Noonmark Antiques

Original 154th Semi-Annual York Antiques Show Winds Down

Charles HammellComment

Visitor traffic was lighter than the first two days. Dealer comments indicate that people were buying cheaper items. Dealers who carry that kind of inventory seemed to do well. A few dealers who carry mid-range items did OK, too. But quite a few higher-end dealers sold little or nothing. Sentiment was mixed. Those who did well, of course, were happy. But even those who did not seemed to take it in stride. Melvin Arion did his job by bringing in a steady stream of customers. They just weren't ready to buy higher-value pieces.
