The items scouted, found and bought by the Great Canadian Roadshow are more than old collectibles. Age, beauty, rarity, and emotional connection, make each item unique to sellers and buyers. Each item is unique unto itself. Over the years, the GCR have discovered objects that represent a previous era or time period in human society. It is a common practice for the team to uncover objects over 100 years old.
The Great Canadian Roadshow take great pride in honoring craftsmanship, historical design while discovering antiques. Each treasure tells a tale fit for the history books. Within any given tale lies a story of humanity.
“We believe in humility – and take this angle of our business very seriously. I can recall several occasions where I’ve acted as nothing but a source of information. There is a certain joy we receive from helping someone decipher where grandma’s old coins came from. For us, that is just as fulfilling as writing a youngster a sizeable cheque for his grandfathers old pocket watches.” Terry Koutros, GCR
