Lynnwood Appraisal Roadshow coming in June

Are there things in your house that you don’t even know what they’re used for? Did Grandma tell you that precious item was given to her by someone famous?

Dig out your dusty heirlooms and come see what they’re worth at the Lynnwood Appraisal Roadshow from 1-3 p.m., Wednesday, June 5 at the Lynnwood Senior Center.

Your heirloom will be appraised by expert Mac McVay, a third-generation licensed antiques collector and dealer. McVay started appraising at age 11 when neighbors would pay him 25 cents to make sure their garage sale prices were fair. You may bring one item (or one grouping) to the roadshow for a verbal assessment or appraisal. Your treasure should be able to fit in a box you can carry in your arms. In lieu of larger items, including furniture, you may bring in a photograph for appraisal.

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and sparkling cider and chat while you wait.This program is brought to you in partnership with Harbour Pointe Retirement & Assisted Living.
