The antique market in today’s economy

 With rising fuel prices, it can be difficult to be in business as an antiques dealer. A recent study indicates that two out of three Americans concur that the economy is unstable at this time; fuel prices are top on the list followed by the federal budget.

Some propose the idea that the current situation here in United States will be a boon for the antiques industry; because of increased fuel prices people will be driving less, and staying home more. During these times, people will begin to clean out attics, and places around the home fronts that were previously ignored. As a result, an increased number of antique items will surface, and end up in the markets.
