With the economy in turmoil and people saving their pennies instead of spending money, we wanted to know what if anything was still going to be hot this coming year. The general public is a little different than collectors. Collectors will pay top dollar for an item if they donít already have it in their collection, is rare or if they think that the price of the item will rise in the future. The general public will buy an antique or collectible based on nostalgia, style, appearance, color and overall functionality.
After some research we found that experts generally agree that people will still pay top dollar for collectibles that they can use to help decorate their homes and use on an everyday basis. One such item is the antique and vintage picture frame. This is nothing new, antique and vintage picture frames have always been sought after by many people because they are indeed functional and can be used to put family photos in, frame a painting that they purchased somewhere else without one or frame their own art that they have created.
Antique and vintage picture frames can vary not only in appearance, material, style and color, but they can also vary in price. Sometimes you can find very nice smaller frames at thrift stores and flea markets for as little as $1. Larger frames, which can date back to the 1800ís or earlier and were made by famous makers, can be found at antique shops for thousands of dollars. Auction houses can also be a good source of antique or vintage picture frames but you have to be careful about everyone bidding on the same thing and driving up the price.
