Treasure Hunters Roadshow coming to Red Wing Feb. 7-11

The International Collectors Association will present The Treasure Hunters Roadshow Monday-Friday in Red Wing. Times are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. every day with free admission.

The Roadshow is a free event at which over 1,200 residents are expected to bring in their rare and unusual collectibles. Locals will also have a chance to talk to world-renowned antique and collectible experts.

Recent finds include a 1960's vintage guitar purchased for $100,000, four gold coins purchased from a local resident for over $72,000, a hand-written thank-you letter from Abraham Lincoln and confederate money hidden in the walls of a house.

Treasure hunters are hoping to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965, toys, dolls, trains, vintage jewelry, old and modern musical instruments and the unusual. The Roadshow is a place where anyone in the community can connect with collectors from around the world. Treasure hunters make offers based on what collectors are willing to pay. Then, when someone decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and the treasure hunters send the item to the collector at their expense.

The Roadshow will be located at Country Inn and Suites, 4275 US Highway 61 W. For directions call, (651) 388-9000
