True Treasures

The first $1 million appraisal made on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow happened in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2009, when a woman brought in a collection of jade that her father procured from China in the 1930s and ’40s. It was the show’s highest assessment in its 16-year history. The wares at this weekend’s Crown Center Antique Festival will most likely be less expensive but nonetheless treasureworthy. On display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) are collectibles, books, jewelry, linens, furniture, pottery, china and toys and more from more than 100 dealers. Admission to this 11th annual bazaar at Crown Center Square (2450 Grand, 816-274-8444) is free. For more information, see
