The only object that Micki and Ryan sold themselves was the cursed doll which appeared in the series premiere. The rest of the antiques were sold by Uncle Lewis and they were conveniently registered in the manifest. Many artifacts were procured by an unknowing Jack during his trips to Europe. However some antiques were gifted by Lewis to some users. Apart from the cursed antiques the leads also retrieved some items with supernatural properties but which were not owned by Lewis. See more »
In "A Cup of Time", Jack poses as a homeless man and removes a toupee from his head after Lady Die gives him the cup. Posing as a homeless man was a spur of the moment decision after he got to the park and realized Lady Die was there, so he wouldn't just happen to have a toupee since he doesn't wear one normally.

A three season anthology horror series filmed in Toronto during the late eighties which told the story of two cousins and their friend, a specialist in occult research; the threesome chased after cursed antiques which were distributed from their store previously owned by their late Uncle Lewis Vendredi, a strange man who made a pact with the Devil.
Following the departure of the lead actor John D. LeMay at the end of the second season, the void was filled by his replacement Steven Monarque, originally introduced as a recurring character in the second season, and was added to the main cast as the new antique sleuth. The third season was cut short with 20 rather than 26 episodes though the series has made it to syndication and has a small but loyal cult following. John D. LeMay made an outstanding contribution to the series and his character as Ryan Dallion is clearly a favorite of all time among viewers. Ryan was never forgotten and was mentioned in passing by Robey, as Micki Foster, at the beginning of the third season episode "Demon Hunter" and later in "The Long Road Home". As well, footage from the second season episode "Tails I Live Heads You Die" was used at the beginning of the "Bad Penny" episode. It gave the impression that perhaps the character of Ryan would be re-written into the storyline at some point, but to our disappointment, it never happened.
Third season episodes had some of the best story lines, but unevenly distributed script and dialogue. The new character Johnny Ventura was underutilized. He rarely had lines. Too many scenes with two-way conversation only between Jack and Micki with Johnny just sitting in the background. Blame the story editor for this one! This, and lack of proper series closure, renders the third season a weak one.
Very little behind the scenes trivia and info. about the cast and crew are available regarding the series. Audio and/or video interviews would be an invaluable addition that could be presented via DVD release. Unfortunately, there's nothing official or rumored about this for the near future.
