The prices for many antiques have dropped considerably in the past two years. Middle of the road collectibles have fallen off as much as %50. However, the rare and unusual have continued to grow in price. Gold and silver have climbed higher. The art market has fallen off and even folk art has had problems recently. Condition is even more important than it was in the past.
The three major problems in the market place today are: 1. Failing economy 2. Internet exposure to vast quantities of collectibles. 3. The absence of young buyers. larry shapiro is the web site that represents Larry Shapiro . Larry is an accredited appraiser with the International Society of Appraisers.
