Buying Antiques: Expert Secrets for Spotting a Find

I had the privilege to chat with Carol Prisant, author of the upcoming Good, Better, Best: Trade Secrets for Spotting a "Find," a book which started out as a column of the same name that Carol wrote for House Beautiful. Carol is also the author of both Antiques Roadshow encyclopedias, a professional appraiser, a former antiques dealer (she started dealing when she was 25) and the American editor of The World of Interiors, which is to say, the woman knows a thing or two (or maybe two hundred) about shopping for vintage and antique goods. Carol was gracious enough to share some of her secrets.
