Carol Gilbert's high chair that belonged to her mother and may have been used by her grandparents. A good example of antiques we'll discuss on Friday's Smart Talk.

What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, July 22, 2016:

Friday's Smart Talk is one of our most interactive programs -- in part because almost everyone can relate to our topic -- antiques.

Do you have a family heirloom rattling around in the attic, a dusty hand-me-down, or maybe something you've picked up along the way?  Perhaps you have an old letter or postcard -- something with a famous person's signature on it?  Today it seems almost everyone has an older piece they've purchased, handed down through the family or held onto from childhood.  And at one time or another, we've all wondered what that item may be worth.

Friday, Smart Talk returns to what's becoming a show favorite. Describe it as Antiques Roadshow on radio.  David Cordier, President and CEO of Cordier Auctions and Appraisals, appears on the show to discuss antiques, collecting, and value.

Far from just talking about antiques, we want to hear from you. Give us a call at 1-800-729-7532 to describe an antique item that you have. Or, even better for Mr. Cordier, send us a photo and basic description of your item to smarttalk@witf.org as the show's going on. Mr. Cordier will try to provide a rough estimate of its value, based on what he sees and hears.
