HOW IT WORKS
Attendees should initially keep their whole day free. You will be scheduled for an appointment time in one of the following time blocks:
9:30AM – 11:00AM OR 11:00AM – 12:30PM OR 1:30PM – 3:00PM
*Staff and volunteers break for lunch 12:30PM – 1:30PM. There will be no appointments during this time.
You will receive an “Item Voucher” for each item you choose to bring. For example, if you’d like to bring a table, and a painting, you will need two vouchers (one for the table and one for the chair). Vouchers will serve as your admission to the event.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE EVENT
Specialists from Clars Auction Gallery will be at KVIE to provide verbal valuations on hundreds of items! Specialists will be present in each of these four categories:
Fine Art Furniture and Decorative Art Asian Art Fine Jewelry
When you arrive, KVIE staff and volunteers will check you in and guide you to the appropriate specialist. Be prepared to wait in line, although ample seating will be available. You are encouraged to take notes - valuations are not intended to be used for insurance purposes. Typically, valuations last about 5 – 8 minutes with the specialist, depending on the item(s).
Can I call KVIE to get admission?
Yes, you can call KVIE Member Services Monday - Friday, 9AM - 5PM at (916) 641 - 3500. Just let our staff know that you’d like to attend Antique Valuation Day.

No, this is a KVIE event which we have been doing for the last several years. It is not the branded, Antiques Roadshow program.
Will there be anyone to help carry my items?
