News-Antique.com - Jun 15,2012 - June 15, 2012 – One of the most common questions in the antiques marketplace is, “What’s hot right now?” At Prices4Antiques.com, we always see lots of searches for country store items, the kind of things that lined the counters and shelves of old general stores, and in the past seven days, we’ve seen searches for a National Cash Register Model 542 register with an oak base, a Nelson Baby Powder tin, an Enterprise Manufacturing Company countertop coffee grinder, a Coca-Cola barrel-form dispenser, and a Dr. Daniels’ veterinary medicine cabinet. These were the top five items viewed in our country store section this week, but people searched for thousands of other antiques and collectibles at Prices4Antiques.com.
