The Antiques Roadshow is coming to Washington, DC this summer and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ve always loved the nation’s capital and we’re looking forward to uncovering some big treasures.
We just learned about the MV Big Flea from a colleague in PBS’s Washington, DC office. It’s a giant yard sale bazaar that benefits the local Mount Vernon Community School.
Last year the organizers sold a rare Audubon Quadruped print from the 1860s. All told, they’ve raised nearly $50,000 for public school students.
We really encourage all Antiques Roadshow fans, and everyone else, to support this great local event. You can donate your furniture and other family treasures to this good cause. And make sure to attend the Big Flea on April 24th.
Who knows, maybe you’ll find something that we can appraise when we return later this summer.
