Flog It! presenter Paul Martin has teamed up with a team of experts from Grand Auctions to host a two-day valuations event in the centre of Staines-upon-Thames.
Martin, an acknowledged expert on high quality furniture, will share his knowledge, interest and experience in the Antiques Roadshow-type event to be held in the Market Square on Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 September 2017. While the Grand Auctions team will be on hand to advise on paintings, prints, sculptures, Asian art, silver, gold, ceramics, glass, jewellery, watches and clocks of distinction. Probate and insurance valuations will also be offered.
Folkestone-based Grand Auctions is one of the country’s premier auctioneers and valuers. Jonathan Riley of Grand Auctions said the company was selected to organise the event on September 16 and 17 thanks to its contacts and reputation within the antiques trade in the country. “Not only were we were delighted to be chosen to host the valuation but also to be joined by the TV presenter and furniture expert Paul Martin. We hope people will flock to the event and I look forward to unearthing some hidden gems.”
The Valuation Days Event is one of many events planned by the recently launched Staines-upon-Thames Business Improvement District (BID). Stephen Gould, Vice Chairman of the BID, said “The Valuation Days Event is something completely new for Staines-upon-Thames. It is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to come from far and wide to have their prize possessions valued by Paul Martin and the experts from Grand Auctions for free. You can also choose to take your items to auction on a no sale-no fee basis”.
