Where Antiques Originate and How You Can Find Them
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.
It's 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
people's 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
1950's 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 people's homes, and that antiques are most likely to reside in
older people's homes, where will you be attempting to spend a
majority of your prime time? It tooks me years to understand the
1. To buy more fresh antiques you have to see more
2. To see more antiques, you must look at more household
accumulations on a consistant basis.
3. To accomplish this, you simply must get into more people's
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
Knowing and understand the above principles will help you to
focus on where you will find the most antiques...in people's
If you want to be incredibly successful, you have to go where
the antiques originate. It's time to focus on that and only that!
That focus will take you farther than you ever thought
