Antiques Road Show

Last weekend my mom and I went to the Antiques Road show. It was quite interesting.
There were 5,000 people, but we were assigned different times to show up - ours was at 10 a.m. - so we got there at 9:30 as they requested, and at 10:00 we started moving towards the production room (where they make the appraisals).

We got in there at 10:45 and we were out of there by 11:30 so it was not bad at all. There were no long lines outside in the hot sun, and the only place it became a little "sticky" was in the appraisal room where people did not know which line started where, and there was a lot of moving around.

I read in the paper this morning that there some items from $120,000 to $150,000 that were appraised. WE did did not have any of those. :)My mom took a cast iron turkey piggy bank that was circa 1920 and worth $100.00. It was an interesting experience and I had always wanted to go to one of them. The program will run on public TV starting in 2008 - but no definite date was given..
