A number of our members met today bringing a variety of bags, boxes and parcels with the sole intention of having family heirlooms valued by two professional auctioneers.
The valuers were kept busy from just before 10 am until the final keepsake had been valued just after 1.30 pm.
The items ranged from fob watches to oil paintings and everything in between. Despite some people having a long wait to be seen everyone took the time to catch up with friends. The whole event was helped along by the tea, coffee and cakes supplied by an enthusiastic team.
We are grateful to Sharon Rupp for all her organising skills and the sleepless nights she experienced worrying that it would turn out OK. We shouldn’t forget that these events don’t just happen – they take effort, commitment and dedication. Thank you Sharon!
