Antique Appraisers

Selkirk Auctioneers and Appraisals in St. Louis’s Central West End holds a free event each month where people can bring in their treasures and find out what they’re worth. We went to one and found out what makes something valuable …or not.

This episode features the work of glass artist Sam Stang, singer Terry Barber, an inside look at the expansion of Laumeier Sculpture Park and a heartwarming story about how Variety Children’s theatre is helping disabled kids shine.
