June  is for weddings and the Brides are looking for hobnail milk glass to use for table decor.  Look for the marked pieces of Fenton, Westmoreland Glass or Imperial Glass.  Still affordable and can be cheaper than new pieces.

What is this?

Watch this page for future pictures with research and appraisals on antiques that come across my table while publicly speaking at antique appraisal events.

Outdoor antique trends

What is the current trend in antiques?  Anything architectural.   If you can use it outside that is even better.  The trend for outdoor spaces has included vintage metal, industrial and wooden farm furniture.  Take a second look at a piece before you edit it.   Can you paint it to weather proof it?  Can your repurpose it?  Price out some of the outdoor decor for sale in todays marketplace and you will see the benefit of recycle, reuse and repurpose.
