Worthmore Jewelers Holds Fourth Annual Antique Jewelry Roadshow, Two-Day Holiday Party at Midtown and Decatur Locations
Dec. 6 and 7 events to feature sessions with Worthmore’s jewelry historian, designer trunk shows, refreshments, and a festive gingerbread-house competition
Worthmore Jewelers will hold their annual Antique Jewelry Roadshow holiday parties on Dec. 6 and 7, at the Midtown (500-L3 Amsterdam Ave.) and Decatur (117 East Court Square) stores, respectively.
Community members are invited to stop by the Midtown store from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, or the Decatur store from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, with their family heirlooms or antique jewelry pieces for a free session with Worthmore Jeweler’s own jewelry historian. Sessions typically reveal item age, origin, and value estimate. *
The weekend-long holiday party will also feature several designer trunk shows, including designer Nina Nguyen showing off her most recent pieces, Leo Ingwer presenting the latest in his 1939 Antique Inspired collection, and Reactor Watch founder Jimmy Olmes discussing his bold but functional watch line.
Snacks and holiday beverages will be served throughout both events.
To continue the festivities, the event will also host two fundraising gingerbread-house making competitions, benefiting the local Lost-n-Found Youth campaign. Community members can participate by either creating a house for the competition, or by voting for their favorite house during the holiday event.
The first 25 individuals interested in competing can pick up a free gingerbread-house-kit, courtesy of Trader Joe’s, from their local Worthmore Jewelers store between Nov. 15 and Nov. 29. Completed houses should be submitted back to the stores by Dec. 4 for display and judging at the event. Attendees will then be able to purchase “votes” for their favorite gingerbread-house during the event — 5 dollars for one vote or 20 dollars for five votes — with all proceeds benefiting the local Lost-n-Found Youth campaign. Each vote will also enter the individual into a drawing for a chance to win a $250 Worthmore Jewelers gift card. Gingerbread-house competition winners will also receive a $250 Worthmore Jewelers gift card. Contest and drawing winners will be announced on Monday, Dec. 8 via Worthmore’s Facebook and Instagram profiles.
Worthmore founder and owner, Harris Botnick, says these events are just one of the many ways the jewelry retailer aims to give back to their communities during the holiday season. “We wouldn’t be here today without the support of the Decatur and Midtown communities,” said Botnick. “So we are happy to host these types of events and celebrate the holidays with them.”
*Due to overwhelming popularity of this event over the past three years, and the time required for each item evaluation, Worthmore asks that attendees limit their items to two per person, per session. Attendees are welcome to bring more than two items, but will be asked to get back in line after each two items have been valued. For those who wish to sell their evaluated pieces, Worthmore’s estate buyer will also be purchasing select items during the event.
