Finding antique furniture for sale is not difficult, if you know where to look. There are many more options available, than just going to the local antique store. Antique furniture can be found in various places locally, as well as online.
One of the best places to find antique furniture is at Estate Sales. These are total house liquidations and you get a great discount, because you aren't paying for markups from dealers and store owners. Estate Sales usually advertise their upcoming sales in the newspaper, but look online as well.
Most of the stuff that gets listed on Craig's List is newer, but antique furniture is occasionally available. If there is something particular that you are after, like a Victorian tea table, or a Chippendale chair, keep an eye on the current listings.
Auctions are fun to go to, and you can find great antique furniture. Go to the preview, usually the day before or early the same day as the auction, and look over the furniture to make sure it is what you want and in good shape.
Your local antique store will have antique furniture for sale. Get to know the dealers and you can tell them if you are particularly interested in a certain type of furniture. They will keep an eye out for those pieces for you and can result in you getting exactly what you want.
You can find just about anything you want on eBay. The only drawbacks is that you can't inspect it personally, and you have to pay for shipping or live close enough to pick it up. For the best eBay experience, make sure you ask lots of questions BEFORE the end of the auction, to make sure it is what you really want.
Nice variety of places to find antique furniture. We love the country auctions, too -- although often the furniture is "in the rough!" Your ideas are better!
Great list for antique hunters. My husband and I love estate sales and antique malls. Well, I probably love them more than he does...he just comes along to carry stuff and load it in the truck. And be with me, of course.
Excellent job about this list!
