Learn how to collect antiques like a pro “I love when things are scraped, beaten, and chipped. Those qualities take me back in time and I never tire at looking at them.” -Michelle Pate In today's world, everything that's old can be described as antiques and generally speaking, that's quite true. A product is considered to be an antique if it is over 100 years old or is rare enough to have some value. In other words, these are old items that are in limited supply. An antique is something collectible. It may be a piece of antique furniture that you want to collect to enhance the look of a room, or a piece of antique pottery to decorate a corner cupboard, or some antique books, an antique camera and photographs, antique jewelry, antique money, an antique car, antique clocks, or antique watches that you want to hand down to your grandchildren but the items must be rare enough to be considered an antique. The others are just secondhand goods junk. Learn the hidden secrets of the art of collecting antiques the right and best ways. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Burkhead.
