Annual Charity Valuation Day
In 2004 Canberra Antiques Centre hosted it’s first annual charity antiques & collectables appraisal day. Donate Life Australia (the organ donation organisation), has been the sole beneficiary of the thousands of dollars we raised between 2004 and 2014.
Each February Canberra Antiques Centre’s dealers donated their time and expertise to discuss/research and appraise the treasures (or otherwise!) brought along, with a $5 per item donation aiding Organ Donation Awareness. Our most recent appraisal day in 2014 raised $750 for the Organ Donation cause.
For the time being, our Valuation Days have been ‘put on ice’, but we may re-introduce them some time in the future. THANK YOU to everyone who took part.

Michael Doulton Visits Canberra Antiques
On Sunday July 18 2010, Upwell Antiques, Canberra Antiques Centre's Royal Doulton specialists, hosted a special event with a very special guest...Michael Doulton, 5th generation descendent of Royal Doulton founder John Doulton.
Michael mingled with around one hundred collectors and enthusiasts, discussing Doulton past, present and future and personally signing special pieces purchased on the day.
Our guests enjoyed complimentary wine, orange juice and nibblies in a buzzy atmosphere which allowed lots of new friendships to be made and stories to be shared.
The day was a huge success, prompting Michael Doulton to suggest we repeat the event. We hope to! For more details...WATCH THIS SPACE.
