Anyone else addicted to BBC American's Cash in the Attic????
Such cool stuff and histories they uncover.
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. - Frederick Buechner
If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles, how can it be called progress?
I never heard of the show, but I "googled" their online site and found out a lot about the show - from what they had to say, it looks better than Antiques Road Show. I think it must be interesting to see an auction, especially for a real find!
Anyway, if the show's on cable, I'll probably never see it...
Yeah, Mike it's funny on Antiques Road show when people learn their stuff isn;t what they thought it was.
Ever see the Vicar of Dibley episode where the village hosts the show and the pompous one takes all his paintings only to find he spent thousands more than they were worth?
Cash in the Attic is a little different than Road show in that the team goes into a house and rummages around to find items to take to auction. The people are raising money for all kinds of things. To get their 38 year old son out of the house, take a vacation, get a car, start a goat farm....
My favorite "Antiques Roadshow" moment was this one time a lady dropped an "S-Bomb" (bleeped of course) in shock when told that she'd picked up something worth $50,000 for $10 at a yard sale. I just about died laughing, hearing -out foul language on PBS.
BTW, one of the other PBS stations (we have three here in the Chicago area) carries "Cash In The Attic" on Saturday nights.
Can you tell I have no social life ?
