Do you have a little treasure just sitting around in your home? You may have heirlooms, or found a garage sale find, and are just curious to see if they are worth anything. There is nothing as thrilling as finding out that little trinket is worth thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars! That is the thrill of the Antiques Roadshow.
The show, as fans already know, is aired on the PBS station. It started back in 1997, and is still going, stronger than ever. The concept is fairly straightforward. The show goes from state to state and people line up with their odds and ends to get them appraised by a professional. They have the person who brought in the item, talk about how they came to own it, its history if they know any of it, and they usually ask them what they think it is worth. Then it is big reveal time, is the item worth nothing or could it be worth more than your wildest dreams? A woman from New York brought in a painting recently to find out it was worth somewhere in the ballpark of $400,000 dollars! These are the types of jaw droppers that make the show worth watching.
