The Great Treasure Hunt is on in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – It's called the Great Treasure Hunt, and for some folks around Lubbock, it really is a big deal. 

"We have had a great turn out. People have come out two and three times and it's been fun," says Chris Herr with webuytreasure.com

This week appraisers set up shop in the Hampton Inn so, you can dig out something interesting and old from your attic, garage or wherever.

They'll tell you if it's just junk, or if you have some hidden treasure on your hands.  They make deals from as little as $10 to as much as $100,000.  Any kind of collectable or sports memorabilia is fair game.

Jainkin Ortiz says he wants to know about two items including something that kind of looks like a canister.

"It was passed on from my great grandmother to grandmother to my mother and now I have them. As far as where my great grandmother acquired them I don't have a clue," Ortiz says.

You can visit the Great Treasure Hunt Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Hampton Inn 5614 Englewood Avenue.
