Back by popular demand, Touchstones Nelson will once again host an Antiques Appraisal Clinic on Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21.

Special guest Peter Blundell, of Vernon-based Blundell Art and Antique Appraisals, will also be returning.

Blundell will be performing verbal opinions of market value on antiques and collectibles, with some exceptions.

He cannot appraise jewelry, coins, stamps, guns, and wristwatches. However, pocket watches and swords are acceptable.

Individuals who wish to have large furniture pieces assessed are asked to bring in a portion of the pieces, such as a drawer along with a photograph, and the item’s measurements.

Fifteen minute assessments will be scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. on June 20 and 10:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 21.

The fee for an appointment is $35 (for Touchstones members) and $45 (non-members). Spectator tickets are available for $5 (free for members).

All registrants must pre-register and pay in advance. Partial proceeds benefit public programming at Touchstones Nelson.
