"The Hunt" for Antiques/Collectibles

Posted by Jo Flora | E-Mail The Author

Did you ever wonder where in the world all these wonderful antiques/collectibles that you see online were found? Antiquers/collectors call it "the hunt"! We're constantly on "the hunt" for something to bring to our buyers or to add to our own collections!

My wonderful husband, Denis, goes with me every weekend as we travel several states on "the hunt". We've parked at a farm a mile away from an estate auction and climbed into a farm wagon to be driven to the next farm to attend the auction. Did I mention the farm wagon went through the bean field to get the the next farm?

One early and very cold January day, we attended an estate auction in a blizzard! Now I told Denis that we'd be able to get some awesome deals because no one else was dumb enough to stand outside in the blowing snow to buy treasure. Boy was I wrong! I learned there are a lot of reallllly serious collectors that will suffer through almost anything to get the next treasure for their collection. 537 bid cards were out that day. People in Indiana want their stuff!

The RARE Red American Sweetheart Salver that is currently listed in our ebay store is but one of our many finds.

We carry many different kinds of china dinnerware including Spode, Royal Doulton, Haviland, Homer Laughlin, Johnson Bros in addition to art pottery such as Roseville and Weller. In addition to the American Sweetheart, we have Northwood blue custard, King's Crown dinner plates and other glass. If it's beautiful and we love it, it usually ends up in our store eventually.

Anyway, I sincerely hope that you will take a minute to browse through our store and see if your next treasure lurks within.
