Auld things prove popular for church

By Kirsty Brown

St Andrew’s Church in Turriff hosted two valuation days with Attic Antiques recently.

The valuation days have proven popular in previous years as people come along with their collectibles and various ‘auld things’ which they have in their home, and this year’s event was no different.

The valuating team spoke to almost 100 people who were curious to find out exactly what they had in their home across the two days of the event.

The event raised £350 for the church’s funds.

The valuators shared their insight on various items with household names, like Lalique and Moorcroft, as well as on some more unusual items.

Amongst the more unusual items shown at the event was a gun dating back to the early 1800s, which was recovered from a chimney in Edinburgh 1960.

Some of those attending the event also had the opportunity to sell their items if it caught the valuator’s eye.

Attic Antiques’ Robert Cook said: “Both days were a great success with lots of nice surprises for those who came along. We’re ecstatic to have raised so much for St Andrew’s Church, the people of Turriff are a generous lot!”
