Cousin’s Antiques

I was asked to go to Little Rock and check out a friend’s cousin’s collections that he and his mother had purchased through the years. He needs to down scale and get rid of the huge amounts he’s living with. It was a real eye-opener.  Most everything was reproductions that cost a lot of money when bought. But, now the prices and the demand for a lot of these items are low. I sent the pictures to a dealer and he said what I thought. Probably, not worthy of an estate sale, but might go at a flea market if priced right. It was an interesting day.

    Just out of curiosity, I’m living with 50 year old items I just didn’t get rid of.  Is a tin bread  box from the 6 0’s of any value?

      Everything is of value to someone. It is like anything else supply and demand. You might get $5.00 at a yard sale or $50. to a bread box collector. Or it might be the only thing one of your kids would love to have.
