Antiques Valuation Day at Pioneer Village Museum

Have you ever wondered what your family heirlooms are worth?

The Pioneer Village Museum is holding an Antiques Valuation Day on Saturday 3 September between 12pm and 4pm.

Pioneer Village Museum Curator Georgia Luck said, “Everyone is welcome to visit the museum during the day with their special items to be valued or just simply to share the story behind their object.

“Often how the object ended up with a person is more fascinating than its value. It’s the story behind the object that I love to hear. It is certainly worth dusting off your old treasures you have inherited or collected and bringing them in.”

Antiques dealer and expert Craig Broadfield from the Leven Antique Centre will be at the museum to value your treasures. Craig has been in the antiques business since 1987.

Cost is only $2 per item or $5 for three items and includes free admission to the museum.

“There is no need to RSVP, just turn up between 12pm and 4pm and have your item valued. Everyone is also encouraged to come along and observe other items being valued. I can’t wait to find out what antiques have been hiding under beds on the North-West Coast,” she said.

The Pioneer Village Museum can be found at Little Alexander Street Burnie.
