Antiques Sideshow a Success

On Saturday, May 19, 2012, the Brazos Heritage Society hosted the 2012 Antiques Sideshow – the Brazos Valley’s version of the Antiques Roadshow – in the library of Fannin Elementary School, located at Baker Street and 29th Street in Bryan.  

Between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM experts reviewed items in the following categories: vintage jewelry, china and glassware, dolls and toys, linens and quilts, books, and political ephemera. 

This program was under the direction of Events Coordinator Fran Lamb; Society members assisting in the delivery of this successful event included Nat Hilliard, Sheila Fields, Beverly Myers, Homer Myers, Randy Hilliard, Stephanie Hilliard, and Kyle Kovel.

Reviewers included Reggie Yannuzzi with English Surrey Antiques and Interiors, Wanda Comer of Vintage Jewelry, Marceil Geiser and Eulela Swinton with Brazos Valley Stitchers, and Christi Hendrix of Carousel Books.

According to Nat Hilliard, Society President, “over 40 people show up with 55 items to be reviewed.”
