This weekend the Anchorage Museum hosts an "Antiques Roadshow"-type event. Appraisers from Bonhams, one of the oldest auction houses in the world, will appraise items in the categories of fine art; furniture, decorative arts and Asian art; Native American artifacts; books and manuscripts; dolls, toys and trains; and jewelry and ladies' watches.
If you think you struck gold at a garage sale or inherited a family heirloom you're curious about, 30 bucks purchases a ticket to this consignment appraisal ($25 for Anchorage Museum members). Advanced tickets required.
Bonhams will be on hand 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-6 p.m. Saturday, noon-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. Sunday. For more information and tickets, visit anchoragemuseum.org.
