BOISE -- It's a show that makes you take second look at your grandma's hand-me-downs, and think 'Could that actually be worth something?'

On Sunday night, the popular PBS program Antiques Roadshow did not disappoint as it aired the first of three episodes taped in Boise last summer.

Unsurprisingly, some Idahoans brought very unique and valuable items to the show. They included the biggest find of the season -- an inherited oil painting by artist Sanford Robinson Gifford.

Another high-value find: a first edition Book of Mormon that had been passed down through the guest's family for more than 150 years. The book was valued at up to $100,000.

There will be two more Boise-based episodes. The shows are set to air on January 13th and 20th at 7 p.m. each night.
