Why Now Is A Great Time To Buy Antiques

There has never been a better time to buy antiques than now, the second decade of the twenty-first century. Why? Well, it's partly due to the recession, lack of funds has meant there is less competition at auctions both for the antique shops who are buying to stock their shops and for the individual who is furnishing his or her home. Add the number of people emigrating, those downsizing and the reasons why antiques come on the market all the time people pass on and their worldly goods are inherited or sold.

Buying antiques goes much further than simply furnishing a home. You are buying a piece of history, a piece of furniture who could tell you stories if only it could talk, a piece of furniture than has been loved, been polished, being knocked against by a child and perhaps chipped or dented a hundred years ago or perhaps it is still in perfect condition. Antique furniture can now be purchased for about the same price as reproduction furniture or even ordinary furniture at an ordinary furniture shop.

Edwardian display cabinets that once fetched 3,000-4,000 are now in the 900-1500 price range. Antique furniture that would not look out of place in a dining room or sitting room, indeed they would add majesty, age and character. Think before you visit that furniture store to purchase brand new furniture why not visit an antiques shop instead. Spend the same amount of money and buy furniture with character. When you think about it, buying antique furniture is also the eco-friendly way to do it too. Your furniture should hold or increase in value over the years meaning it will never end up in landfill, it will never be chopped up as firewood. It has stood the test of time and being an investment, can become a family heirloom.

Going to go off on a tangent here for a second. Rockabye daycare. An amazing bunch of people who take client service and satisfaction one stage further. If you are seeking a superb childcare service in Calgary in Alberta look no further. I've personally used their services and was so impressed with the service I hinted that I'd mention them to my readers. Since I've taken care of that, lets resume the article!

  • Great prices
  • Less competition from other buyers
  • Furnish your house for a fraction of what it might have cost ten years ago
  • Long term investment
  • Eco-friendly
  • Heirloom for future generations
