I am a big fan of the Antiques Road Show. Once in a while I take a look at the things that I have collected over the years and wonder if anything may be of value to someone one day. Well, the Antiques Road Show has only been to town a few times, and who knows when they’ll be back. However, there are other sources at the library to tell me how much I can hope to see from Great Aunt Edna’s Pickle Castor.
A long time ago, I inherited a bunch of antiques from my grandmother that I never quite knew what to do with. Some of these items were pretty interesting, some were kind of junky, and most were handmade ceramics bearing her name on the bottom. Since I had no real interest in them at the time, and no way to display them that would fit with my own taste in home décor, they remained boxed up and in the basement for years.
