Not lacking. I'm scanning six or seven different auction sites today, and so far I'm seeing a lot of cheddar being exchanged for things most of us would pass right by. For example, I saw hand-sized ceramic ware fetching realized prices from $300. to $7,000., very few of which looked especially attractive to me, and I am a visual-oriented collector above all else. It has to pop in some way. Most were not eye-popping, and most were not extremely old. 19th to early 20th century.

My conclusion: Yes, all the talk about prices being down is true (every dealer of every type of collectible says the market is down for everything except the most sought after). Regardless, there is a LOT of money still exchanging hands for all kinds of things. Early Americana is one such active area.

Perhaps people are looking for something more about fun and less about $
