For Release: 2012-09-25 09:34:00

Hosted by Dave Shuffett and Amy Hess, KETís newest production Kentucky Collectibles tells Kentuckyís stories through prized items, whether heirloom or kitsch, that guests share with Shuffett and Hess. The hosts will also make side trips throughout Kentucky as they explore the world of antiques and collectibles at shops, boutiques and more. Kentucky Collectibles premieres Saturday, Oct. 20 at 4:30/3:30 p.m. CT and Sunday Oct. 21 at 6:30/5:30 p.m. CT on KET.

In the series premiere, expert appraisers examine several treasures, including an autographed Babe Ruth baseball, a Harpers Ferry pistol with Kentucky ties, and one personís amazing snuff bottle collection.

In May, hundreds of people brought their treasures to KETís Appraisal Fair. With cameras rolling, expert appraisers talked to participants about their possessions, assessing the value and history of items that included art, antique furniture, autographed baseballs, pottery and much more.

Kentucky Collectibles is a KET production, produced by Erin Milburn Lowry.
