Not my story but some good friends who were antique dealers at the same time as us. We went to the Brimfield, MA antique shows in the fall session. We were just buying but our friends were selling and set up on the same site they had been for many years. Their show opened on Weds. They brought a really nice Ohio made painted cupboard. We helped them unload the truck during the initial frenzy (no unloading allowed until the show opened). The cupboard sold almost instantly once we got it off the truck, handing a wad of cash to our friend. The guy wanted to leave it there so we moved it over to a corner of the canopy we had set up. About a half hour later the guy came back with a lady in tow, showed it to her and she bought it, peeling off hundred dollar bills from a big roll. They left it there. Another half hour or so passed and the lady comes back with another lady, showed the cupboard and sold it to her. This happened one more time before the day was done, price going from about $1,700 to over $5,000 some. We helped the last lady load it on top of a Subaru that she was putting on the ferry back to Long Island. Never saw so much cash change hands over one item that never moved in my life.
