Learn All About Your Vintage and Collectible Treasures!

Ever wonder about the history of that antique cameo brooch you inherited, or the value of that brightly colored glass vase you snapped up at a garage sale? Drop-in appraisals are available from 10am-3pm at all Retro Design & Antiques Fairs, on a first-come-first-served basis. Items should be small enough to carry, with a maximum of three items per person allowed, and the cost of each verbal appraisal is $10 per item or 3 items for $25 (cash only please). We cannot accept responsibility for the safety of your items, so please take care to wrap fragile pieces well.

The appraisals will be conducted by Gale Pirie, an independent, accredited member of the Canadian Personal Property Appraisers Group with many years of experience in valuing estate goods. She's previously worked as an appraiser with the CBC's Canadian Antiques Roadshow, and we're delighted to offer her knowledge and expertise at all Retro Design & Antiques Fairs! For more information on Gale's work, read these features: Secondhand Savvy, Vancouver Sun, and Agassiz Harrison Observer.
