The world of art, antiques, and collectibles may seem intimidating, even overwhelming.
Sensory overload in a well stocked antique shop is completely normal. If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable asking questions about a piece of art, porcelain, or colonial wood,... you are not alone.
There’s a lot of history embedded in these things, and it’s easy to feel confused as you try to find decor to suit your individual style and home.
This blog intends to help you understand why certain items command premium prices while others, which seem similar, are available for a fraction of the price.
And, it will provide you with an insider’s view of what goes on behind the scenes in a modern consignment business.
Finally, it will entertain you because some of these behind the scenes views are not always glamorous.
Ideally, this blog hits all of the above points, and you find a more well informed appreciation of this unique world.
New original content will be provided regularly, and will cover a variety of topics, including:
- The 100+ year history of the Vintage Home Decor family, the store today, and the modern technology behind our services
