Reader Survey: Good Time To Get Deals on Antiques?

Reading one of our favorite blogs, the Brick House (where Morgan finds the best finds ever and makes us jealous, but we still love her because she's as frugal as we are) we noticed that she's been able to get some wicked deals on antiques because so many stores are being hit hard by the downturn and discounting classic items. It's not great news for shop owners but have you gotten deals at antique stores and flea markets in the last couple of months? If you own an antiques store or sell at flea markets have you been more likely to discount your wares?

Morgan found the coffee table in the picture for 70% off recently and it definitely made us drool. She's shopping in the Inland Empire and Palm Springs so it might be different than in LA proper, but have you guys been finding deals? Are you spending money on furniture these days or buying pieces that might be a little out of your price range but still a great deal?
