To me, it’s a two-pronged thing: antiques you inherit (one way or another), and antiques you purchase.
I love antiques you inherit. I love the history, I love the weather’ing that time inherently gives them. Even though I’m more of a modern/minimalist mindset type of woman…I can still appreciate a good antique living on through the family., down through the ages.
I just though, for the life of me, can’t understand buying antiques. You generally don’t know the history. You spend good money for furniture that is already knicked and scratched. I don’t know, just for me, if I’m going to spend money on furniture, I want it new and pristine.
I’m POSITIVE I’m in the minority though. Convince me otherwise. Show me the way. 🙂
