Bring your collectibles, antiques and other treasures for expert review to the FREE 20th Annual Attic Treasures & Collectibles Event at the Main Library at Goodwood, 7711 Goodwood Blvd., from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday, November 14! It’s very similar to what you see on Antiques Roadshow, which runs on LPB TV.
Hundreds of people lined up with their treasures at last year’s event, however this year, registration is required to attend, and capacity is limited. For the safety of the specialists and attendees, masks or other face coverings are required, and the event will adhere to social distancing protocol.
This is the time to raid your attics, cupboards, closets and garages for that interesting or antique art, old toys, pottery, jewelry, rifles, war artifacts, small furniture or other items of interest and see what the story is behind it and possibly more.
There is a limit of three items per person at the event, and experts will be on hand to look at your collectibles and antiques. Come for the antiques viewings but bring your Library card to stay and visit our facilities and checkout some of our resources.
Library staff will be available to demonstrate the use of the Prices4Antiques Reference Database, frequently used by experts on Antiques Roadshow and available in-house and remotely to all patrons FREE with an East Baton Rouge Parish Library card.
