Verbal appraisals available in four shifts:
In the WNED Television Studios
Do you have an antique lamp sitting in your attic collecting dust? Or perhaps you’ve always wondered if the end table you inherited from Great Aunt Myrtle is worth anything. Come on down to WNED’s Antiques Home Show and get the answers you’ve been looking for!
Your antiques will be verbally evaluated by an expert appraiser for only $10 per item and you can bring as many as four items total!
Appraisers in the following categories will be available to give assessments: ceramics, china, glass, paintings, jewelry, collectibles, furniture, and sports collectibles.
Please note: We do not recommend bringing large pieces of furniture, as we cannot help with moving or transporting items. Anything perceived as a weapon will not be permitted!
You are welcome to bring two guests with you at no additional charge.
WNED’s Antiques Home Show takes place in the WNED Studios, located at 140 Lower Terrace in downtown Buffalo, right next to the Adam’s Mark Hotel.

John Marfoglia grew up around the antiques business. His father was an artist who worked with antiques. John acquired the skills of buying and selling, learning the business while growing up in the area. John didn’t go to college; he started out as a general contractor. His peers convinced him to leave that business to become a part-time appraiser, which he has been for 17 years. He has had his own store on Hertel Avenue for eight years. In between his part- and full-time work, he worked 18 national shows per year. He has an internet business that specializes in antiques research, which he now uses more than his reference books.
