Has anybody seen my keys?
You found my Mary Moo-cow!
Now, where did I put that tax file?
I know I put my new Bionic Bunny comic in my backpack.
-Oh, I've been looking everywhere for that! Thank you.
Have you ever noticed how when you're looking for one thing,
you often find something else instead? My comic! Thanks, boy!
These books are due back in three weeks. This is overdue.
You owe me 600! I do take credit cards!
-DW, shh! I don't wanna miss anything.
'Back to Treasure Caravan!
-'Tell me where you found this chair.
-I bought it for 10 at a yard sale.
'It's not comfortable to sit on,
-'so I've been keeping it in the garage.'
10! Who knows what it's really worth!
-It's just an ugly chair!
-That's what YOU think!
'I would say it was made some time in the 1790s.'
It's a Federal-style chair.
'There are teeth marks on the legs.
-'I'd say it was once owned by someone with a dog.
'It would be better if there were no teeth marks.
'However, at auction, this chair could easily bring...'
-It's got teeth marks!
-I'm going to say 500!
-You've gotta be kidding!
-For that old thing?!
And to think he paid 10 for it!
I love this show!
'That's it for this week's edition of Treasure Caravan!
'Be sure to join us next time, when the Treasure Caravan
'will be coming to you from the Elwood City Centre!
'So come on out and remember...
'every treasure has a story!'
This is our chance to be on Treasure Caravan!
-I'm going to get tickets.
-We have to find something good to take.
I don't wanna be one of those people who brings a piece of junk.
It's a bugle from the Civil War.
Oh, it can't be from the Civil War period.
-It's plastic! LAUGHTER
-Are you sure?
This is just a cheap little toy.
But maybe you could use it as a noise maker!
I don't wanna look like a fool on TV.
You can't trick the cameras, Arthur!
I bet we can find something worth taking in my attic.
Come over tomorrow and we'll see.
I can't believe Treasure Caravan is coming to town.
I'm taking this sapphire necklace that once belonged to royalty.
-Where did you get that?
-It was passed down by my great grandmother,
Taffy Crosswire. She was travelling back from Europe on a steamship
when she made the acquaintance of the Arch-Duchess of Moldavia!
Allow me to introduce myself.
I am Irena Katrina Von Hapsemberg, Arch-Duchess of Moldavia!
'They became fast friends.
'One night, there was a storm at sea.
'The Arch-Duchess seemed troubled.'
Oh, please, tell no-one,
but I am in desperate need of money!
Perhaps I can help.
I would never dream of accepting charity!
And I would never give it.
But how about if you sell me that necklace you're wearing.
So my great grandmother bought the necklace, and now, it's mine.
Oh, it must be worth millions.
Stuff like that never happens in MY family!
So I can't decide if I should take my hockey card collection,
or the things I've collected that were clearly left behind by aliens.
I would go with the hockey cards.
You're right. It's probably better not to let THEM know I've got this.
So what are YOU taking?
I'm still looking for the right thing.
Oh, my, there's even more up here than I remembered.
We'll search every inch until we find something amazing.
This looks really old.
It's yours if you'd like it.
-What's wrong, Kate?
You like that blanket, do you?
I'm gonna put Kate down for her nap.
We'll keep looking.
-Woo! This looks like it's made of gold!
-Let me see that!
No way! Finders keepers!
Get out of my way!
-Do you remember where you got this chair?
-I really don't,
but it does look like the chair we saw on TV.
No teeth marks, so who knows what it could be worth.
'Welcome to the Recovery Channel.
'Tonight, we're talking to Arthur Read,
'the boy who recovered the most valuable chair of all time!
'At first, I thought it was one of those 30,000 chairs.
'But when I saw it was in perfect condition,
'I knew it was even more valuable.'
Watch out! You almost crushed my special box!
Dad, no sitting in that chair!
This sapphire necklace was passed down to me by my great grandmother.
She purchased it from the Arch-Duchess of Moldavia,
the famous Irena Katrina Von Hapsemberg.
How did your great grandmother become acquainted with the her?
They met aboard a steamship when she took a trip to Europe.
Well, the sapphires are actually simulates.
Ooh, sounds expensive!
They're imitations, fakes. It's costume jewellery.
Secondly, to my knowledge, there was no Arch-Duchess of Moldavia
-by the name of Irena Katrina Von Hapsemberg.
I believe that your great grandmother was tricked.
There's a sucker on every ship!
However, it is a beautiful piece of costume jewellery.
Not everyone can get away with a colour like this.
Look how it brings out your eyes.
I'm glad you told me to bring the hockey cards.
I just found out that this card is worth 5.45!
-And I only paid a quarter for it!
Is that THE chair? Can I see it?
I can't unwrap it. It might get scratched.
OK. I'm gonna find the caravan popcorn stand.
I'll be watching for you on the TV screens. Good luck!
Oh, my, this is uncanny!
The overall design, the shape of the legs and the seat...
I see lots of chairs, but this one is exactly like
a chair my grandmother used to have.
I have fond memories of sitting in a chair like this at her house.
-But what's it worth?
But it looks exactly like the chair that was worth 30,000!
Oh, no, this was made in the 1970s. Not the 1790s.
No comparison, really. Now that looks like something special.
This is an original dance apron made by a native American tribe
from the Pacific North West called the Chilkat.
How would something like that end up in your attic?
My mother said it was passed down to her from her great uncle -
a prospector who went to British Columbia to seek his fortune.
It was a common gift at potlatchesamong the native people there.
What's a potlatch?
It's a ceremony at which you give away as many gifts as possible
to your guests.
'Maybe your great great uncle was a guest at one.
'Wow! I wish we could find out for sure.'
Do you know if he ever wrote letters home or kept a diary?
My mother said he used to write occasionally.
We should find those letters.
It's so wonderful that you care about your family history.
Wait, how much is the dance apron worth?
Well, this one is really worn.
But I'd say...
We can't let her have a 5, 000 apron!
See what I have to put up with?
I never knew Arthur liked aprons so much.
Oh, it's so sad when money gets in the way of family.
Oh...here you go.
AUDIENCE CLAPS Now that's the real meaning of family treasure.
He'd never be that nice if we weren't on TV.
