News-Antique.com - Dec 21,2015 - IOLA, Wis. — Everyone loves a good story. For those with a passion for antiques and collectibles, some of the best stories are about ‘favorite finds.’
The unexpected treasure uncovered in a lot box won at auction. The moment a sought-after item is spotted among the displays at a flea market. Rediscovering a cherished example of nostalgia that was once adored, but long forgotten. They all make for great memories, and for stories. Which is exactly what is found in the 7th Annual Favorite Finds edition of Antique Trader.
Page after page of reader-submitted stories make for a charming, informative, inspiring and entertaining read. With tales about turn of the century canvas pencil boxes, 25-cent yard sale paintings with unexpected worth, and examples of how educating other about the auction process can lead to the start of a new collection for the teacher, there is a little bit of something for everyone in this special edition.
As in years past, the Favorite Finds edition is the product of a contest, sponsored by Heritage Auctions. This year’s grand prize winning entry was an interesting story about a ‘battered, worn 1886 leather-bound book’ nestled in a box that came with the primary box of items the bidder was really after. The runner-up entry is the captivating story of how a 1963 Cadillac “Old Girl” offered a widow escape from the heartbreak of losing a spouse, and helped begin a new life journey. It was a difficult choice, with so many wonderful and thoughtful entries, but that’s what makes the Antique Trader 7th Annual Favorites Finds a unique, spellbinding, and must-see digital edition.
