BUDDING David Dickinsons can find out whether their family heirlooms are worth a fortune or are "cheap as chips" during a free antique valuation day at Spitalfields Market today (Thursday).

Expert valuers will be casting a critical eye over the prized possessions of visitors to the event, which will run alongside the usual Thursday antiques market, from 11am.

Event organiser Michael Collins said: "We will have three, expert valuers on hand and they are unrivalled in their field of expertise.

"They will offer free, unbiased assessments of treasured possessions, be they Rembrandts or remnants, Monets or no moneys.

"Who knows what we may come across during the event? I've never ceased to be amazed by some of the items that people have in their possession, quite often they are completely unaware of how rare and valuable some items can be."

TV antiques expert Tim Hogarth, from David Dickinson's Real Deal will be joined by Tony Johns and Nicki Rodgers.

Old Spitalfields Market manger Andrew Sparrow said: "The Thursday antiques market has gained a reputation of being one of London's premier antiques events and attracts an ever-growing number of shoppers and collectors

"We are hoping that this free valuation day will help some of our customers find a priceless heirloom; something that could really change their lives.
