News-Antique.com - Aug 10,2012 - At Value My Stuff, we’re trying something new. In addition to our Blog, we’re starting a series of weekly Video Blogs discussing a whole variety of topics that we hope will be of interest to everyone engaged in the world of Antiques and Collectables – please do leave comments, share or even embed. We’d love to know what you think.
So far we've covered car boot sales, Olympic Memorabilia, restoration, wedding and engagement rings, and surprise valuations - the ValueMyStuff customer who discovered the bowl her cat liked to sleep in was worth $200,000.
In his latest blog, our founder Patrick van der Vorst asks if you have any hidden antique gems in your home. Could that old bike, toaster or typewriter be worth good money? Patrick gives you tips on what kinds of brands and items to look out for, not just in your house but at car boot sales and junk shops.
And if you’re going to a car boot sale, don’t miss last month’s video blog on the subject. Another thing worth keeping an eye out for in these kinds of places is antique cutlery, including silver spoons and forks.
Don’t forget our competition to win 1 of 3 iPod Shuffles. We’ve had our first winner, but there are still two more Shuffles to give away – just come and “like” us on Facebook for a chance to win!
