Stories of the Past
Just the thoughts that will come when you look at that nineteenth century lantern on your fireplace mantle will have you appreciating your new hobby all the more. Who owned the lantern when it was first made? Who else thought this vase would be perfect for their home?  A good antique can connect you to people of similar tastes from the past.

Built to Last
Antiques are still around for a reason, and that is due to the fact that they were built to withstand the years of use.  Additionally, regardless of what trends come and go in design, your antiques will always be in style.

Environmentally Friendly
Buying antiques is better for the environment than purchasing newly manufactured items, especially those that aren’t built to last and may need to be thrown away in a few years.
