Millions of Americans are drawn to antiques and flea market culture. This world has the air of a lottery, where a $20 purchase could net you six figures. Master dealer Curt Avery, the unlikely star of Killer Stuff and Tons of Money, plays that lottery every day, and he wins it more than most. Occasionally he gets lucky, but more often he draws on a deep knowledge of America's past and the odd, fascinating and beautiful objects that have survived it.

This is a marvelous look at the antiques trading business. We follow the author as she travels with a master antiquer as he attends shows throughout the northeastern United States. We learn the tricks of authenticating, pricing and displaying wares. We learn about the grueling travel and set-up of tents etc. at each event. This was a joy to read, both fun and educational.
