While the Lake Havasu City Museum of History usually hosts a showing of a movie made in Havasu at its September meeting, something different will happen this season.
The Havasu Antique Roadshow is set for Sept. 13 at the museum.
Appraiser David Bolster will be on hand to evaluate antiques and collectibles. Bolster has spent 62 years collecting antiques and collectibles and has been working with nonprofit organizations with his own style of fundraising in the “Antiques Roadshow” format as featured on the Public Broadcasting System.
Bolster has been offering appraisals at the Mohave County Senior Center in Lake Havasu City for many years. He has been a member of two American appraisal organizations, has written several articles in regional and national antique trade magazines. In addition, Bolster hosted his own monthly educational appraisal show on TV 45 for six years.
Bolster said, “Most everyone has items of value like an important autograph hidden somewhere that can be sold if they only knew what they had or what it is worth.”
Folks can bring their treasures to the museum to be appraised at the Sept. 13 program. Items are limited to two per person. There will be a $5 charge for the appraisal of two items.
The center exhibit leading up to the program will feature some of the museum treasures not regularly displayed in permanent exhibits. Those wishing to bring their items in ahead of the program to be displayed can do so after Labor Day.
There is a locked display cabinet for smaller items brought to the museum to ensure their safety.
A wine and cheese reception for museum members only is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the museum, 320 London Bridge Road. The program is at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
This program is presented through funding from the Allied Arts Council of Lake Havasu City Inc.
