Current collecting trends - besides rare, unusual, and quality antiques

January 31st, 2017

Some current collecting trends we’re seeing in the antique industry include primitive items such as cupboards and jelly cabinets with the original paint, pie safes, nice blanket chests, etc. Customers have also been looking for antique cast-iron skillets from Griswold and Wagner, and large three-gallon, crocks.

Recently, the most asked-for items have been vintage advertising pieces from soda and beer companies—including lighted signs, painted wood or porcelain, wall decorations and functional items such as thermometers and storage pieces.
I have noticed the trend in collecting leans toward functional and repurposed pieces that are ready to use in your home or office.

Treasure hunters are always seeking the rare and unusual, and it’s a best practice to buy your finds in the best condition possible.
