• Antiques & Antiquing

    Antiques:

    Antiques (from the Latin antiquus, meaning old) are defined as objects that have reached an age which makes them a witness of a previous era (usually about 75 years old) for their beauty, utility, condition, and rarity.  They usually reveal a high degree of craftsmanship, attention to design, and construction that add to its market value compared to similar objects of recent times.  An automobile, by the way, is considered an antique when 25 years or older. Each antique carries its own intriguing story of a vanished culture, and the historical details surrounding it are as interesting as the piece itself. Dealers are very friendly and welcome answering questions and giving guidance.
