Reyne and Jonathan take a look at buying antiques in this tough economy. The economy has an effect on what’s hot in antiques, so Reyne talks to some dealers to find out what’s going on in their specialties. From furniture, to diamonds, silver, and pottery, all are in agreement that there are deals to be found in this buyers market.
Happy Halloween! Reyne and Jonathan meet with Katie Cooper and her spooktacular Halloween collectibles. These scary fun pieces are affordable to everyone, from a few dollars to a few hundred. We take a look at a 1940’s jack o’ lantern, some early 1900’s antique postcards, and other tricky trinkets to add to your holiday décor.

LOS ANGELES – An emotional and pointed farewell given by controversial Civil War Colonel John S. Mosby, believed to be one of only two contemporary copies known to be written by him, will be auctioned off as part of Heritage Auctions Los Angeles Signature® Historical Manuscripts & Autographs Auction, Feb. 12. It is estimated at $70,000-$90,000.
