It was the original Antiques Roadshow that got people interested and excited about those old treasures hiding in their closets and gathering dust on the shelves, now it is the Knox Antiques and Collectibles Show and Treasure Sale.
The folks involved with the Knox Vision Society at Knox Presbyterian Church in Sooke are holding a one-day show and sale on Saturday, Nov. 5 featuring Michael Rice from Fenian Antiques.
Rice will be available from 1 p.m. to evaluate your treasures. He lists his favourites as; old postcards and photographs, medals, badges and things military, old advertising, coins and early stamped envelopes.
If you would like to have your collectibles/antiques appraised it will cost you $4 per item for a maximum of three. Please do not bring paintings or works of art. If something catches Rice’s eye he may wish to purchase it. You can also purchase some of the treasures on sale and sit down for tea, coffee and goodies.
Knox Presbyterian Church is located at 2110 Church Road.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
