Killer Stuff and Tons of Money
I am finally working my way through Maureen Stanton's Killer Stuff and Tons of Money: Seeking History and Hidden Gems in Flea-Market America, and I must say, I'm enjoying it. So many books on the antiques biz are fun reads, but don't really say much about the business and how it operates. Stanton, however, through her dealer friend Curt Avery (not his real name), does, in fact, paint a pretty accurate picture of what a life in the antiques trade can be like.
