ANTIQUES CAN –-
SAVE THE PLANET
We hear of rare old pieces bringing huge prices, but most antiques
are surprisingly plentiful and affordable. They can cost less than comparable brand-new items, and are usually of higher quality. Antiques maintain or grow in value; today’s new table, chair, lamp,clock or dish set is tomorrow’s worthless throw-away.
Antiques, made decades or centuries ago by our ancestor artisans, connect us directly to the past. Each tells a story which we may
know, explore or just imagine. All have been preserved through
the years for us to enjoy now and hand on to the future.
Every brand-new product, mass-manufactured thousands of miles
away, consumes precious resources and energy to make and transport, and worsens global warming.
When you purchase antiques from local dealers and auction houses, you’re buying smart and buying “green”!
