1. There is a LOT of junk out there. There is a perception of value in certain things on this sub but those things are NOT actually rare and are still desired by a relatively few. There are the outlier unicorns worth money, but don't simply run with what someone else tells you it's worth or the first google results. Like for example those cheesy 1980s lotus lamps marked up by antique shops but still being manufactured.

  2. I don’t think you’ll have a problem scoring 70s and 80s stuff; a lot of times those things end up in thrift shops when their owners pass away or downsize and move to assisted living, etc. People who decorated their homes in the 80s aren’t at that point yet, so I think there’s plenty still out there.

  3. When I first started furnishing my home, it was all 40s, 50s, 70s and 70s stuff. Nobody wanted it in the late 80s.

  4. I hope so when I was a teen in 2010 it was hard to get 70-90 stuff people were still holding on to it and didn’t see much for sale now it’s like everyone’s selling I’m like crap and I’m renting now so I already have so much stuff I can’t add more to it right now nor do I have any place to put it. But i have seen manufacturers making the 50-80 stuff like you said and i was glad to see that but it probably won’t stick like you said it’s a niche so it’s expensive

  5. Don’t worry, there is no way the 70’s “Early American” stuff will stay trendy for long. It was ugly then and it’s still ugly now. All of those buyers will be unloading it then you can buy that stuff.

  6. Those pieces have been decreasing over the years. We have year of people buying them and flipping them. Plus over time you will have the amount of the pieces decrease. Things break in time and there are no replacements. Just get something that is good enough and keep looking and hope to get lucky!
