Maryland Public Television (MPT) has invited me for the fourth time, their fourth season, to be a panel expert on their Chesapeake Collectibles Show. The TV show is a regionally broadcasted Antiques Roadshow appraisal fair. Executives at MPT have told us appraisers (about 20 of us) that this show outperforms nearly every show on their schedule, including the Roadshow — even in re-runs. Yep. I’m a celebrity (thumbs in suspenders). That and four bucks gets me a cup of joe at Starbucks. Want to attend? Tickets can be had at MPT, Owens Mills, Maryland. www.chesapeakecollectibles.com Shooting begins again MAY 31st 2013.
