Killer Stuff and Tons of Money : Seeking History and Hidden Gems in Flea-Market America, by Maureen Stanton

Fascinating look at the life of a middle-rung antiques dealer- waking at 4 am, driving from state to state to fairs and flea markets, always searching for the one killer find, the lottery ticket, the magic piece. Great and thought provoking in the age of IKEA and crap.

I'm reading Maureen Stanton's book so slowly, don't want it to end. It's all about what is so familiar to me and that which I always felt would be a great book. Hope Maureen writes a sequel and that Curt Avery comes out of the closet. I would love to meet him as he's teaching me so much. Anyone who buys, sells, loves antiques will love this book.
