Coins are selling at record auction prices for us. Hand sewn quilts, anything of local interest, old toys, items from the late 40's and into the fifties, Elvis & Beatles record albums are all doing well. Furniture is selling very poorly. Unless it is a special item, bidders are keeping their bid cards close to their vests. A very nice Tell City Maple kitchen table and four chairs/two leaves sold for $65, Boos Butcher Block kitchen table and chairs went for $125, an Ethan Allen chest went for $25. Smaller tables such as parlor and end tables remain steady in their prices. This kind of buying has been going on for almost a year now when it comes to furniture. Auctions are doing well, though, based on the sales of other items. Crowds are about the same; gas prices does not appear to have had an effect on attendance.

As we travel the country, we hear "Pattern Glass is not selling here." But the fact that EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass 1850-1910) was made in over 1200 patterns means that the few folks who collect each pattern are spread around the country. So the internet has been a wonderful way to bring buyers & sellers together for even obscure glass patterns from the 19th century. So we find that Pattern Glass does, indeed sell via our web site where we have a 'virtual consignment shop' started over nine years ago. There is probably a market for almost everything if buyers and sellers can find each other! Elaine
