About Me

time travels through coin collections

I never really understood the hobby of coin collecting until I was going through my grandfather's things after he passed away. When I came across his coin collections, I quickly began to see coins in a whole new way. Not only did he collect the coins, but he inserted a short description of when he obtained the coins. For each of his kids' births and his grandchildren's births, he collected a new coin. Coins are not only monetarily valuable, they tell the story of time. I have learned as much as I can about each coin in my grandfather's collection so that others can follow the story of time as it is expressed through collecting coins.

How To Find Affordable Antiquities For Sale

Antiquities are artifacts that are not just antique, but that go back to the middle ages. This can be a highly sought after category of things, but that does not mean that you should give up. If you would like to have the best shot at obtaining some amazing antiquities at prices you can afford, you will want to check out the following options.

Check Estate Sales

Do not make the mistake of assuming that you will not be able to find antiquities for sale at an estate sale or that if you do, the starting bids will be too high for your budget. Many times, when there is a very large auction taking place, there will be some things that will slip past even the best auction organizers. They might not realize the true value of what they have. What may be a priceless ancient artifact may just appear to be some old dusty living room decoration. Of course, this means that you have to be the expert in this scenario. You have to know just what it is that you are looking for and you will need to try to get a close look at it all before the auction begins. Carrying a book or reference guide on antiquities can help you keep a competitive edge when it comes time to place your bids.

Shop At Antique Stores In Small Towns

Even though you might pay a higher price for something than you would at a common used store, the owners of the small town antique store might not realize the real value of the antiquities that they have on the shelves or in their cases. Therefore, you can still end up finding some real bargains in these stores, especially the ones that seem to become overflowing with a lot of amazing things. They might become so overwhelmed that they miss a few key details when it comes to determining the value of what they have. They might even become desperate to move some merchandise to make room for new stuff and will therefore slash many of their prices. After all, small town antique stores generally try to keep a good rotation of things for sale in order to keep up with local interest. If they have the same stuff every time local residents come in, they will start to lose business. You can use this to your advantage and even try to make an offer on the artifacts that catch your eye.
