I won this book and I couldn't be more pleased. I am a weekend antique hunter. Luckily I don't need to make a living at it, but it was pretty exciting once, buying a vase for 99c and finding out it was worth $35.
Author Maureen Stanton shadows antiques dealer "Curt Avery" (made up name) while he goes on the hunt for money making deals. He's funny and generous with his time and expertise to Stanton and of course the reader. My only negative comment is--Avery has a foul mouth and I felt it unnecessary to quote his f-bombs verbatim.
Anyone who tunes into Antique Roadshow, knows who the Keno twins are, or sees possibilities in a box of junk at a lawn sale, will enjoy this book.
