What do you collect? Whether it’s art pottery or souvenir spoons, collecting can be a way to have fun, make family memories, or even invest in the antiques of the future!
Choosing what to collect can be as simple as looking around your home. What gives you a warm feeling every time you see it? Maybe it’s your vintage wooden chairs gathered around your kitchen table, or perhaps you love the botanical prints on your family room wall.
Don’t be afraid to mix the whimsical with the good. Who says it has to all be collector’s items? An appealing addition found at a rummage sale can enhance and extend your collection.
Display your items in cycles. Choose a favorite piece to highlight monthly. You’ll enjoy your selections more when pieces are rearranged periodically.
What do you collect? Or what would you LIKE to? Your friendly local resale or consignment shopkeeper will be happy to keep an eye out and call you when something likely comes in. Who knows:
The shop might even run across something you’ve wanted for years!
