Cash in the attic?

Romanoff Estate Buyers of Victoria returns for its third treasure-hunting expedition at Thunderbird Mall.

PORT HARDY—Ever wondered if those strange old treasures in your basement, attic or garage would be worthy of a spot on the popular PBS series, Antique Road Show?

Well, a very similar opportunity is coming in Port Hardy Nov. 16 and 17 when Romanoff Estate Buyers of Victoria returns for its third treasure-hunting expedition at Thunderbird Mall. They have added an extra show Nov. 18 at the Old School in Port McNeill.

John Newman and Susan Bracher will be assessing and buying gold jewelry, silverware and tea services, coins and coin collections, old watches, film cameras, militaria and musical instruments.

Along with Paul Freeman of the Romanoff Antiques store, they will also provide evaluations of items local residents may be curious about.

“Our business is always interesting,” said Newman. “You never know what sorts of things people will bring in for us to look at.”

The event will also serve as a benefit for the Gazette Hamper Fund, with $1 from each gram of gold purchased during the shows donated to the fund.

“We are always happy to do evaluations and folks should feel free to bring along anything they are curious about,” said Bracher. “It’s a great reason to take a peek through your jewelry box, attic and even garage.”

And who knows … you may just go home with some extra cash in your pocket just in time for the holidays.
