Old Antiques And New Antiques???
I heard a radio ad recently for an antique store in Barrie. They seem to be vintage and “mantiques”, and their tagline was “not your grandmother’s antique store”. (more…)
I found this piece on an on-line buy/sell site. Asking $1000 for it. In my opinion, never going to happen. Not worth $1000 now, and they were never worth $1000. At the peak of the market, maybe $250 to $300 at an auction, but now I would hesitate to even include it in an auction. Good day, maybe $50…bad day, might not be able to sell it! (more…)
Whenever fall rolls around, I think back to the time I ran my antique store.
I had a small store, Highways 400 and 88, just outside of Bradford. I ran the business from 1984-1994. (more…)
