4.0 out of 5 stars How to Buy and Sell Antiques
A most useful and entertaining book, which is written in an easy to follow manner by someone who has obviously had considerable experience.

We find that because the content is well broken up into specific areas we use it as a reference point when circumstances arise over which we need additional information. Fiona Shoop sets done some very basic points and...

This review is from: How To Buy & Sell Antiques 3e: A Comprehensive Guide...from Boot Sales to Full-time Dealing (Paperback)
Having always been interested in, perhaps one day buying and selling. This book has shown me how to go about this.
From car boots to the internet the reader is shown how to buy and sell. What I found helpful was how to sell/buy on the internet.
This is a well written and clear book.

Also, doesn't miss a single chance to plug the trade magazine that she works for, at every opportunity, and seems to rubbish a certain TV show, that at a guess, I would say, is one that doesn't use her as an expert.
