Carolina Collectibles 2020 Preview
The Antiques Roadshow experience, Carolina style, with our Carolina Collectibles program!
How it Works
For a donation of $125 to support PBS Charlotte, you will receive two vouchers to have two items evaluated. For a donation of $150, you will receive three vouchers to have 3 items evaluated. For more information please call PBS Charlotte Member Services at 704-330-5939 or email email@example.com.
Specialists from Leland Little Auctions will be at PBS Charlotte to provide verbal valuations on hundreds of items.
You should be prepared to wait in line, following any social distance protocols assigned, but we’ll have some seating for those who need it.
You are encouraged to take notes on what the specialist tells you about your item (valuations are NOT intended to be used for insurance purposes). Typically, valuations last about 5 – 8 minutes with the specialist, depending on the item.
Check your attic for any family heirlooms including fine art, furniture, decorative art, Asian art, fine jewelry, coins, toys, etc. (If you’re not sure, bring it!)

Frequently Asked Questions
Will this be recorded for a future Antiques Roadshow program?
No, this is a PBS Charlotte event and is not affiliated with the Antiques Roadshow series. However, we will be recording to create our own special to air later.
May I call PBS Charlotte to obtain vouchers for my items?
You can call PBS Charlotte Member Services Monday – Friday (9 a.m – 5 p.m.) at 704-330-5939. Just let our staff know that you’d like to attend our “Carolina Collectibles” event.
Will anyone be available to carry my items inside?
Due to our insurance liability, PBS Charlotte staff and volunteers will not be able to handle your items. However, we will provide dollys and industrial carts for your use.
May I bring a guest?
Your admission is based on the number of vouchers you choose to receive as opposed to tickets for individual people. Because our topmost concern is our guests’ wellbeing, we ask that you please only bring one guest with you this year. We will have handcarts available if you need help carrying items.
Can I arrive earlier than my appointment time?
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your appointment time. This year we will limit our buildings capacity to follow state guidelines, and will not be able to accommodate you earlier than the time you requested. If you need to change your appointment time, please let us know ASAP by calling 704-330-5939 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the station doing to help protect people from COVID-19?
Our guests’ health and safety is always our main concern. We have set up hand-sanitizer stations throughout our building, and ask people to wash their hands in our restrooms as soon as they enter. We are asking people to only bring one guest due to limited capacity and for groups to follow social distancing guidelines. We will have handcarts available if you need assistance carrying items.
Are firearms allowed?
No. Due to our insurance liability, PBS Charlotte CANNOT accommodate firearms on our property. Please bring an alternate item.
If I’m not sure what to bring, what should I do?
Feel free to contact us via phone or email. We may ask you to email us images of your item(s) which we can forward to Leland Little Auctions representatives for their recommendation(s).
What type of items do people bring?
Typical items include chairs and other small furniture, plates and dishware, vases, jewelry, paintings, dolls and a plethora of other unique memorabilia. If you have a larger item, please call or email us to discuss the options.
Where should I park?
PBS Charlotte has plenty of free parking.
For additional questions, call PBS Charlotte Member Services at 704-330-5939 or email MemberServices@wtvi.org and reserve vouchers for your items.
