Many of us have pondered the value of some of our hidden gems: paintings, jewelry, oriental objects — items that have been in the family for years. Now is your chance to find out if you’re a millionaire!

Local appraisers Jim Vitanza (Peregrine Galleries), R. J. Friedmann and Sherry Laferriere will be on hand to give free appraisals for up to three of your treasured items at the Antique Appraisal Fair from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 18 at Alexander Gardens Senior Living, 2120 Santa Barbara St.

Participants must made reservations by calling Kathy Yuill at 805.682.9644 or e-mailing
