I almost threw my tickets away!
They came in an unmarked, junk-mail-looking envelope, and fortunately, when I was just beginning to wonder if they’d ever arrive, Fritz Miller at SDPB mentioned they would come in just such an envelope – so they didn’t get tossed.
The tickets are beautiful – with a gold embossed trunk – I feel like I’ve won the lottery! On each ticket are directions that let attendees know what they can’t bring to the Antiques Roadshow – the list is simple, but a little confusing, “Vehicles, stamps, paper currency, coins, bicycles, fossils and glass fire extinguishers cannot be appraised.” Huh!
Since none of my items fall into those categories, of all the items on my list to consider, I’ve decided to bring the pre-production Hatch Show Print poster of Zeke Clements and the gold necklace charm from my grandma. I’m going to see if I can’t get some history on the necklace before I go.
The countdown begins!
