    That old guitar you no longer play could be worth a fortune. Find out this week in Naugatuck.

    You could be sitting on a gold mine and the Treasure Hunters Roadshow is on a world-wide treasure hunt, digging for it in Naugatuck for five days.

    Instead of tossing out that old vase, maybe you should have collectible experts take a look at it.

    You might as well, because the event is free and you never know what you have on your hands.

    Throughout the week, treasure hunters are expecting to meet with more than 1,200 locals who bring in their rare and unusual collectibles.

    Nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, musical instruments and toys made prior to 1965 are highly sought after, according to a news release from the International Collectors Association.

    Here’s how it all works. The treasure hunters make offers based on what the collectors are willing to pay.  Then, when someone decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and send the item to the collector at their expense. 
     
    Empty your jewelry box of broken jewelry, dig out your old teeth containing dental gold and find your gold coins.

    The event starts today, Tuesday, and runs through Saturday at the Comfort Inn on New Haven Road in Naugatuck. The doors open at 9 a.m, and the show goes to 6 p.m. On Saturday, door are open until 4 p.m.
