Antiques and Art Dealers
The antiques business is never boring. Antique and art dealers spend much of their workday greeting customers and answering any questions they may have. When business slows down, they clean the store and price inventory. Sometimes people will bring in items for resale. It is up to the dealer to carefully inspect each piece and settle on a price. They rely on pricing manuals such as Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide and Schroeder's Antiques Price Guide, which give guidelines and a suggested price on a wide range of items.
