Must Not Miss: Antiques Roadshow Comes to The South

In the South, we take our antiques seriously. Family heirlooms are proudly displayed in our homes and whole weekends are devoted to scouring local shops for the most unique finds. But did you ever wonder what your own piece of history is worth?

Our friends at Antiques Roadshow on PBS can help you find out this summer, when they kick off their 8-city 2013 Tour. Southern stops include Jacksonville, Knoxville, Baton Rouge, Kansas City, and Richmond.

“We’re excited that the South is such a big part of this summer’s tour and can’t wait to uncover some of the region’s treasures and hear the stories behind them,” says Antiques Roadshow executive producer Marsha Bemko. “We can’t wait to see some of the art and antiques the region is known for and are sure to have a few big surprises along the way.”

If you’re curious about the origin and value of your antiques and collectibles you have until this Monday, April 8th at 11:59PM ET to apply for two free tickets to one of the 2013 Antiques Roadshow events.  Winners are chosen at random and will each be able to have two items appraised by experts from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each appraisal event will make up three hours of programming next year on PBS, so tune in—you just might see some familiar faces!

Southern Living Editor Lindsay Bierman extends a warm welcome to Antiques Roadshow in this video:

    We are excited about the Antique Road Showing coming to Jacksonville in June.
    We hope to be able to share some of the antiques we have. We are Texans living in Florida.
