|Not an antique but charming|
Take this box for example, while traditionalists preferring 18th century dry sinks turn up their nose at a display such as this, everyone else wants it even if just for the box itself. This box is definitely vintage [over 20 years old with redeeming aesthetic value.]
The owner is pricing it at $60 and hopes to get it. As dealers know today, it's all about "the look." While old-style antiquers bemoan the addition of folk antiques to the markets in general, they will need to keep the younger collectors in mind. Otherwise, they will lose out to the flea market phenomenon which is very hot with them right now.
