Antique & Vintage Online Resources

Looking for more information about a specific collectible? You’ve come to the right place! I’m building an inventory of articles containing good, solid information and high quality images to help us all identify, value, and care for our precious antiques and collectibles.

I have personally read and selected each one for its quality and usefulness. In addition, I’ve taken the liberty of including articles I’ve written on various topics and will be adding to the list regularly. Enjoy!

  1. Wow, thanks so much for the great list. Hen-pecking for information sometimes is a pain, trying to get past all the ‘shopping’ sites. Thanks again…great collection of sources.

  2. Thanks a lot Diana. The info is very helpful for collectors of vintage antiques. There is so much in the list I wish to grab almost all of it. Vintage jewellery, ceramics and crockery are some of my favourite genres in vintage collectibles. Looking forward to more interesting reads.
