What did you think of our two-part series on dealing with mis-identified or poorly catalogued items and shows and/or auctions? Have you encountered this? If so, how did you deal with it?
Okay, really, I'm sure you ALL have encountered this. The fact is, there are thousands of folks out there selling antiques and while many are very very expert in what they sell, many are generalists who do there best, but can't possibly be expected to know everything. Is there a way we can create a marketplace that inspires confidence on the part of buyers rather than the "caveat emptor" attitude that has been used in the past?
