AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE AMERICAN ANTIQUE DEALER/COLLECTOR. I sold an item last week to an American collector for $1000.00 CDN.I gave him a discount of 15% bringing the cost to him of $850.00 CDN.,however, I told him to pay me in Canadian funds which he did.His $850.00 CDN. cost him around $650.00 US Funds.

About a year ago the Canadian dollar was at or slightly higher than the American dollar, however things change. The American economy is stronger and as well, Canada being an “oil” exporter, we are at the mercy of the oil price slide. Our Canadian dollar dropped, so,think about takeing advantage of this foreign exchange opportunity and also, we have been known to haggle sometimes 15 to 20%. Our prices are the same as they were a year ago.

Thank You.
