The Great American Road Show is in Batesville this week

Do you ever wonder what that old toy, class ring or piece of war memorabilia you have stashed away in your closet is worth? You might be sitting on a small fortune. Mark your calendar because the Great American Road Show and their specialists are coming to Batesville, AR!

The Great American Road Show, which is free to the public, is a touring road show event, which travels the North American continent. While the Great American Road Show will buy anything that is old, the focus will be on gold and silver jewelry, coins made before 1965, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wristwatches, costume jewelry, old US currency printed prior to 1964, and foreign coins.

The Great American Road Show President, Anthony Enright, explains what sets our event apart. “Due to our relationships with vendors across the US and our direct link to gold and silver refineries, we are able to pay unbelievable prices for both precious metals and collectibles.”   Visitors to the event will also be able to ask questions directly to the specialists. Enright says, “Everybody has an item or two that they are curious about its value. This event is a great place to find out what it’s worth and sell it on the spot if you choose.”

Another aspect that sets the Great American Road Show event apart from competitors is their commitment to excellent customer service. The folks that have attended their events in the past have stated, ”I have never been treated so fairly, the specialists know there stuff and I got a great deal for my items.”

During a weak economy, gold and silver prices soar. Because of this, the Great American Road Show is able to provide much needed revenue to communities and their families. One attendee reported, “I recently lost my job and was having a difficult time with monthly expenses and providing for my family. I was able to sell my unwanted gold and silver jewelry for $1,500 when the jewelry store and pawnshops were offering nearly half that amount. Now that is a stimulus package I can relate to.”

Enright stresses it’s not just the hidden gems they are looking for, “One thing that every woman probably has is broken jewelry; necklaces, bracelets, rings or even earrings that are no longer part of a set. The time has never been better to cash-in on those pieces sitting at the bottom of your jewelry box!” Typically, for a mixed box of old jewelry, people can walk out with a for a few hundred dollars cash depending on the quality.

If you are planning on attending, here are a few tips for visitors. Although the evaluation process is very quick, bring along a book to read because you may have to wait in line for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the day. Also, don’t clean your items, it could damage them and ultimately lower its value. The specialists can see through the dirt and grime. Finally, there is no limit to the number of items you can bring, they will evaluate it all. Even if you have unusually large items, they are available to assist you.

Enright promises, “It’s a fun, free and exciting event and more than likely, you will walk out with money in hand.” These days when everyone is looking to save money and ways to come up with extra cash, this is a great way to do it.”
