These new services seem pretty high-priced at $22 per month on top of your Worthpoint membership. But I probably spent the equivalent amount on reference books and price guides in my first few years of learning the antiques biz, so Worthpoint might certainly be worth it for a new-ish dealer. i suppose you could save up a ton of stuff to research, and subscribe sporadically.
Good for Worthpoint for putting so much info online.
