Top 10 Places to Find Antiques
See which places you can score some really valuable antiques. Antiques range from extremely valuable to nearly worthless, although some can make great center pieces to you interior and exterior decorating.
Antique dealers are another great place to look for antiques. However, like auctions you will usually be paying a significant premium for any pieces you come across.
You always hear stories of people buying pieces at a yard sale only to discover a more valuable piece inside or behind a picture frame. While this is more like winning the lottery and very unlikely there are many other benefits to going to yard sales to look for antiques. The great thing about yard sales is people are looking to get rid of their excess and are usually willing to part with items very cheaply. Also, many homeowners running yard sales do not have the experience that an auctioneer or antique dealer has and do not know how to accurately appraise the value of pieces.
