Chesapeake Collectibles looks at the treasures you may have in your attic, your garage or at your grandmother's house. It's an educational and fun half-hour that searches for and unveils some of the most fascinating antiques and treasures found across our Chesapeake region.

SEASON 10

The Season 10 Anniversary Chesapeake Collectibles Event held over the weekend of Aug 3 & 4, 2019 was a brilliant success!

In all, this production involved almost 100 production personnel… 365 collectors, each with a companion…and 846 antiques over the period of two days.

65 segments with collectors were filmed and fashioned into half-hour shows. Now it’s time to see the new series.
