The British Artiques Roadshow is quite unique, bringing expertise and advice to people across Canada who may normally not have that opportunity. The success of these public service untelevised roadshow appraisal events have been all about people, Canadians living the dream, keen to learn all about their family heirlooms, their art and antique items that they have collected over the years or inherited from the family and it's all about education.

The success of the roadshows is all down to you, the great Canadian public who turn out in your droves to see us and get impartial advise that makes the British Artiques Roadshow such a dramatic and entertaining success.

 It's not at all surprising that the British Artiques roadshow events across Canada are massively oversubscribed with so many Canadians wanting to learn all about their family heirlooms and treasured family possessions. The call for expert appraisals and valuations of a vast array of different items has attracted widespread media attention, particularly when the treasure found across Canada to date by the antiques experts is now valued at over fifty nine million dollars and still rising!

 *But rest assured, unlike some appraisers, we have no interest or intention of buying anything from you. We are here to give you the best advice we possibly can the benefit of our years of experience and give you as much information as possible in the time we have

 The Artiques roadshow brings with it a unique blend of international expertise and a very special 'wow' factor. Add to that recipe the rare opportunity for the community to meet our expert advisors & appraisers first hand and learn all about family heirlooms and treasures and maybe solve a mystery or two along the way. It's a rare opportunity to finally prove for once and for all some of those ancient family myths and legends including busting the one that perhaps Grannies treasure didn't come over on the Mayflower after all!

Camilla and Karlyle Robinson

 

 Camilla and Karlyle Robinson missed their skating lessons, both developing strange & sudden illnesses, just to get to the Barrie roadshow. Their carved wooden candlestick with the distinctive crown headed wrought iron pin was important to them but was it, Buccaneer or Pioneer?
Pirate it may be girls but it's still an antique of the future.
