Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin) has a gift for finding rare treasures hidden in garage sales that she can resell at her consignment store, Rags to Riches. But her keen eye for finding valuables also gets her involved in the criminal investigations that happen at the very second-hand sales she frequents.

A whole lot of Canadian players got work in this inaugural Garage Sale TV movie All That Glitters. That is except for lead Lori Loughlin late of Full House. She's our protagonist whose eye for the valuable and even unexpected valuable looks like it will get her into trouble.
Loughlin owns an eclectic store called Rags To Riches and it's built on the premise that people discard some really interesting and valuable things when they do spring cleaning. It's what makes her business, profitable, interesting and fun. She and partner Sarah Strange purchase the contents of a storage unit which is up for auction as the person who stored whatever there failed to pay the agreed upon fees.
Later on though the manager of the storage unit location is murdered and that turns into the homicide that our antique dealer has to solve. Like that other female sleuth Jane Marple, she's up to the job. There is something truly valuable involved and it's hidden in a most ordinary place.
There's also a side plot involving her son and the discovery of a pirate treasure map in another antique purchase. You never know what will turn up and I suspect this is the plot premise of the future Garage Sale movies.
It looks like an enjoyable series.
