FALL WEST PALM BEACH ANTIQUES AND COLLECTIBLES SHOW OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 2, 2008 Items that have been recycled from an earlier period and are perfectly useable today can be found at every West Palm Beach Antiques and Collectibles Show
News-Antique.com - Oct 11,2008 - With much of the world’s attention turned to “green” issues that involve renewable energy sources, conservation of existing resources and the recycling of existing assets, now is a great time to take advantage of the opportunity offered in the antiques and collectibles fields. The West Palm Beach Antiques and Collectibles Show offers between 400 and 1200 dealers with innumerable choices for recycling perfectly good, attractive and useful articles priced very reasonably.
Suppose you are redecorating an office or showroom. Why spend thousands of dollars on new furniture and fixtures when you can acquire an antique desk with some history and character for half the price of a new one? And save a few hundred trees and a lot of finish material in the process. The same holds true for lighting, accessories, art, upholstered goods, linens and a host of other categories. It is just as easy to find a valuable and intriguing collectible for an appropriate gift as it is to buy something new, saving the additional resources used in the new production. Shopping in a concentrated area of well supplied and knowledgeable dealers also saves fuel and emissions by driving to only one location rather than trekking around town to a dozen or more. As an added bonus to the resources you may save, you will have the opportunity to discuss interesting items with knowledgeable dealers who may be able to shed some light on a minor mystery you have run across.
The entire concept of the West Palm Beach Antiques and Collectibles Show is to give decorators, designers, collectors, hobbyists and the curious shoppers the easy and convenient path to help the “green” movement along. A final bonus is the fact that many antiques and collectibles hold their value or even appreciate over time rather than losing value immediately as so many new items tend to do.
