I have not even thought of that. In this area we have a countless number of antique shops, being right next to one of the worlds largest antique show/flea market in Brimfield, MA. Everyone seems to want a bit of the action, my small town has 3 antique shops alone, Hampden, MA has antique shops and an auction house, Palmer, MA has at least 3 or 4 large antique shops. That isn't even taking Sturbridge, MA into account, there is a lot of competition around here.
