I was fortunate enough to be invited to photograph the vintage clothing that was brought to the Billings, Montana taping of Antiques Roadshow. Since only a fraction of items brought make it onto the show, I got to see the true volume of vintage that turns up each time. The full report will feature all the finds from incredible Art Deco 20s garments to Buffalo skin coats, but below is a sneak peek at the treasures from Montana.
