ANTIQUES ROADSHOW - 2007 San Antonio Tour Stop!

In its 11th season, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW proves it will go to any lengths — more than 5,000 miles, in fact — to discover America's hidden treasures. Journeying from its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, last August, ROADSHOW was warmly welcomed to Honolulu, Hawaii, by eager Aloha State residents who'd waited ten years to proffer their prized possessions for an expert appraisal. The waiting is over, and four-time Emmy™ award-nominated ANTIQUES ROADSHOW starts its 11th season of weekly programs with three fascinating episodes from Honolulu, beginning Monday, January 1, 2007 at 8pm ET on PBS (check local listings).

Hosted by Mark L. Walberg, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's 11th season lineup once again demonstrates that America is a land marked as much by transience as permanence. As ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko puts it, "Our possessions 'have feet.' We're just as likely to find 18th-century New England furniture in Mobile, Alabama, as we are in Boston."

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's 2007 season features 18 brand new episodes taped at six far-flung locations during the summer of 2006. In addition, two special editions — "Unique Antiques" and "Jackpot!" — offer a fresh look at favorite ROADSHOW moments from earlier seasons.

January 2007 also marks the unveiling of a ROADSHOW Online exclusive: the long-awaited results of last year's ANTIQUES ROADSHOW "House Calls" Sweepstakes. Six lucky Sweepstakes winners, chosen at random from across the U.S., were visited in their homes by ROADSHOW experts eager to size up their treasures and by a camera crew ready to capture every revelation. The winners hail from West Bend, Wisconsin; Long Island, New York; Clarksdale, Mississippi; Aledo, Texas; Orangevale, California; and Hominy, Oklahoma.

We love this show, and we're frequently amazed at the valuations. Most shocking to me have been some of the Native American items and the nearly modern pottery. Who has that kind of money?

its fun to try to guess the estimate. Like tbnl mentioned its cool to see their reactions from real low to the extreme high. I remember watching an episode the guy had an entrance table from colonial america and they estimated it at $200,000.00!

REMEMBER: if you have a true antique, to keep its value don't try to restore it. I don't know how many times the value would have been higher if it wasn't restored.

my wife said she's taking me in to get me appraised since I am
an ANTIQUE then she thought about it and added.....
