If you’ve always wondered what that treasure, quirky collectable or piece of jewellery might be worth, you can find out for free at a special antiques valuation event taking place at value garden centre Retford & Gainsborough by Cherry Lane.

Running in conjunction with Golding Young Auctioneers & Valuers, Cherry Lane’s Bygones with Value valuation and auction consignment event will be held at the Retford & Gainsborough Garden Centre on Saturday 17th June from 11am to 3pm.

Expert valuer and managing director of Golding Young, Colin Young, will be on hand to assess your treasures for free – and potentially unleash a windfall. Colin has over 35 years’ experience and has sold over two million lots during his career. He is a regular on television’s Bargain Hunt. Joining Colin will be John Leatt, who has 30 years’ experience including overseeing many marquee and country house sales and taking part in Golding Young’s worldwide antiques valuation programme featuring collections across Europe and America.

Colin Young of Golding Young, said: “I hope the people of Retford, Gainsborough and surrounding towns will take advantage of this opportunity at Cherry Lane. With a cost-of-living crisis upon us, it’s a simple way to turn unwanted objects into cash.

“Delve into the attic and under the bed and dig out any antique or vintage wares. Often it’s the thing you least expect that turns out to be valuable. Every week at Golding Young, we discover valuable items that have been long forgotten, found in charity shops or picked up at car boot sales for pennies. Maybe 17th June could be your lucky day.”

Leigh Lunn, garden centre manager at Retford & Gainsborough by Cherry Lane, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting our Bygones with Value valuation and auction consignment event with Golding Young. This is a great opportunity to dig out those heirlooms and other items which are stowed away at home and have them professionally assessed. As an independent garden centre, our shelves are bursting with value and this event is an opportunity to see if any of our customers’ household items are of value too. Who knows what priceless items may get brought in here at Cherry Lane?!”

Retford & Gainsborough Garden Centre by Cherry Lane is located on Bar Road, Saundby Beckingham DN22 9EU. Free parking is available.
