markets. Everyday I see where a piece was estimated at auction to bring $30,000 and it is hammered at $100,000.00 for the final bid. Just pick up any paper or magazine that carries final auction prices and they will see that these markets are sizzling.
Sure there are malls and antique shops that are going out of business, but in most cases it is because they aren’t willing to change with the times and technology. There is more business conducted in one market, that being eBay, than all the markets combined twenty years ago.
The wonderful thing about the principles taught in my book, 31 Steps to Your Millions in Antiques and Collectibles, is that you aren’t dependent upon trends or up and down markets. By being patient and buying right, there is a fortune to be made now. You don’t have to wait till later. There is always a buyer for the best, and if you have bought your pieces right, they will be standing in line to buy them from you.
What a great business this is. You get to mingle with great people, own and sell wonderful and beautiful items, and all the while accumulate a fortune. I have a hard time sleeping just thinking about what tomorrow might bring.
