Travis Landry is the director of pop culture and auctioneer for Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers of Cranston, Rhode Island. Travis has had no shortage of experience having bought and sold his first collection at 13 years old with a $700 loan from his parents.

Since then, Travis has developed a connoisseurship for all things Pop Culture specializing in toys, comics, collectibles, and street and urban commercial art with a peculiar affection for 1970s and later Japanese robots and Transformers.

Prior to ROADSHOW, Travis was a recurring cast member on Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter beginning in his senior year of high school through his early college years. Travis hold’s a bachelor of arts in art history from Framingham State University and recently aided author Mark Bellomo in writing The Ultimate Guide to Vintage Transformers Action Figures, supplying all values for factory sealed figures. Travis is a frequent guest and panelist at various comic and toy conventions across the country.

When not “nerding out" over super-heroes and lightsabers, Travis is an active automobilia and petroliana fanatic, with his father and brother actively seeking and restoring their next barn find. Travis resides in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, with his girlfriend (also coworker!) and two cats, where they personally love and collect period American furniture and decorative and fine arts.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is an antiques appraisal event and television production; we do not buy or sell objects, and conducting any business with an appraiser at the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event is strictly forbidden.

If you decide to do business with an appraiser who has appeared on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, please keep in mind these tips before consigning or selling an item:

  • Get more than one referral and check references
  • Get valuations of your item from more than once source
  • Compare options between different types of sellers, i.e., a dealer versus an auction house
  • If you are considering consigning an object for auction, be sure to inquire how the item will be priced, the size of the fee, and the expected amount of time the process may take. Find out what will happen if it doesn't sell.
  • Check the appraiser's professional associations (such as International Society of Appraisers, American Appraisers Association, National Auctioneers Association)
  • Consult an attorney before signing a contract
  • Whatever kind of transaction you decide to enter into, always get a detailed written receipt for your records

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s pool of experts are professionals with a wide range of experience in the antiques, fine art and collectibles community, and they are from a diverse background of auctioneers, dealers and appraisers.

All ROADSHOW appraisers are independent volunteers who donate their time and expertise to PBS and who pay their own expenses to be on the show. All business transactions are independent from ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.
