    Killer Stuff and Tons of Money: An Insider's Look at the World of Flea Markets, Antiques and Collecting


    Killer Stuff and Tons of MoneyThanks to Gail Macleod from Antiques News we were recommended Maureen Stanton's new book - a great read.

    It's a behind-the-scenes look at the rich and sometimes hilarious subculture of antiques, collecting, and flea markets - replete with arcane traditions and high drama. Award-winning writer Maureen shadows an antiques dealer from flea markets to high-end antiques shows as he plies his esoteric knowledge to find hidden gems. Along the way, she takes us on the set of Antiques Roadshow, explores eBay's effect on the trade, and for a chapter on fakes and frauds, she interviews a master restorer who passes his doctored furniture through top auction houses.
