What a day!
WSBE Rhode Island PBS
Many thanks to all of you who brought your great "treasures"! Some waits were very long and not everyone got the news they hoped to receive about their item, but judging by the emails and calls we received, you had fun, learned interesting things about your own and others' items, and met some terrific people in the lines and at the tables. We did, too! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. Our film crew captured hours of video and so many fascinating stories - some of which will be part of the TV show coming your way in late spring.
Sincere thanks to the appraisers and researchers who committed time and expertise, and fulfilled their roles with grace and professionalism in the face of unexpected challenges.
And as for our fleet of amazing volunteers, there simply is not a better group of devoted individuals! Thank you all so much!
Here's a little tease from the event - two abbreviated segments (which is why we call it a tease). Full stories - including the values - will appear in a few weeks. Check the Gallery Page for pictures and more video.
