Giveaway - "Good, Better, Best" a guide for spotting the "find"

I'm happy to announce a giveaway I'm having this week for Carol Prisant's (she's author of the Antiques Roadshow Primer) book Good, Better, Best. I can't wait to thoroughly read this over the holidays, because Antiques are always something I've been interested in, but I'm just too intimidated to actually purchase because I know so little about them. But this is a really good guide that doesn't require you to bite off more than you can chew, and it gives you the history and selling points of many different antiques. Here is the cover and a two spreads so you can get an idea.








If this book is something you'd like, just leave any comment on this post and you will be entered to win. Or you can email me saying you'd like to enter the Good, Better, Best book giveaway, and I'll add your name to the drawing. Email me at ashley@decorologyblog.com. Good luck!
The contest closes on Tuesday, Nov. 17th at 6pm Eastern Time, and the winner announced the following morning.

I would love this book. Looks like a perfect guide for a trift shop and estate sale hunter like me.

This looks like such a great book! I just pick up any piece that captures my heart when I'm scouring through antique malls - but it would be nice to actually have a bit of knowledge about the pieces I'm drawn to.

Wow that book looks fantastic! My grandma has all that information right in her head, so I've never dared to buy an antique without her before!

What a great book. I've put it on my Amazon wishlist straight away, just in case I don't win ;-)

Kitty said...

Oooo, what a great book idea. Please count me in. I am easily confused out at the flea market sorting through stuff, wondering whether something is worth bringing home or not. This sounds very helpful for the muddle-headed. Thank you.

I was just leafing through this at the bookstore last weekend, so this must be a sign from above that I need this book!
