Antiques 101: What to sell, what to keep

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Wintertime is the perfect time to clean out the junk in your basement or garage…but be careful what you throw out! Christian Lund, Owner of Fancy That Antiques in Wilbraham, gave us a lesson in antiques.

Antiques 101: What to sell, what to keep

SELL:
Silver and gold: Interest rates on housing market will most likely rise this year and low oil prices drive the value of the metals down. Sell it while it is still elevated.
Sell your antique cars: Red hot market
Old watches

KEEP:
China
Old furniture
Sewing machines
Hummels

Not much value currently for your average pieces.
Market will change as things always go in cycles in time.
