This Lunch and Learn session with Don from Dragon Antiques in Cranbrook explores criteria for making challenging decisions about treasured objects, whether a “collector”, a casual acquirer or the inheritor of family heirlooms. Discover solutions to the conundrum of dealing with accumulated objects, whether in a collecting mode or a downsizing one. What types of values do collections or individual objects possess; sentimental, monetary, historical, cultural or social values all have relevance for an object and the context in which it exists.
