A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art
People collect antiques for many different reasons and therefore have many different views.
1. Some people collect antiques because they hold sentimental value. For example, I own a ceramic parrot that had been given to me by my
grandparents, a cupboard from my other grandparents and a very old doll
that had been given to me by my great aunt.
2. My in-laws once owned an antique business which they set up for sales
and auctions. Their basement was always filled with a treasure trove of
fascinating and interesting items. They could tell you the worth of any
item in the basement. They loved restoring old pieces, not so much so
that they could sell it for more but simply because they gained
satisfaction from doing so.
3. My son enjoys collecting antique games and old books and even
collects them. One of his favorite antiques are the tiddly winks games
which he has collected from all over the world.
4. Antique lovers enjoy the chase more than anything. They enjoy
searching through stores and antique shops all over the country
searching for that specific or unusual item they been looking for.
5. Some people look for antiques as simply a hobby but they very seldom
buy anything. They simply enjoy looking at what different areas of the
country have the offer. It can be a lot of fun searching through antique
6. Sometimes people who want to furnish their home look for antiques.
Antiques of different time periods will often work well together to
create a beautiful home.
7. Their other people who deal in the buying and selling of antiques.
They are hard-core, know the value of pretty much everything, and always
want to buy low and sell high. These folks typically are only
interested in the price itself.
Collecting antiques can be a wonderful experience and provide enjoyment for people of all ages.
