the latest news from the auction scene and the collecting field dealing
with antiques and collectibles online.
this section we hope to provide some insight into both what condition
you should expect our merchandise to be in and how descriptive
we will be in grading it.If you're already familiar with antiques
then you will know that in most cases they were utilitarian meaning
made to serve a purpose and to be used much of the time in everyday
life.What this means is that with many of the items we offer for
sale they can and do show signs of use.This is not to say that
normal use detracts from the pieces character and appeal but with
some types of collectibles such as glass and dinnerware chips,cracks
and scratching ruin the value.We classify all of our inventory
to be in at least average and working condition unless otherwise
noted.What we call average is based on our 20 years in the business
of seeing literally hundreds of thousands of antiques and collectibles
and using that experience to judge what typlifies average condition.Much
of our inventory is in above average condition or better but when
we feel it falls short of our expectations to meet the criteria
of average we tell you as such.Make sure that you take advantage
of our full size pictures to view our inventory more up close
by clicking on the thumbnails on each of our menu pages.In closing
we ask you to remember that much of what we offer is from 50 to
100 years old so for those of you unfamiliar with antiques look
at them for what they are.They are a piece of our american history
and the evolution of modernizing the way we live our daily lives.Learn
to appreciate them in the same ways our ancestors did and let
your imaginations wander for a moment back to a time when life
was much simpler but full of hardship for most.You can also sit
back and laugh and wonder how in the world were they able to even
use many of these things when compared to how we perform similiar
tasks today.Thanks for taking the time to read this and i hope
it will help you with your journey back into time while you explore
