Collectibles in the 21st Century
Debbie Mallory is an antique dealer and estate appraiser who has been in business for over 20 years. She owns the Sophisticated Swine, Gilman Antique Mall in Issaquah and Kirkland Antique Mall in Kirkland.
A very different program was presented by Debbie, as she brought examples of the types of collectibles drawing attention during the first part of this century. She showed a small, silver plate, “a 1750 Silver Salva, an 1860 Silver trowel in sterling silver.
Debbie learned the silver business in St. Louis before moving to Seattle, and she said anything from the Art Noveau period is a collectible. In fact, “silver is very collectible.” MORE
Ticket sales were boosted by an additional $9000 this week, pushing the total to over $63,000 as the Raffle Deadline nears. The teams of Banner Bank and Pella Windows are in the lead with over $5000 sold by each team. As Howard said, “We’ve got $40,000 to go to reach our goal of $105,000!” MORE

Thought for the Week
“An antique isn’t always as old as it’s cracked up to be.”
BATS, BROTS & BEER
Issaquah and Redmond Rousers Rotary Clubs will present an evening of fun at a baseball Oktoberfest at the NW Brewhouse & Grill in Redmond on Sunday, October 28. Clint Merriman, from the Issaquah Club, said the gathering begins 30 minutes before game time for the second game of the World Series. The tab is $75.00 per person, which includes dinner, two beverages, and entry into the prize drawing.
The drawing features a handsome Mariner jacket, signed by 22 of the players. The proceeds will go to provide Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to local schools in Issaquah and Redmond. The incidence of Sudden Cardiac Arrest creates the need for these devices, which are designed for use by people with minimal training. Contact Clint Merriman (phone 425-378-1857) or Lisa Ursino-Pavitt (phone 425-392-2719) for more details.
