    I've got some stories to tell you Sunday evening. There's the story about a painting that was purchased by the first Senator from Wyoming for his daughter to give to a friend. That painting was subsequently donated to a hospital in Cheyenne, Wyoming that was dedicated to the Senator's daughter, who, by the way was married to Black Jack Pershing and who was killed in a fire at the Presidio in San Francisco while Pershing was looking for Poncho Villa in Mexico. There's another story about a man from Brooklyn who was aboard the Enola Gay when it dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima--an unlikely hero who just happened to take the photo of the mushroom cloud. Then there's the story of an artist in Denver, Colorado who was a friend of Sharon Tate, Abigail Folger, and Roman Polanski. A man who, by the merest chance wasn't on Cielo Drive the night of the Manson murders. A man who had painted a picture in Abigail Folger's apartment that ended up being found in 2015 at an estate sale by a man who was a friend of Sharon & Abigail. There's the story of a woman who was standing in Dealey Plaza on November, 22, 1963 and when the Presidential limosine was about 10 feet away from her she took a photo of the President & Jackie at the exact moment of the fatal head shot. Oh, and in the background of that photo was "The Grassy Knoll." Then there's the story of finding Harry S. Truman's poker table in a basement in Denver a couple of years ago. So many stories! So many more stories yet to be told. These are just some of the stories to be found in the iAntique Video Archive. Who wouldn't want to be in this business? Please join us this coming Sunday evening, June 26, 2016 for this week's show. We're on at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    I get more questions about how to tell whether a picture under glass is original or a print than all other questions I receive combined. It's very easy to figure it out, and as a dealer, knowing how to do it is probably worth more to you than any other thing you can learn. So, in this week's show we'll discuss not only how to determine whether a picture is original or not, but also how to know if an original work is a watercolor, a gouache, or a pastel. I've selected 5 watercolors, 3 gouaches, and a pastel to demonstrate not only which medium they are, but also to get at values for each of the 9 works. We'll look at 2 watercolors by Charles Henry Reinike, 1 by Terri McNichol, 1 by Herndon Davis, and 1 by Frank Howell; 2 gouaches by Gerry Metz and 1 by Richard Pannett; and a gorgeous pastel by Elsie Haddon Haynes. Hope you can join us at the usual time, this Sunday evening, June 19, 2016 at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    It's time (it's actually past time!) for our periodic (should be monthly) Bargain Show featuring finds in the Mall priced at less than $100. I've found some sensational bargains in a variety of categories at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver. We've got a Marilyn Monroe paper bag with the Warhol silkscreen image (very collecitible), a really nice watercolor for $28, a big, heavy ole cast iron bunny door stop, a great glass plate negative with an image of Georgetown, Coloado, a huge planter that has been repurposed (tune in to see what it once was), and many other unusual collectibles at bargain prices. We're on at the usual time, this Sunday, June 12, 2016: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Hope you can join us. Gary

    This week's show will feature carnival, state fair, and circus collectibles that I found in the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver and in the iAntique Classifieds. This is more than just a subset of the toy category. After all, carnival glass and circus posters are not toys, are they? There's great variety in this area, and I think I found some very nice examples of carnival prizes, clowns in many shapes & sizes, posters, etc. Please join us this Sunday everning, June 5, 2016 at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT.
