    Tuesday at the Baltimore Zoo. I'm taking a miniature portrait I've had for decades. But I can't decide between an antique gold wristwatch or a Weller Glendale vase for the second item.

    I don't have anything out to take pics yet. I have 3 young cats and keep things in safe places until I need them. But the vase is like one of these:


    The wristwatch looks like this one:


    The pictures of my miniature painting are on the other computer and it's being a $%^& lately. I'll take more pics when I get a chance.

    This will be My third Roadshow. The first was Virginia Beach and had lots of neat stuff. The second was in Pennsylvania and every other item coming in the building was a gun. Very boring show.

    Ohhh, If it was me, I'd take the vase. But be CAREFUL with it! Have fun.

    Take the item that's more likely to get you on TV. ;)

    That’s very exciting. I wouldn’t really know between the vase vs watch as a 2nd. But I think I would have taken the vase (beautiful and very striking) Hopefully the miniature portrait does the trick. Best of luck!

    I'm with the others, take the vase and put the watch in your pocket, just in case.;) More importantly, have a great time.:)
    I find that it works when you put breakable items 'huddled' chockablock together.
    That is to say, it always worked with my kittens.:cat: You may want to try it with cheap items first, maybe even plastic.

    The chockablock display technique is also a very good excuse to collect as many things as you like.:joyful:

    I am going against the grain here. Think the vase is too normal for the Roadshow. Not much more to know about it really, so nothing for them to expound about. I don't know how common the watch is but it seems the better of the two items for the Roadshow.

    Doesnt seem like womens wristwatches seem terribly popular,unless they are diamond encrusted from Chopard or the like. Id be absolutely unable to pick 2 items without freaking out and changing my mind constantly ! One of the downsides of having too many pretties ! LOVE the miniature portrait.

    I am tired and hot! I drank a bottle of tea, a bottle of water, and drank more tea when we stopped to eat on the way home. I still didn't have a full bladder because I sweat most of it out!

    Anyway, it was another interesting roadshow. I met one of the Keno brothers. Met one of the retired local newsmen working as a volunteer. Also saw one dealer that I see at auctions doing a segment for the show. And I saw some interesting stuff.
    My stuff was what I thought it was. But, when I went to get out the vase I wanted to take, I noticed I had another vase I had forgotten about and was never able to identify. I think I may have even posted it here at one time. So, I took it instead. Unfortunately, I broke it on the way in. :bored: And I had it in bubblewrap and a box!
    I spent quite a bit of time sitting under a tent waiting for my sister and watching them film some of the more informal bits they do.

    There was one piece that I'm not sure will make it on the show but my sister and I spent some time talking to the people. It was a huge painting of a dollar bill that was beautifully framed and the guy bought it at a flea market for I think it was $10 or $15. They were told it was worth several thousand. They had come all the way from Georgia with it in a rental truck.
