If you have old junk just sitting around the house, don't throw it out! It could be worth big bucks!
Military hats, old tin toys, even musical instruments. One person's trash is another person's treasure.
"These two guys you're looking at about $25 on each of them."
Dozens of your friends and neighbors are bringing in their stuff to the Treasure Hunters Roadshow going on right now in Lehighton.
"I had some old costume jewelry laying around the house and I had heard some of that stuff is worth money, so I figured I would get it checked out," said Mary Shorten from Jim Thorpe.
Eighty percent of folks who come to the show walk away with a check in hand.
"We have collectors and auction houses and things like that set up so that basically we can make a purchase right on the spot," explained Treasure Hunters Field Manager Aaron Hanover.
Shorten wasn't so lucky.
"Basically it's worth nothing," she laughed.
Here's where the hidden money is: you could have broken earrings or necklaces just laying around the house that could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Since the economy took a nose dive more people are digging in their basements and attics to see if they have hidden gems.
"Everybody's trying to get a few extra dollars," said Hanover.
At this show, coins and jewelry have been the popular items.
"I thought I woulda got more money for the silver dollars but they weren't, you know, quite that old," said Byron George from Trexlertown. "But I'm still happy."
He ended up selling a silver piece, a ring, and an earring for $43.50. And he might be back for more.
"I'll look around and see what I have."
The Treasure Hunters Roadshow is in town through Saturday.
