This hour, local antique and vintage dealers share some of the ways they determine an object's value.

In honor of the recent "Antiques Roadshow" episodes that were filmed in Shelburne, Vermont Edition is putting on our own "Antiques Radio Show." Local antique and vintage dealers will teach us some tricks of their trade.

Our guests are:

  • Brian Bittner, owner of Bittner Antiques in Shelburne, specializing in coins, jewelry, watches, flatware, silver, fine art and other collectibles
  • Maggie Gray, owner of Haven in St. Johnsbury, specializing in vintage furniture and other home items

Note: Bittner Antiques is a Vermont Public underwriter.
Broadcast live on Thursday, May 4, 2023, at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
