**CANCELLED** Almonte Lectures: End of Road for Antiques? at Almonte United Church

Mar 27



From television, to radio, to columns in magazines and newspapers and appraisals, antiques have been part of Janet Carlile's life for over 40 years and it’s fair to say over that time things have changed. In this lecture she’ll chat about appraisals but also about the world of antique buying, selling, dealing, the black market and auctions, as well as insurance, selling, downsizing, and investing and where the antiques trade is heading in Canada, how it has changed and what the future holds- knowing there is a distinct difference in attitude to antiques in most other parts of the world.

We may even answer that ever present question, “what am I going to do with all this old stuff?”
