The LCG version of “Antiques Road-show” will arrive here on Saturday, February 20. This will not be the nationally syndicated affair seen on TV; but the Carlsbad version seen only in our own Catalina Hall and featuring treasures owned by our own residents.
Charlotte Glinski is the chairwoman for this show and has been rushing from one residence to another for many months, taking pictures and documenting each item. This was no small undertaking; but she claims it has been educational and fun. She has a file of 81 antiques which will be examined by a certified appraiser, namely Carol Edwards. Since Mrs. Edwards is certified in very specific fields of antiques, many of those offered for judging had to be disqualified.
Did you ever wonder how a 900-lb breakfront featured on the TV show got there to be shown? Well it all happens with photos, interviews, etc., months before filming takes place. And that is exactly what is going on here behind the scenes. The chosen items will be photographed and presented on a big screen. This way everyone in the auditorium will be able to have a good view of each antique as they are discussed by Mrs. Edwards.
You won’t want to miss viewing this treasure trove...from teensy teacups to walloping wall hangings...mark your calendars now.
