    We'll continue our look at the current state of the antiques market in our program this coming Sunday evening, August 28, 2016. I've selected pieces from many different categories to highlight the sometimes divergent pricing trends. Some things are hot; some are not! The general state of the market is obviously up (along with all the other asset classes), but trends in the Victorian space are not as positive. I can't imagine anything hotter than shabby chic--but will it last? Come along with me as we stroll through the aisles of the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver picking out interesting items to assess. We're on at the usual time Sunday: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Hope you can join us! Gary

    On Monday the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Nasdaq Composite, and the S&P 500 all hit all-time highs. There is less than 5% unemployment. Inflation is less than 2%. Interest rates have been historically low for 9 years. Gas is cheap. So what is everybody, not only many antique dealers, complaining about?? Maybe people just always complain, no matter what. Certainly no politician is going to come out & say that if you're not doing well it's your own fault! You've got to blame somebody else, right? So, for years I've been making the case that prices for antiques are rising & that they continue to rise. It's just that the game is now played differently. So in this week's show and continuing next week in Part II I'll be looking at current prices in many categories & comparing them to prices back in the good old days. When I've done this kind of show before, I took examples from auction houses. This time I'll be going through the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver to find representative pieces to examine & compare. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, August 21, 2016, for a look at The Current State of the Antiques Market. We'll be on at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    In all the 6 years I've been doing these shows we've never featured Fiesta dinnerware "Fiestaware"! For years I tried to persuade 2 of the great Fiesta collectors to come on my show, but I think they were too bashful. So, I'm doing this week's show without them (but I'm borrowing part of their outstanding collection to feature)!. The Hoffman's of Denver truly do have one of the world's great collections of vintage Fiestaware--all the shapes, all the colors, so I had to be selective + I added one piece I just picked up myself. There are the 5 colors debuted in 1936, the turquoise in 1937, the '50's colors in 1950. We'll look at the history of the Homer Laughlin Company & track the introduction of the shapes & colors, and when they were discontinued, and we'll look at the marks to help us determine age. If you're ever in the Denver area be sure to stop in to the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall & ask to look at the Hoffman's great collection of Fiestaware. You'll probably find shapes you never knew existed. We're on at the usual time this coming Sunday evening, August 14, 2016: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM EDT, 8PM EDT. Hope you can join us. Gary

    Why the week before the “Santa Fe Indian Market” is so important. Plain and simple: It's a chance to be part of a world-class celebration of Native American tribal traditions and history "not duplicated anywhere"  Just hearing them speak of their history and culture is something never to be forgotten.  Lectures are held daily at the Plaza Stage and yeah I know it’s pretty warm right now but they have shaded areas in front of the stage. It’s all there for the taking - music, dance, food, culture, literature, history, films and on and on. It all begins August 16, 2016. Equally as impressive, of course, is the Santa Fe Indian Market which begins August 20, 2016, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. Artists, designers and craftpersons display contemporary and traditional native arts that are second to none! The 2016 Schedule of Indian Market Week Events can be found at http://swaia.org/. Regardless of whether you are a fan of Native American art and culture, don’t miss the chance to be part of a legacy.  Everyone, from the little ones on up, will be truly inspired and come away with a whole new appreciation of everything that is Native American.
