Antique Roadshow comes to Norcross

See also

Saturday afternoon, a crowd of about 200 gathered at the Norcross Cultural Arts and Community Center for an opportunity to meet an appraiser from the PBS television show, Antique Roadshow.

Items brought in by residents of Norcross included everything from silver to swords, crystal to bric-a-brac and dolls to jewelry. Those who were seen by the appraiser seemed pleased to learn more about their treasures, both historically and value wise.

The audience could watch a projection screen of the appraisers computer monitor as she surfed many helpful areas on the internet seeking similar items and historical data related to the item being appraised. One attendee told me that she "had a much better understanding of the steps to value items on her own in the future."

This event was sponsored by The Norcross Welcome Center and coordinated by Cate Kitchen.

Selma Paul, ISA CAPP, a certified member of the International Society of Appraisers, was the appraiser on duty who is frequently a member of the popular Antique Roadshow series. Unfortunately, the turnout was so great that many guests went away disappointed, not being early enough on the sign-up list which dictated the order of being seen. As one gentleman put it as he left the venue, "Many have come, but few where chosen."
