Why Attend a Show?

5 Reasons Why You Should Attend a Show


Do you own an inherited piece of jewelry, a silver tea service, an antique clock, piece of art, or some other heirloom you’re curious about?  At the Appraisal Roadshow, you’ll have an opportunity to get a professional appraisal of its value and expert advice on what you can do with it.




1. An answer to that age old question: Is it trash or treasure?


Chances are you’ve inherited some items in your lifetime that you’ve kept but you’re really not sure what to do with.  They might be at home collecting dust, but sometimes these pieces can have historical significance or be worth quite a lot of money.  Sentimental value is important, but it’s also critical to know what exactly you have in your inventory and how much it’s worth.

The Appraisal Roadshow is a forum aimed at answering this burning question for each and every item we appraise.









2. Valuable market information


Depending on what members of the audience bring to the show, you might find that something you own is actually worth more than you thought.  That might mean you should increase your insurance coverage to make sure the piece is adequately protected. Or, it might mean that now is a great time to sell.  Whatever you choose, it’s important to be well-informed.



When you attend a show, you’ll get insights from our experts about market trends and what’s hot (or not) right now.
