Where Antiques Originate, and How You Can Find More!

By Michael Temple

It's important to understand where antiques originate. Many antique buyers make the mistake of mis-understanding the process by which antique items are found.

Many collectors and dealers waste valuable time searching in places where they believe that these items are in great abundance. But a true understanding of where antiques originate seems to have eluded many well meaning antique dealers and collectors.

Its elementary Watson!

If you want to find fresh-to-the-market antiques and collectibles, you need to go where they are in great abundance, and where they originate!

Antiques do not orginate at auctions, or at flea markets, or at antique shows. Antiques originate in peoples homes. This is a fundamental truth for 99% of all antiques that you will ever see.

Another truth that many people overlook.

The other simple fact is, that most antiques that you are most likely to get a great deal on reside in the homes of people who are older. Young people do not, as a general rule have antiques in the abundance that older people do. Why? Because older people came from a generation that saved everything, and you will find that a majority of the time they have kept it all!

From the 1950s toys in the closet to the old toaster that was just too good to throw away, older folks still have most of everything they ever owned.

Where will you spend your 'prime-time?'

Knowing these two fundamental truths about where antiques originate, begs a big question. Knowing that antiques originate in peoples homes, and that antiques are most likely to reside older peoples homes, where will you be attempting to spend a majority of your prime time? It tooks me years to understand the following principles.

1. To buy more fresh antiques you have to see more antiques.

2. To see more antiques, you must look at more household accumulations on a consistant basis.

3. To accomplsih this, you simply must get into more peoples homes where the antiques originate.

Knowing and understanding these principles will put you light years ahead of your competition! Believe me, I know antique dealers and collectors, and most of them find their antiques through one of only 5 methods. They find them through garage / estate sales, auctions, 'goodwill' type stores, flea markets and 'pickers'.

Knowing and understand the above principles will help you to focus on where you will find the most peoples homes. If you want to be incredibly successful, you have to go where the antiques originate. If youre truly serious about finding fresh antiques its time to focus on that and only that! That focus will take you farther than you ever thought possible!

More Info On antique vintage furniture

Antiques is their primary business. As in any exchange, dealing with someone who plans to be in the business on a continuing basis is much better for the customer. The reason for this is that those who have an ongoing antique business live or die by reputation. If they treat someone badly or cheat them, word of mouth will kill their business rather quickly. Therefore, they are motivated, if they wish to make a living selling antiques, to be honest.

START WITH EASY FIXES. When you begin repairing antique furniture, it's smart to learn with simple projects. For example, a loose stretcher on a chair is a good place to start. Broken hardware can also be an ideal project for a beginner. If you're going to replace it with identical reproduction hardware, the repair can take just a few minutes. Always try to learn with "reversible repairs." This means a process that can be reversed with little or no damage to the furniture. You can always remove a screw if its head looks too new against older wood. But, if you've pried wood veneer off a table and--too late--realized that the veneer was important, it can be impossible to restore it.
