Trash or Treasure?
If you’ve wondered whether to toss or keep that old lamp in the attic or if your great-uncle’s cufflinks should be in the wall safe, bring them for appraisal to our next taping of ”Kentucky Collectibles.”
When you donate $100 to KET, you are guaranteed one ticket to our appraisal fair on June 22, 2013, at the KET Network Center studios in Lexington. One ticket allows one person to bring in up to two items to be appraised by our experts. Plus, your story and treasure may be featured on the second season of KET’s popular new series, “Kentucky Collectibles”!
