NEW YORK – When it comes to business and finance, it’s hard to beat the goldmine of information found in Forbes magazine’s print editions and on their website. For over a century, Wall Street and financial markets worldwide have been their domain. But it may surprise you to know that their experts don’t just focus on stocks, bonds and dealmakers. They’re savvy shoppers, too.

Barden Prisant, a contributor who covers the arts for Forbes from an appraiser’s perspective, recently wrote about a topic familiar to many ACN readers: finding unique and unusual holiday gifts on LiveAuctioneers.

Selections discussed in Barden’s article run the gamut from historical mementos – an autographed photo of five US presidents (shown at top of page) – to 1960s/’70s fashion – a striking Paco Rabanne chainmail hood, shown below.
