A thousand years.
    Traces the efforts of master antiques dealer Curt Avery to discover valuable and historically relevant items at flea markets, discussing flea market culture and some of Avery's unlikely successes. Includes numerous observations about major east-coast antique venues such as Brimfield as well as thoughts about the PBS television program "Antiques Roadshow". Author protects the identity of the main character and many other dealers with extensive use of pseudonyms (p. 279).
