Summary
Millions of Americans are drawn to antiques and flea market culture. This world has the air of a lottery, where a $20 purchase could net you six figures. Master dealer Curt Avery, the unlikely star of Killer Stuff and Tons of Money, plays that lottery every day, and he wins it more than most. Occasionally he gets lucky, but more often he draws on a deep knowledge of America's past and the odd, fascinating and beautiful objects that have survived it
