The guide is a developing listing of general suppliers of antiques and collectables in Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Powys and beyond; it now including auctions and in the future specialist heritage related attractions. Over 23 years it has become an essential resource for anyone with an interest in buying and selling antiques and collectables in West Wales and Beyond.

Wales Antiques Guide 2009

I am readying the 2009 Wales Antiques Guide for publication next month. Always a tricky time it has been more so this year because a: I’ve usually got this far by Christmas and b: there’s a reported economic crisis and c: I’m stuffed to the gills with web work.

No complaints about the latter, and only myself to blame for the former. But the middle one; dealers and auctioneeers and I suppose collectors are a mixed up people. Often pessimistic and downbeat, show them a a sale listing and they are there brimming with hope and optimism.

Every cardboard box, every lumber room, every car boot pitch, a chance to turn a profit or maybe even find the ‘big one’.

Take last week; one sale, not much there, a lot of modern bankrupt stock, mainly fixtures and fittings. But for one dealer keen enough to look in a box of junk, £40 bought a £500 gold chain.

Keep looking, keep smiling!
