To start things off, we wanted to tell you about an exciting event we have on Sunday 16th September that you won't want to miss out on. We are pleased to announce we will be hosting our own version of the Antiques Roadshow in our car park. We will have seven antiques specialists, including a special guest from BBC's Antiques Road Trip, who have donated their time to come and valuate any items brought along on the day.

The shop will be open as usual from 10.00 to 16.00, and the event will take place between 11.00 and 15.00.
Entry is free, and valuations will cost £1. All proceeds will be donated

We have had a number of items donated from kind members of the public to be sold on the day. All proceeds will go to our two selected charities.
If you would like to donate something to be sold on the day, please contact our centre on 01751 472710 or pop in and talk to our members of staff Nicola, Rob, Charles or Yvette.
From Friday 27th July to Sunday 29th July, we celebrated our Grand Opening Weekend. The three day event was a huge success, and was a great opportunity for the owner, staff, dealers and members of the public to come together and enjoy a common interest. It was great to see so many people coming along to celebrate, and getting involved with our quiz. The response has been overwhelming, and we wanted to thank everyone who came down to see us.
This month's theme is GLASS, and we have a wonderful selection to compliment it, we will be displaying some wonder glass items again shortly so keep a look out this time it will be "Glass Lamp Shades" in beautiful bright colours.
We have a beautiful collection of decanters in all shapes and sizes. The perfect addition to a study or bar. The collection in the middle comes with an amazing wood container that really adds something to the set.
This glass dish would make a magnificent table ornament, and catches the eye of anyone who walks by. The craftmanship on this is beautiful.
This selection of vases stand out with their amazing colour. Available together, or individually. (However we think they look best as a set)
This adorable glass owl jar is something special. It would be the ideal treat for any animal lover, or make a great sweet jar for the kids. This unique decanter stands out for it's rather interesting shape, but also for the glass plane inside.
A wonderful piece that will stand out on any bar. Add a little more colour to your life with either of these vases, or this truly stand-out decanter!
That was just a small selection of the glassware we have in store, and everyday brings a new surprise. If anything here draws your eye, don't hesitate, because it might be gone
PICKERING WAR WEEKEND
From Friday 12th October to Sunday 14th October, Pickering will be hosting it's Annual War Weekend, and we at Pickering Antiques are preparing the store for an amazing weekend. We will have more information in the coming weeks about the event we are planning, but we wanted to let you know in advance that our dealers will be stocking up our store for the weekend. So if you want to pick up a great antique or two, you won't want to miss out on that weekend.
There will also be parking available for the War Weekend with a charge of £5.00 per day from 9am to 5pm.
And that wraps up this month's newsletter. We wanted to thank everyone for coming in and supporting our new centre. We have had so many wonderful people come in to visit us, and are pleased to say that business is booming.
If you are able to visit our next event on Sunday 16th September, we look forward to seeing you, and hope you have a pleasant surprise with those hidden relics you bring down for a valuation!
Thank you, and have a great day from all the staff at Pickering Antiques.
