Bring out the knickknacks, tchotchkes and heirlooms – the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives is holding its annual Antiques Road Show fundraiser on Saturday February 15 from 10am to 3pm at Trail Bay Mall, Sechelt. Professional appraisers will be on hand to assess the value of antiques or collectables (they don’t have to be old). Past discoveries include an Emily Carr pastel, a gold pocket watch, a 1940 comic book, a William Kurelek painting and a church pulpit (on loan?). Of all of the above items the comic book was potentially the most valuable. Event proceeds will help support the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives.
