East Coast Antiques Season 3 Begins October 2



East Coast Antiques returns to Rhode Island PBS on Sunday, October 2 at 3:30 p.m. The series is part reality television and part destination show, with host and series creator Mike Rossi acting as the guide on a behind-the-scenes tour through the twists and turns of the antiques world.

As a licensed auctioneer, antiques store manager, and antiquities collector himself, Rossi brings a unique insider perspective to the new season. A television veteran with more than 25 years of broadcast experience, he is also the creator and director of the show.

Traveling from festivals to flea markets, Mike and his crew of hunters put theory to the test as they buy and sell, wheel and deal, haggle and handshake. Along the way, antiques insiders – including Rossi himself – share observations from their booths and shops up and down the east coast. East Coast Antiques presents the people and items that continue to make collecting antiques one of the hottest pastimes today.

This season of East Coast Antiques will air on Rhode Island PBS on Sunday afternoons at 3:30 p.m.  In addition to Mike Rossi, the returning cast includes antiques dealer Steve Mariorenzi, Jolie Stewart, and first season host, Margie O’Brien. Amy Miksis is the newcomer to the cast this season.
