ANTICS is a delight to read, with witty, engaging tales about the men and women who people America's flea markets and antiques malls --- from the high-end shops to the five-n-dime swaps. What's more, it's an instruction manual for collectors, offering up how-to's and other secrets of the trade. What makes this collection of loosely-related short stories so extraordinary is the large scope of antiquing knowledge set forth by the author. Throughout, a sense of authenticity and deep caring about humanity and its precious objects prevails.

"Many of these 22 stories have been published in quality literary magazines." -AWAREing PressFrom the Author:
"Antiquing, like comfort foods, is part of a nostalgia trend which longs for the snows of yesteryear-- a simpler life, or so we like to think of it. Everyone who has ever shopped for antiques will enjoy reading the gossipy, emotional stories of the folks selling stuff under the tent, behind the counter, and at the shows. More than 40 sellers of gorgeous, funky or sensual antiques are presented in these tales told in many voices."
