Congresbury Village Hall Valuation Event
28th February 2019
Wednesday 27th February saw Clevedon Salerooms valuers, Director Toby Pinn MRICS and Mark Huddleston attending Congresbury Village Hall for a successful valuation afternoon raising money for the village hall. Organisers had thoughtfully created two ways to donate to the fund: a valuation event (with donations made to have items valued) and a gifting event, where local residents donated their items to be sold for charity, free of charge, on behalf of the village hall fund. Of course, there was the obligatory coffee and cake for sale as well...
Some of the incredibly generous donation included a 14ct gold pocket watch inset with diamonds and rubies, an Omega silver pocket watch, a George III 1/3 guinea coin, a German oak bracket clock and even two Bobby Jones golf 'flicker books' . The wide variety of items seen ranged from pre-World War I aviation scrapbooks to a pitchfork!
Items will be auctioned across two sales - the majority on 21st March and select highlights on 13th June, with all proceeds donated to the Congresbury Village Hall fund.
23rd May Interiors & Collectables Auction
With the television cameras present for an episode of ‘The Antiques Road Trip’, along with competing contestants Angus Ashworth and Arusha ‘Roo’ Irvine (and of course their lots!), the saleroom was buzzing as usual, and over 90% of lots sold - as is standard at this saleroom.
