approximate your appointment time, then go and have fun searching the rest of the show and enjoy the many wonderful things on offer. If you miss your turn you will be inserted and accommodated at the next number in line. The Clinic operates during all show hours. At your appointed time, meet with the expert and show him your treasures.
Fees: $12 per item.
