News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - The antiques and collectibles market is a vast and wide reaching market. Trying to estimate the number of collectors or antiquers in the US is nearly impossible. Why? It all boils down to definition...how do you define a collector? Don’t most of us collect something? If so, then there are millions of fellow collectors. After all, there are 203 million eBay users, with a good portion of them defined as collectors.
To help navigate this vastness, Kyle Husfloen assembles one of America’s most trusted price guides, helping them get fair buying and selling prices. His annual reference leads the market in sales, and his most recent edition is now available. Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2007 (Krause Publications) once again offers all new listings (11,000+), more than 5,000 new color photos and up-to-date prices.
Price guides are one of the most important resources collectors can utilize to make sure they are buying or selling at fair prices. Collectors should use more than one and have updated editions to catch the latest pricing trends. Prices in the book are a cross section of what is bought and sold each year. Husfloen states that it’s always important to remember that many factors, including quality, rarity, condition and regional market demand, will all influence what a specific piece may bring in the current marketplace.
