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.
