I Antique Online

A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

Hey everyone I was wondering your opinions on adding collectibles to your stores and booths - Our store does collectibles and we have a huge market in it, but I often wonder if it hurts the sales of the True Antiques and Vintage Retro Items or if it boosts them - and in this day and age is selling antiques alone just a fools game, what with the newer generations lack of interest in it... Any Thoughts

I think collectibles go hand in hand with each other. people might come in for one thing and then notice your collectibles and possibly buy. Your collectibles can be a positive to your business.
I think a "mix" is just fine.....so many times "collectibles" overlaps with vintage retro (people who collect vintage kitchem items for instance) and antiques......people collecting antique irons, (or whatever).......so I am not sure you can always separate the categories.....or am I not seeing the question correctly or what you are considering collectibles? Collectibles can mean so many things to different people......just my thoughts.
