Booklist Review

Antique dealer and collector Ketchum offers practical advice to antique aficionados considering turning their hobby into a potentially profitable business venture. All facets of the antique business are covered, from obtaining financing and locating antiques to tips on avoiding fakes and methods of attracting repeat clientele. Spin-off activities such as furniture restoration, refinishing, appraisal, and interior decoration are addressed as well. According to Ketchum, the key to becoming a successful retail or wholesale antique dealer is to become knowledgeable about antiques--and this encouraging introduction seems a good place to begin. Calendar of antique shows and list of antique show managers appended. No index. --Sue-Ellen Beauregard
