The Antiques Almanac grew out of a need for quality information about antiques collecting for beginning and intermediate collectors. Antiques and collectibles dealers are also welcome to browse the articles and such on this site, but the main purpose is to correctly inform those who have just gotten bitten by the “antique bug.” Once bitten by this pleasant creature, nothing–no bug repellent or 12-step program–will prevent the antiques collector from collecting–and collecting and collecting.

Please look around and come back often.

 

No antiques or collectibles are sold on this Web site. Here, collectors hungry for knowledge about antiquing will find quality content–news, feature articles, tips, offbeat tidbits, book reviews, and more. It’s the goal of Bob Brooke, antiques writer and editor of this site, to make The Antiques Almanac one of the leading antiques content sites on the Web.
