I Antique Online

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

am enjoying starting to gradually work through all the 'stuff' I have to sort, now I have joined this site! ... was stunned to find the old hunting prints (which I will post soon) that I remembered being small and cute, really well framed and much larger than I remembered when they were hanging up. I have a lot of Victorian furniture that I would love to find out about as well, though I dont want to part with a lot of it. The other day a tenant of mine discovered that a beautiful old 'table' could turn into a long chair!!! ... I simply never knew this...lol ... an investigative journey, I love history and the Victorians - I doubt I will become a collector but it is certainly intriguing.........Cathrynn..:)

I can tell you by experience to take it slowly. When my mother passed, I went to help my dad "clean out" some of the house where mom had her mother's things stored plus all the things from her antique and collectible store. I began tossing things out without even finding out about them. Then, one day...I began to notice them with a new appreciation and thankfully stopped the "cleaning out" and began a business of my own. My mom's store was called Grandma's Treasures. So, in her honor, I named my website: www.grandmastreasuresonline.com. I have so enjoyed this past year!

thanks, Ellene...I have just had a peep at your Collectible Treasure Journey....this sounds so wonderful....I gather from this that you inherited from your mother and father? so wonderful to track back the history, I am beginning to realise this..:) .... I am having someone come to value some of my mothers items in her flat, though they dont go back as far as my mother and father in laws, they are very precious to me. My sons wanted them valued with a view to getting them out of the flat I think, but I want to go very slowly with this - and will just move more things in here!!!!

I think you will become an expert in all these things and this is just the beginning of your journey. Here's my Collectible Treasure Journey you might find interesting.

It sounds like the treasures you have right under your nose have deeper history and more potential than most people's. So glad you are enjoying everything. Just take it one step at a time.
