ANTIQUE APPRAISAL ROAD SHOW IN HARBOR SUNDAY

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

The Pacific Coast Antique Mall in Harbor will once again be sponsoring an a fundraising antique road show from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday featuring nine experienced appraisers to appraise antiques and collectibles.

According to organizer Lynn Truman, each person may have a maximum of three items appraised for a fee of $5 per item. All funds raised will be donated to the South Coast Humane Society in memory of Truman's little Buddy, her devoted schnauzer, who during his lifetime raised more than $30,000 for charities.

All sales made from the humane society booth at the gallery currently go directly to the care of the animals at the shelter, approximately $3,000 so far. "I think of my little Buddy daily," Truman said. "He is always with me in spirit, and now he is the Humane Society's ‘little Buddy,' as well."

The antique mall, which has more than 700 vendors, offers everything from jewelry, small collectibles, to antique fishing equipment and rare antique furnishings, some extremely rare pieces.

Truman, who opened the mall four years ago, offered a similar appraisal event last year, which drew more than 500 enthusiastic participants. She has increased the number of appraisers this year in an effort to help decrease the time in the lines.

In addition to the excitement of the appraisal road show, there will food vendors and music. Carl Rovainen and his Jefferson State Boondock Band will be on hand to liven up the process.

  • Oil, European stocks gain as volatility eases
    Oil and stocks steadied on Wednesday and the dollar eased, as investors looked forward to less volatile trading, a day after world stocks recorded one of their biggest rallies in years and oil prices swung in a 10 percent range. After a strong start to the week for risk assets like stocks and oil the mood was a little more cautious, with so-called safe haven assets like the Japanese yen, government bonds and gold all moving higher. Investors will watch oil as a barometer of broader market sentiment on Wednesday, in particular how a proposal from top exporters Russia and Saudi Arabia on Tuesday to freeze output is greeted by Iran, which was absent from the talks and is determined to raise production.
  • With recession lights amber, brittle markets vulnerable to all shocks
    Financial markets that predicted eight of the last six recessions may be yet be wrong again, but market stress itself is now part of the calculus and leaves the world more open to left-field shocks. Given the violence of this year's slump in equities, where more than $8 trillion has been wiped off global stock market values, it is remarkable how few economists still see recession as the most likely outcome.
