Store up for the Winter - Antiques and Collectibles
Now is the time to start storing up the items that you will sell for the rest of the year.
It sounds like something from a nature book doesn't it? But people are already thinking about having their end-of-season garage or estate sales, and this makes the picking wonderful.
Take advantage of the weather now and stock your shelve with treasures. At shows and flea markets you may find that dealers are more willing to bargain at this time in the year. Research on your computer or get snuggled up to a stack of reference books about your favorite antiques or collectible. Your time is best spent searching for those pieces that are just waiting for you to find them.
I have found this year to be one of my best and I will be sharing these stories with you later on the blogs. But for now I want to encourage you to spend your time wisely in the search. I just noticed were a five dollar Casino Chip from the 1950's was worth $25,000.00 and that sure sent me to my desk to check my collection. I know that almost everyone that visits Las Vegas brings home a chip or two and never thinks of them again, so good hunting. I am still waiting to hear of some treasures that you have found please share them with the rest of us.
