When Antiques Roadshow comes to Palm Springs...

Posted by Heather Toner on

...We all have a lot of FUN! Or at least we certainly did early this month when the iconic PBS show filmed an episode for their new season in sunny Palm Springs! As the local station for the area, PBS SoCal was on the scene, giving away prizes, helping out and documenting the day.  Here's a look back at how it all went down...

We kicked things off with a special reception for our volunteers, appraisers, and special guests.
