The occasion is part of a series of events called The Grand Antiques Tour, hosted by Inspired Villages, the last operator living behind Gifford Lea. The tour will also continue to other Inspired Villages communities throughout the fall.
Residents of Gifford Lea and the surrounding area have been invited to attend the event to meet Christina for a free assessment to see if they have a secret fortune.
Guests are welcome to enjoy complimentary refreshments and take the opportunity to socialize with other guests and residents, while sharing stories about the items they bring.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to receive a tour of the village and its model houses.
Christina Trevanion, commented: “I can’t wait to assess some interesting items at Gifford Lea, the last time I visited there were some amazing finds.
“The community has grown so much over the past few years, so I’m excited to see what the other delicacies will bring this time around.
“Sometimes the smallest things can be worth something and it’s wonderful to see the surprise on people’s faces!
“If you’ve ever wondered how much the painting you inherited is worth or intrigued to find out more about that little ornament you’ve had longer than you remember, then come on, I can’t wait to see you.”
