Pioneer Auto Show has variety to purchase-from cars to Betty Boop
– By Pioneer Auto MuseumEven with the possibility of the United States slipping into another recession in 2011, art and antiques prices around the world are rising, according to a 2010 British survey. Investors are looking for safe places to put their funds.
The survey reported a 17% increase in the prices of art and antiques, with silver and jewelry the strongest sectors due to the rising values of precious metals. Art was another strong sector.
"Even with a rough economy, arts and antiques have remained pretty resilient as an investment," said Dave Geisler, owner of Pioneer Auto Show in Murdo, S.D.
