I went there when it was in Chicago and they told me Old Realtors have no value. I beg your pardon!

I went to the Road Show when they hit Portland.  It's a long wait, but you talk to interesting people, and see interesting things.  I brought in a "cloth book" that was about 100 years old.  They didn't even price it :-(

Carla - a 100 year old cloth book - cool.  Yeah, I think the 80:10,000 ratio is a bit tough!

Hi Ellen,

I love Antique Road Show.

It makes me want to go out and scour the countryside for treasures that will set me up for life! I'm really happy when my estimated value is on target. My husband and I guess the value and whoever comes closest without going over wins.

Have a great evening...

Ellen -- I love watching ARS and often watched the UK version when I lived over in Ireland.  It's especially fun to watch how the people react when they find out their great aunt Mamie's silver teapot is priceless!!
