It’s nice, not necessary, but nice to have a few goals when you set out to go antiquing. It helps you stay focused and makes the trip more enjoyable as you set out to go vintage shopping.

Bargain Shopping For instance, I have a vintage booth that I would like to restock for spring. Therefore, I will be looking for vintage pieces that are marked way down that I can resell.

So, the first stop on my way to Maine is always the Savers store in Portsmouth, NH, where I look for items that I can resell at bargain pricing.

Negotiating for the price you want It’s always okay to ask for a lower price. Did you know that antique dealers expect customers to ask for at least 10% off, and that is standard in the industry?

Antiquing can be a fun and exciting way to explore different regions, discover hidden treasures, and add unique pieces to your home collections.  Join me on the blog for a complete guide to antiquing!
