Antiquing can be a wonderful way to find vintage items for one’s home. Whether a shopper is looking for antique furniture, retro jewelry, or historic knick-knacks, a trip to an antique mall can give them a variety of interesting and unique items for their home.
Shopping for antiques can seem like an overwhelming prospect for those who have never done it before. That’s why we’ve put together this list of tips to remember when shopping for antiques:
• Bring a list. Shoppers should have a list of the items they want to purchase, so there is a purpose and a plan for their trip.
• Haggle. Shoppers should never pay full price for an item. Antiquing is all about haggling and negotiating for a lower price.
• Bring cash. Some antique booths may not accept credit cards. Plus, bringing cash will help shoppers stick to their budget.
• Ask questions. Shoppers should ask questions to learn the history surrounding the item they want to purchase. Antique items usually come with a beautiful story, which makes the acquisition even more meaningful.
