A Beginner's Guide to Becoming an Antiques Dealer

Antiques maintain a fascinating and magical allure. The business attracts creative, sometimes larger-than-life colourful characters. And although the boom years of the 1990s have passed, most rogues and fly-by-night dealers have fallen by the wayside. It is imperative today that a professional air is exercised to make a living. Even though involvement in the industry may be as small or large as one likes - a part-time hobbyist, collector, enthusiast, or professional dealer - various rules and regulations have emerged to help provide fair trading and credibility in this industry that sets it apart from any other retail business. The subject is so diverse that it has no beginning and no end. It can stretch one's expertise, knowledge, and entrepreneurship in every direction, which is why it so often appeals to retired professionals and ex-business people with a proven track record. Having been involved with the high-end antiques industry for 25 years, starting as a hobby and working through all the various stages, including owning/co-directing two professional businesses, the author thought it would be interesting to look back and analyse the process for others. A Beginner's Guide to Becoming an Antiques Dealer describes in concise, easy-to-read, fun terms a beginner's entry point. Most everyone will someday inherit antique or collector's items, and popular television series show the vast interest in the topic. Isn't it time you learned from the professionals? About the Author Author Christine Pym of Newbury, West Berkshire, says, "Although the industry is about antiques, the entry age for involvement does not have to be antique!"
