Antique Furniture Sale

It is nice to have antique items around your house, thier age reminds you of history and how things change so quickly. Often antique furniture is a prime example of how things can be made to last – you can purchase some pieces of antique furniture that are over 200 years old and still going strong. But not everyone can afford such fantastic furniture! At auction you can however find excellent examples of older furniture and fittings that are of durable excellent quality at a similar price to new but lesser quality furniture. Personally with furniture I think secondhand is great if its a good solid quality piece. You can find a whole range of different antique furniture styles in the so named section of collectables now – just click the antique chair!!!

Victorian Collectables

Rather than look at complete era’s we usually try to break down collections to the smallest possible here at collectables-now, however the victorian era has brought about so many different Victorian collectables that we think it needs one big collection category itself, where you can find all the usual Victorian collectables and antiques you would expect, as well as a whole lot you wouldn’t. We may at a later stage look more in depth at each type of collectable from queen victoria’s era, but for now you will have to enjoy just our Victorian category!

Postcards

When you go on holiday do you find yourself sending postcards home? Its a funny thing we do because generally we don’t see people for a week or two without feeling the need to send them something, but as soon as we leave the country the first thing we do is send home a postcard, if not to rub it in that we are away and they are not! Collectable postcards are proof that this a long standing habit. Whether you do or you don’t, collectable post cards can be a great collection!
