The Lynnwood Senior Center, 19000 44th Ave W., plans its Lynnwood Appraisal Roadshow, 1-3 p.m. June 5, in partnership with Harbour Pointe Retirement & Assisted Living.
Bring your heirlooms to see what they're worth with expert Mac McVay, a third-generation licensed antiques collector and dealer. McVay started appraising at age 11 when neighbors paid him 25 cents to make sure their garage sale prices were fair.
Appetizers and sparkling cider will be served.
Cost is $8 for Lynnwood Senior Center members, $13 for non-members. Register at 425-670-5050 and reference course 46728.
