Series Description

Fans of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW have wrestled with these weighty questions since the hit PBS series debuted eight years ago. Beginning Wednesday, January 19, 2005 the producers of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW proudly present this brand-new weekly series of 26 half-hour programs, revealing the answers to What happens to the stuff after the owners leave the convention hall? ... Where can I get the best deals? ... What are the hot collectibles right now? ... What do the appraisers collect? and more!

Hosted by ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's Lara Spencer with correspondent Clay Reynolds, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI is the perfect complement to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW — a digest that gives viewers tools to enrich and improve their own treasure hunts. A cross-country excursion with stops in America's top antiques shows and auctions. Candid conversations and trade secrets from ROADSHOW experts. Unsolved mysteries surrounding stolen works of art and surprising updates on treasures from past ROADSHOW episodes. Series release date: 1/19/2005

Program Description

The trail of a nineteenth-century southern basket, appraised at ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's Charleston, South Carolina event in 2000 for $4,000 to $6,000, leads ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds to Colonial Williamsburg. Up North in Milton, Massachusetts, four experts conduct an unusual estate appraisal at the former home of an eclectic — and eccentric — collector. Next, folk art expert Allan Katz guides viewers through a collection of over 100 vintage tobacco store figures, including several variations on the traditional Indian. Then appraiser Andy Ourant talks to Clay about the pinnacle of durable and desirable toy collectibles — the one-of-a-kind Buddy L express truck and pedal car — which could bring a very serious $50,000 to $100,000 at auction.
