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

Correspondent Clay Reynolds learns how a set of illustrations by Mildred Boyle, of Little House on the Prairie fame — appraised at ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Boston for $6,000 to $8,000 — found their way back home. Then it's off to a parade where big wheels keep on turning — antiques bicycle wheels, that is — and Clay learns the finer points of collecting these pedal-powered machines. Appraiser Rosalie Sayyah shows Clay how to care for rhinestone jewelry. Then, Clay's off to visit Andreas Brown, proprietor of New York's Gotham Bookmart, for a conversation about the late Edward Gorey, eccentric illustrator, author and award-winning set designer, whose droll, gothic-themed materials are much sought after by collectors. Lastly, expert David Bonsey tells the tale of one of the FBI's most-wanted Stradivarius violins, still missing 25 years after it was stolen following a concert in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
