TV ANTIQUES expert Thomas Plant and his colleagues from SAS Auctions will be holding a valuation afternoon at St Nicolas Church Hall on Thursday, September 10, to raise funds for the Newbury Weekly News’ Over 80s’ Parcel Fund.
Between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, a team of experts from SAS will be on hand to assess any bits and pieces you might have lying around the house and which you think may have some value.
You can have up to three items valued for £5, which goes to the parcel fund.
You can bring more than three items and pay more, but no large items, such as furniture.
And if you choose to sell anything through SAS, it will also donate a percentage of its commission to the parcel fund.
Do you have a piece of pottery sitting in the house that you think might be worth something? Or maybe you’ve inherited an item and you’re not sure of its value?
From postcards to biscuit tins, to old toys or jewellery and watches, it’s always worth getting an expert opinion. You might be in for a pleasant surprise.
Thomas Plant sees many people turning up at the Greenham Park offices of SAS with boxes of items and often finds a few hidden treasures.
And as one of the team on the BBC One show Flog It, he is constantly amazed by the bits and bobs people bring along thinking they have no value.
Thomas said: “We see a great deal of pieces that have been bought or acquired by people in the local area.
“A valuation day such as this is a terrific opportunity to find out more about a particular item as well as to raise money for a great cause.”
Have a clear out and whether you want to sell the items on or just find out what they are worth, why not bring them along to St Nicolas church hall next Thursday.
