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

From plaster dust to price guides, Clay Reynolds tracks the trajectory of an owner who appeared at the 2002 Seattle ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event with a collection of vintage can labels found during demolition of a house and valued at $10,000 to $14,000. Expert Andy Ourant is our tour guide to the world of petroliana when ROADSHOW FYI visits the Hershey, Pennsylvania Car Show to find folks whose hearts race at the sight of vintage oil cans, gas pumps, and gas station signs. Appraiser Nancy Druckman introduces us to paper maché artist Jim Seffens who demonstrates how the ancient and accessible craft has remained largely unchanged over time. Finally, while the term "Eastlake" has become a catch-all to describe late Victorian furniture, only one piece has ever been found actually made to Charles Locke Eastlake's design specifications. Are other elusive pieces of Eastlake furniture hiding in plain sight?
