Backstage Antiques is RBTV’s premier vintage appraisal program. From its inception as an in-studio vintage appraisal program within the mid-1980s to its evolution, within the new millennium, into an on-location program that includes the value determinations of things from members of the viewers, Backstage Antiques has at all times drawn the curious eyes of antiquing aficionados. Initially hosted by Kathleen Snyder, proprietor of Arcade Antiques and Jewelers in Riverside, Illinois, Backstage Antiques, in its first yr, explored just one kind of vintage per episode. The sequence’ fourth episode was the primary to function the value determinations of things from members of the viewers. That individual episode’s format proved highly regarded, and within the following years, Backstage Antiques completely adopted the format of appraising viewers members’ vintage objects. Beginning within the yr 2000, Backstage Antiques moved out of the RBTV studios with a view to hold in line with the more and more massive variety of viewers members. The 2000 season was taped on the historic Riverside Township Corridor, and 2006 seasons have been taped on the LaGrange Park Vintage Mall. Because of persevering with curiosity within the sequence, RBTV might pursue a brand new season of Backstage Antiques sooner or later.
