News-Antique.com - May 14,2008 - Cleveland, Ohio - May 14, 2008 - Kovels.com (http://www.kovels.com), the Web's largest free price guide for antiques and collectibles, today released its list of the top 20 searches for April. The Kovels' top 20 list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches that took place on its website during the month of April, 2008.
People use price guides for a number of reasons, usually to determine the value of an item that they own. If an item isn't listed on the top 20 list, it doesn't mean it is unpopular or that there isn't a demand for it. It only means that in April there was less interest in finding prices for that item.
