Holy Crappy Economy for Furniture Batman!
No, I don't think the boy wonder ever used that phrase but regardless, It's hard to be a piece of antique furniture these days. Shipping has pretty much been its downfall. You have a figural glass top table? Great. Selling it for only $100! Amazing. Oh, it's going to cost me how much to ship? See ya!
This is a Victorian table we have on consignment here in the store, and yes, it was just passed at a starting bid of $95. All the furniture in the store is priced ridiculously just to get it out of the store. What's the secret? Everyday there is another call for furniture. It's constant. Customers are just not interested and more and more shops are liquidating at extremely low prices to just get the merchandies out of the store. Customers also have a wide variety of choice nowadays. I have no idea how modern day furniture stores are still in business.
