I would say that it runs the whole gamut. When you come out to antique and flea markets, a lot of times you can find things for a few dollars. Then, there are other pieces that are really hard to find. Candlewick pieces will run from $2000 to $5000 dollars.


Q: People can buy and sell their Imperial glass items on e-bay?

You are talking to one of the first ones who did that. Yes. E-bay has totally changed the antique "collectable business." In the past, people used to go out to auctions. The dealers would go to auctions and buy glass. They would then sell it at an antique show or at an antique mall. Since e-bay became a part of the fabric of our society, in the late 90s it has been much more competitive for the dealers and for the shops. Now, the average person can go out and find a piece of low-priced glass at a yard sale and turn around and sell it on e-bay. Now, just to give you quick example, when my wife and I started collecting Candlewick, we would get on e-bay and there would be 50 or 60 items of Candlewick. If you go to e-bay today there is likely to be about 700 or 800 Candlewick items listed.
