Antique Roadshow comes to town

Have you ever wondering what the story is behind Grandma’s old side table, Pop’s toy car or Nanna’s silver spoons?

Maybe you have something of age or value and you’d like it appraised?

Well, the upcoming District Council of Mallala Antiques Roadshow event just might be the answer.

In a first for our district, the popular television show format is coming to Two Wells, with antique expert, Paul Bartlett, set to host an antiques and collectables show and tell on Tuesday October 27.

One local resident who is keen to learn more about a few family and long-held items is Bev Molloy.

“I think this event will be a surprise and everyone I’ve spoken to is really excited about it,” Bev said.

“It’s something different.”

Bev, 72, is still working out which items she wants to take along and has a necklace given to her as a child, a ceramic doll, a book and a little dog statue picked out already.

“This little dog has sat on our mantle piece for as long as I can remember,” Bev said.

“Mum said Dad bought it at Coles at the Port before they were engaged and paid 2 shilling 6 pence for it.

“All of these things have been in the house for as long as I can remember.

“It will be interesting to see what, if anything they’re worth.”

Presented by the Two Wells Library Service, the free event, including afternoon tea, will be held at the Two Wells Bowls Club from 1pm.

Bookings are essential, contact the library on 8520 2100 to secure your place now.
