Taylor Swift goes antiquing

Dealers and organizers of the Music Valley and Tailgate Antique shows in Nashville are debunking the theory that younger people don't go antiquing after Country Music Award winner Taylor Swift and family spent time shopping at the two shows in October.
"In between looking and shopping for antiques, Taylor and her family stopped at many of the 300 booths to sign autographs and pose for pictures with the dealers," said Gail Taylor, publicist for the shows.

The average age of shopper's... buyer's in my shop My Granny's Attic Antiques in Lenexa is 31 - mid 30s. This age group is buying, their first home, or thinking in that direction, and recognize the value and common sense in purchasing antique or vintage furniture over the big box fall apart in 5 yrs. furniture.
