Belmont Village Hosts Road Show —An Antiques Showcase Event
Have you ever wondered about a knickknack that has been passed down through the generations—what was it used for, or what is it worth? That is what fans and collectors tune-in for and line-up to discover during the famously popular Antiques Road Show series that airs on PBS. Whether the value is sentimental, financial, or simply entertainment, finding out about the items stored in “grandma’s attic” is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
Belmont Village Senior Living of Hollywood Hills will host its own version of the hit TV show from 1-4 p.m., Sunday, March 1.
Certified antique appraisal experts Carol Edwards, Carol Mc-Andrew and Paul McConnell of Life Transitions Inc. will give their off-the-cuff appraisals during individual, five-minute sessions. The free event is open to the public and coffee and tea will be available.
“We are inviting the community to bring their antiques to Belmont Village, but we do ask that our guests do not bring more than two items and that they limit the size to what they can carry,” said Brenda Hans, executive director for Belmont Village Hollywood. “We want everyone to receive sufficient appraisal time, and limiting the number of items allows us to accommodate more people, which means more fun for all.”
Carol Edwards has worked as a generalist appraiser for the PBS show and she and her team have more than 50 years combined experience in antique appraisals. Each appraiser will have a table and their research material at the ready as they meet with each guest.
“We are looking forward to this event—it’s always exciting to see antiques that test our knowledge,” said Edwards. “If we discover any item of great value, we will definitely give the owner some information about how and where they can sell their item, if that is what they are interested in doing. We encourage people to bring fine art and ask that they do not bring antique weapons.”
“We’re always looking for ways to be of service to our local community and to create opportunities to involve our residents and families with the surrounding neighborhoods,” said Hans. “We think that people will find this activity both interesting and helpful.” The Belmont staff is anticipating a lot of interest and a large turnout for antique appraisals.”
Belmont Village of Hollywood Hills is at 2051 N. Highland Ave.
