What’s it worth?

Watch Antiques Roadshow at 7 p.m. Monday, June 20 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Not just one , but two episodes back to back for all of your antiquing needs. And what a two hours it will be, just imagine all the things you could learn. I for one never imagined you could sell a paper dress styled after Campbell’s Soup cans for $2,000 – $3,000. I mean… who would really spend their money on something like that? Other than maybe Campbells to put in a museum.
It’s always interesting to see what some of these items go for. Kind of makes me want to raid my grandma’s basement one of these days and just see what kind of buried treasures she’s hiding down there. Some long lost art work maybe? Or perhaps an appliance that they only made a few hundred of that is still in working condition.
I feel like a few decades from now, collectibles won’t really exist. Everything is produced on such large scales for the masses to buy. The only “collectible” I can think of that was made in the past few decades is Beanie Babies. Everyone remembers that craze, but will the limited edition animals really be worth something significant someday?
