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

Find out what having a baby has to do with a Tiffany lamp, appraised for $12,000 to $15,000 at the 1998 Richmond ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event. Then it's back to school when ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds attends Beth Szescila's class on "Appraisal Tips for the Savvy Collector" at Rice University and watches as students test their knowledge at an antiques mall. Clay also gets the scoop from expert Karen Augusta on smart shopping for vintage clothing, from 1950s poodle skirts to designer couture. From expert David Rago comes the fascinating tale of Biloxi's eccentric pottery genius George Ohr, whose 10,000-piece collection was bought by a collector some fifty years after Ohr's death — with the exception of some documented masterpieces, lost and promising to bring lump sums in the high six figures if found.
