The little eleven-year old in me is in awe at this video. What a find. From the Huffington Post:
Are you a Windie? Do you know what a Windie is? On “Antiques Roadshow” (Mon., 8 p.m. ET on PBS), a woman brought in an item that she was told would make them “plotz.”
Windies, according to the appraiser, are fanatical enthusiasts of “Gone With the Wind,” and there’s no doubt that this woman’s treasure would pique their interest. It was a copy of the book signed not only by author Margaret Mitchell, but also by virtually the entire cast of the classic movie as well.
Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Victor Fleming, Hattie McDaniel and more! Not just Windies, but anyone who appreciates classic literature and classic cinema could easily see how special and significant a find this is. The estimated value for the book was set in the range of $7-9,000.
