How it Works

This year's Carolina Collectibles day takes place Saturday, October 15 at PBS Charlotte. For a donation of $125 to support PBS Charlotte, you will receive two vouchers to have two items evaluated. For a donation of $150, you will receive three vouchers to have 3 items evaluated. For more information please call PBS Charlotte Member Services at 704-330-5939 or email memberservices@wtvi.org.

Specialists from Leland Little Auctions will be at PBS Charlotte to provide verbal valuations on hundreds of items. You can select a preference for your time of day when you make your donation. We will provide you an appointment time to arrive at our studio around two weeks before the event date. Seating will be available inside as you wait. 

Please note, vouchers will NOT be mailed. You will receive the vouchers when you check-in the day of the event.

You are encouraged to take notes on what the specialist tells you about your item (valuations are NOT intended to be used for insurance purposes). Typically, valuations last about 5 – 8 minutes with the specialist, depending on the item.

Check your attic for any family heirlooms including fine art, furniture, decorative art, Asian art, fine jewelry, coins, toys, etc. (If you’re not sure, bring it!)
