Hunting for antiques is always fun, especially if that ‘special bargain’ buy can be found. Although this pastime is followed by more and more people with more knowledge, it is still possible to discover some real finds.

Yardsales can still be a good hunting ground, as you never know what might be on offer. The saying ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ still holds good. Look for flyers around the village, or in the local stores.
