“Virginia Valuables”: Where “Antiques Roadshow” meets “History Detectives”
Virginia Valuables returns on March 12 at 8:00 p.m. with all new appraisals from our local experts.
This one-hour special, produced by the Community Idea Stations, captures the joy – and disappointment – as local appraisers meet with central Virginia residents and discover if their treasures have more than just sentimental value.
In the style of Antiques Roadshow, Virginia Valuables pairs local experts with central Virginia residents and their treasures – all while the cameras roll. Our appraisers put on their detective hats to help reveal the stories behind the treasures. Guests on the program were identified through the Community Idea Stations Appraisal Fair, hosted at the station over two days in September, 2011. From more than 370 entries, 50 were chosen to meet the appraisers. The result is our very own Virginia Valuables.
The appraisal team consists of Jay Gates, III, Christine Corbin, Lex Reeves, and Mark Palmgren.
This episode of Virginia Valuables is the second of three specials, with third one airing in this summer. On this episode, highlights include a signed Beatles picture with an unusual personal item, a writing box, a ball pendant watch, and a set of toys trains.
