As a self-described entertaining, informative down-to-earth guide to a wide range of collectibles and antiques from the hosts of the popular television show seen on PBS stations, Treasures in Your Attic offers intriguing possibilities to consider before backing the truck up to the door and pitching the past. Joe L. Rosson and Helaine Fendelman tour an average home, room by room, identifying the various items found and discussing their rarity and value to collectors. They speak frankly about the good, the bad and the ugly and advise on how to capitalize on both items collecting dust and beloved family artifacts. The closing section provides a crash course on how to find appraisers, evaluate collections, find dealers, sell at auction and what to know about buying and selling on the Web. ( May)
