All that glitters can be sold at roadshow event

Crossroads residents who have gold, silver, antiques or other rare collectibles lying around might want to know that the Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow wants to see them.

The Roadshow is making a stop in Big Spring this week in search of rare and unique collectibles. According to the company, collectors have set aside $300,000 to be distributed to Big Spring residents for their items during the free, five-day event.

The roadshow will be at Holiday Inn Express on the I-20 south service road from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Vice President of Media Matthew Enright said the roadshow makes offers based on what collectors are willing to pay. After one decides to sell an item, he or she is paid on the spot. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the event, organizers said.
