Finding Or Selling Antiques: What's Harder?

The question of the day is:  Finding or selling antiques--what's harder?  Some days it seems both are equally difficult.  I am curious what your experience has been.  Email me and I'll see if I can use your experiences in a future post.

Fake Antiques: Watch Out For Them!

One of the things we really need to watch out for is fake antiques.  It's one thing to know if something is suppose to be an antique or not.  It's quite another thing to identify the fakes.  Here's a great resource!

This book will get you on the straight and narrow to help you identify whether it is the real thing or not.  If you have a copy--great!  If you don't I would suggest getting one as soon as possible.  I use it and you should too.  We all work hard at our craft but there are always those out there who try to pull a fast one.  Don't get caught.

If you have anything to add please feel free to email me at

Welcome to North American Antiques!

Hello and welcome to North American Antiques. I really appreciate that you took the time to stop in. While I won't necessarily be blogging every day I hope to do so frequently. Sometimes I'll have a picture of a treasure I found and sometimes I'll just be making comments. If you have something antique related you'd like to share please feel free and I'll see if I can use it in a blog. Please email me at
