Antiques Roadshow Would Like to See More W. Va. Furniture
The producers of Antiques Roadshow would like to see more furniture from West Virginia. The popular appraisal show will be in Charleston in August and time is running out to submit your family's furniture heirlooms.
So far, West Virginians have submitted photos of 76 pieces of furniture, but Antiques Roadshow executive producer Marsha Bemko would like to see a lot more.
"We're going to pick 8 to 10 pieces of furniture from this pool of applicants who are sending us the pictures they want us to move. And we move these pieces of furniture at our expense. This is a great opportunity for us to do all of the work and tell you more about your furniture."
A professional moving company will transport your furniture to Charleston to be appraised. There is a 50 mile radius limit, but Bemko says don't let that stop you from sending in your photos.
"Send what you've got. Let us have the chance to ponder it."
The deadline to submit photos is April 7. If your furniture is selected for appraisal, you'll get two tickets to the Antiques Roadshow on August 16 and get to bring four other items to be appraised.
