FULL DETAILS FROM THE  PRAIRIE  MALL  SHOPPING  CENTRE - GRANDE PRAIRIE  - ARTIQUES  ROADSHOW -  GRANDE  PRAIRIE - ALBERTA

 


 

 

 

 We are delighted to be back once again to advise the good people of Alberta by huge public demand, appearing again at the Prairie Mall Shopping Centre in Grande Prairie this spring.

The expert antiques and art appraisers from the British Artiques Roadshow will be on hand to value, and advise you about your art and antiques and those collectibles which you always dreamed might be valuable.

 

 Canadian communities have turned out to the British roadshow events in their thousands for antiques, art and collectibles appraisals at packed roadshow events right across the Dominion. In fact ever since the first ever British roadshow event was hosted fourteen years ago in Ontario, we have been sold out and the event always full.

 Roadshow antiques and art appraisal events are always sold out early here in Canada with eager people keen to find out whether great grannies heirloom is just trash or treasure. We are sure that the second antique appraisal roadshow event in Grande Priaire at the Prairie Mall Shopping Centre, will be just as successful as last years, so book your appointment early.

 Frankly, its nearly always a treasure of one kind or another that the roadshow appraiser sees and with well over $65 Million dollars worth of roadshow antiques and collectibles showing up already, the British Artiques Roadshow is looking forward to coming back to Grande Prairie to unravel some more myths and legends, appraise and value your family heirlooms and hopefully help and advise you professionally, pleasingly and without bias or prejudice.

 

 

* REMEMBER  ONCE  AGAIN  IT'S  APPOINTMENTS  ONLY  IN GRANDE PRAIRIE AT THE ROADSHOW. SO TO  AVOID  LONG  LINEUPS  &  DISSAPOINTMENT, BOOK EARLY

ABOUT  OUR  GRANDE  PRAIRIE  ALBERTA  ROADSHOW  for 2013 &  OUR  ART  &  ANTIQUES  EXPERT  APPRAISERS:

 

Roadshow experts Maureen Wickham

 

 

 

  Maureen Wickham is Canada's very own Doyen of the Antiques World. A Canadian expert and personal property appraiser of great personal experience, breadth and knowledge, and not surprisingly widely internationally travelled. Maureen has an equal number of years and experience in the antiques world to share with her clients. She lectures and broadcasts on her subject and has appeared many times on Canadian television, with regular Breakfast TV appearances across the Nation.

Maureen is the Roadshow's expert antiques and collectibles appraiser and a full CPPAG member.

 Since joining the British Artiques roadshow back in 2006, fighting off stiff competition from over 100 highly qualified expert candidates who applied for the position, Maureen has advised and offered opinions to members of the general Canadian public in over twenty five North American cities. 

Her expert antiques appraisals, valuations and invaluable advise have been delivered to in excess of two thousand people conveying over four thousand six hundred possessions. 

So what antique treasure will pop up next in Grande Prairie?

 

 

 

 

  Senior Artiques roadshow appraiser, art historian, writer and TV personality, the Englishman David Freeman, has 39+ years of international experience and expertise to share with Canadians. He is both highly qualified and respected internationally as he runs one of the worlds largest independent art authentication agencies and holds down the title of being North America's busiest art appraiser.

 Labelled fondly by the media as the Treasure Finder General, his fantastic discoveries and roadshow finds across Canada now roll into the millions of dollars.

 A real life Da Vinci code art detective, David is consultant to many television shows including the hugely successful crime series CSI - the BBC's Hustle and Flog It and has been the subject himself of a Biography Channel TV programme. He writes and hosts Secret Britain and is to be both the subject of a television documentary series following his art detective work internationally and a new antiques TV entertainment series this fall.

 David is the author of a brand new book detailing the millions of dollars of fantastic treasures and stories found during the decade of Canadian roadshow treasure trail events across the Dominion and he has just completed his first historical novel called the Oakum Gate.

 The British Artiques roadshow kicked off its ever popular Canadian appraisals roadshow tour of Canada last year over on the east coast of Canada with antiques and art appraisal roadshows being held in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Moving on to Ontario and then into Western Canada and Alberta..

 With well over a decade of antiques roadshow style appraisal events across Canada behind us, the British Artiques roadshow and its expert appraisers were pleased to be asked back to Alberta in particular and we look forward to a great roadshow of antiques appraisals hosted by the Prairie Mall for the Grande Prairie and Albertan community this spring.

 Canadian communities have turned out to the British roadshow events in their thousands for antiques, art and collectibles appraisals at packed roadshow events across the Dominion. In fact ever since the first ever British roadshow event was hosted twelve years ago in Ontario, we have been packed. Roadshow antiques and art appraisal events are always sold out early here in Canada with eager people keen to find out whether great grannies heirloom is just trash or treasure. We are sure that the Prairie Mall antique appraisal roadshow event will be just as successful as ever.

 Frankly, its nearly always a treasure of one kind or another that the roadshow appraiser sees and with nearly $60 Million dollars worth of roadshow antiques and collectibles showing up already, the British artiques roadshow is looking forward to coming back to Grande Prairie to unravel some more myths and legends, appraise and value your family heirlooms and hopefully help and advise you professionally, pleasingly without bias or prejudice.

With the information already leaked to the press that the artiques roadshow was coming to the Prairie Mall shopping centre this spring, we're told that the phone has not stopped ringing at the Centre since last time.
