The antique business has two major problems that limit the growth potential of the business model.
First, your customers are limited, that is, not everybody can afford to buy your wares, they are just very expensive!
Second, your ability to get stock for your business is limited. There are no 'new' products. You have to scrounge around to get stock and what is
out there, is all there is.
So, the number of viable shops is limited by both factors. You also require a great deal of expertise, otherwise you would just get sued time and
I have a Katana that has been looked at now, by five experts. It is a cavalry version. Three experts in the field say it is original while the other
two say it is not. Lol.
