Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday

During this free event, 1,200 residents are expected to bring in their rare and unusual collectibles. A recent find includes a 1960s vintage guitar purchased at an event for $100,000.  

During the event, specialists are hoping to see items such as: coins and paper currency issued prior to 1970, toys, dolls, trains, vintage jewelry, old and modern musical instruments, war memorabilia, gold and silver jewelry, costume jewelry, advertising memorabilia, swords, knives, daggers, and the unusual.

THR's Treasure Hunters Roadshow is a place where anyone in the community can connect with collectors from around the globe. Treasure hunters make offers based on rarity, collectability, condition and market value. The roadshow also purchases gold items, such as mismatched earrings, broken necklaces or costume jewelry.
