St. James hosts Heirloom Evaluation Day

Do you wonder how much your family heirlooms are worth?

Come to the St. James Parish Heirloom Evaluation Day from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday to find out. The event takes place at the St. James Church Memorial Center, 1275 B St. in Davis.

Experts representing De Luna Jewelers, Third Street Jewelers, Main Street Antiques, Hastings Back Porch and other community businesses will evaluate your family antiques, jewelry or other treasures and advise you on their book or market value.

Their estimations are advisory and are not meant to serve for insurance purposes.

Bring your jewelry, artwork (including Native American and Asian), household collectibles and coins, sports and military memorabilia, and small antiques for evaluation.

In exchange for an heirloom evaluation, St. James requests a donation of $25 for the first two items and $45 for three items.

If you choose to donate any of your valuables to St. James, your monetary donation request will be waived, and you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation.

The Rev. Bong Rojas, pastor of St. James Church, said the Heirloom Evaluation Day will help the parish enhance its endowment efforts, as all proceeds will benefit the St. James Memorial Center Building Fund.

“The Memorial Center is a large, multi-functional building that has allowed our parishioners to better nurture their own faith while strengthening community partnerships,” Bong said, “such as hosting the interfaith winter shelter for the homeless in December.“

The Heirloom Evaluation Day allows interested parishioners and community members to donate evaluated items toward the silent auction at St. James’ ninth annual Wine Tasting and Auction.

The event will run from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the St. James Memorial Center and features local wineries and restaurants. Tickets are $30 per person, available at the parish office.

The silent auction will feature a portion of a large collection of Lladros donated by Narcissa Peña’s estate.

Due to limited space, only donated items valued at greater than $50 will be included in the silent auction or sold via online auction.

For more information about either event, call the parish office at (530) 756-3636.
