Hi Barbara!
I'm glad you found your way here.
Love your site and Rudys ties.
Does he have a Betty Boop one?
I'm a big fan- of BB and the roadshow.

My husband is very much into watching the Roadshow - he collects autographs (only is very fussy about which ones) and I collect porcelain and Wedgwood so the shows are fun for us to watch

Barbara, welcome aboard. Please keep announcements like this confined to your blog. In time I will be adding a separate announcements forum for items such as this. You might want to read the help section.

Cheers,
Daniel

Hi LC
I'm a generalist, working at the front desk. When I do get a chance to work the tables in the back, I'm at the collectibles table with my husband, Rudy, who is an on air appraiser.

And we probably are on several Yahoo groups together. I think I belong to most of the mystery ones.

Hi Barbara, I think you are on some yahoo lists that I am on too? Sometimes I am not sure where I saw a name before. Anyway, I am curious about what your area of expertise is on the Roadshow?
Lynne
