Defining Antiques & Collectibles


Generally among experts, something is considered antique when it is 100 years old or older. An antique item is normally well designed and crafted and some may even consider it a piece of art because of its function and design. In addition, an antique is normally a rare item that not many other people own because time has passed it by.  Although many antiques appreciate in value and purchased and sold as investments, other antiques hold no monetary value except to the person who owns it, the value being more nostalgic or personal.  That is the difference between antique and memorabilia, which should not be confused with collectibles.          MORE > > >

More Buyers Turning to Thrift Stores These Days


Thrift stores, sometimes known as second hand stores and thrift shops, are normally shops that are run by charitable organizations.  Their inventory usually comes by way of donation and a lot of times, depending on the organization, their employees are actually volunteers, which helps keep costs down.  It used to be that only people looking for a bargain shopped at these second hand stores, but with the economy taking a roller coaster ride, more and more people are turning to these stores to help make ends meet.          MORE > > >

The Always Collectible Zippo Lighter


Almost since the beginning, when in 1932 George G. Blaisdell founded the Zippo Manufacturing Company, Zippo lighters became popular and collectible.  Because they were windproof, they first, became popular with the American GI’s, who could be seen in the foxholes and trenches lighting up.  Although it has gone through modifications, changes in design and finish updates, the Zippo lighter and it’s internal works have not changed much after seventy six years and it is still as popular and with collectors as ever.          MORE > > >

Ever walk into someone’s house and it is filled to the brim with collections of knick knacks and Tchotchkes to where you are afraid to knock something over?  We have been to a few of those places, including estate sales in the local area where we wonder how anyone could have lived in such a house.  Then we have to examine the question, “what were these people thinking?”  The answer might be, the “Antiques Roadshow” and eBay.           MORE > > >
