“This is a fun and painless way to give yourself a firm grounding in the wide wonderful world of antiques and collectibles.”

Do you own pieces you think might be valuable — but don’t know where to go for a reliable appraisal? Relax. Antiquing For Dummies answers all your antiquing questions—and more.

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve already gotten your feet wet, this fun, friendly guide will give you the savvy you need to cruise, schmooze, bargain for, and care for antiques with confidence. In no time you’ll be able to:
