Coin and Jewelry Buying Event in Alliston

Coming to Alliston is Finley’s! Make an appointment for a private, one-on-one meeting. We appraise and purchase exquisite jewelry, gemstones, timepieces, coins, banknotes, and other collectibles. No cost assessments and no pressure to buy. You may bring as many things as you wish.

We carefully consider each item’s different qualities, taking note of the maker, materials, age, and market attractiveness. Our offers are based on the market’s demand and the items’ resale worth.

This event is only hosted by appointment in order to protect your health and safety. As long as there are no more than 5 people in the room at once, you’re welcome to bring one more person with you. We will be properly cleaning the table and chair after each session and ensuring general cleanliness as we do the appraisal with a plexiglass barrier.

Experience the Taste of the Caribbean!

The original concept of Taste of the Caribbean was Caribbean cuisine and outdoor performances. From June to September 2022, it took place every Friday at Noel’s Nest Country Bed and Breakfast/Special Events Space.

The GTA and the surrounding community both enjoyed the weekly festivities. Taste of the Caribbean has now extended into the fall and winter months in response to popular demand. The celebration will take place at the Port McNicoll Community Centre while we wait for the weather to warm up. The fun never ends.

Nichole Noel and the Smokey Grey Band are the performers. SGB plays classic rock, soca, jazzy-blues, country, and pop music in addition to reggae, even though that is their primary musical genre.

See for Yourself and “Experience the Magic”!

When: Saturday, January 21, 2023, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
