New topic: Antiques TV

This is so embarrassing. Back in January, I (Andrew) had an excuse for my absence--the Ohio exhibition (many thanks for all of your kind words, by the way...check out next Friday's New York Times for an article that will discuss regional museum shows, including Equal in Goodness). The past 2 months, I have no excuse. Just still recovering, I suppose.

But, it's a new season (spring!) and I'm feeling energized, so let's start a real discussion. Our next column will talk about the current crop (bumper crop, that is) of antiques-related television shows. Roadshow, Pickers, Pawn Stars, etc. etc. etc. What are your opinions? Do they accurately portray antiques and the antiques business? Can they be improved? If so, how? Okay...discuss!

There is no need to be embarrassed, stuff happens in life and you have been busy, simple as that.

Meanwhile, I have been quoting & linking your articles like a madman over on the SAPFM forum as recent lively discussions on that black hole of a topic, original surface, came up.

GREAT LUCK! on the upcomming Midwest Antiques Show, this is important work and represents the future in the american antique industry.

Hi, This may have no connection to this topic but I just love the Top 10 Reasons to Buy Antiques. It was in the Oglebay Wheeling Antique Show flyer. I am an antiques/collectible dealer and would like to use these reasons on my sales slips. Seeking permission to do so. Sorry if I posted in the wrong place. Could not find an email.

Please do feel free to use and distribute the Top Ten Reasons to Buy Antiques! Just include a link to this blog, if you would. There is a link to a pdf version on this site.
