Where to Find
Antiques and Collectibles
Whether you are collecting something just because this is your passion, and you are really into it or you are trying to make money by collecting and selling your rare findings sooner or later you will have to ask several questions. How do I get valuable collectibles? Where to look for them?
Depending on what exactly you are collecting there are various sources of enlarging your existing collection. These days collecting statues and figures is a very popular trend. Of course, you can search for them online at well-known resources, namely eBay, Invaluable, and Finest Known. And often it is more convenient and even cheaper, because when buying you can use coupons that can be found here. But the real hidden gems wait for you in various gift shops scattered all over the world. When I travel I always on the lookout for unique items that I can add to my collection. Visiting Arizona I found these amazing handmade figurines carved by hand. These figurines have distinctive Native American traces and reflect the unique culture which has all the chances to become extinct. I have bought several of these figurines and they have become valuable additions to my collection.
Also travelling inspires me to start collecting something new. Fine collectible items are much more expensive, but they can make a good investment and are sure to only increase in value over time. I was really amazed by these remarkable pieces of jewelry showcased at this window display.
These are all jewelry designs Native American women wore in the past. They are replicas of those authentic necklaces, earrings and rings worn by Navajo, Hopi or Zuni tribes. The quality of the jewelry pieces is stunning and with the great popularity of ethnic motifs and designs they will also become something you could wear, not just collect.
Stone and ceramic figurines are also notable and deserve to be mentioned. They are an important part of the region's culture and will add diversity and uniqueness to any collection.
They will also make a perfect one-of-the-kind gift for those who appreciate pieces of art.
I fell in love with these luxury vases with unique design. They are made using modern materials but stylistically are very close to authentic Arizona pottery and art. Embellished with golden decorative elements and featuring geometric shapes and laconic design these vases make a great luxury gift and can start the whole new collection of original and exclusive home decoration items. Imagine how chic they will look at home on a mantelpiece or on the shelf. They are sure to become an interesting décor accent in any interior.
Even the earth colors and cactus design on the vases are all about Arizona heritage that local artisans celebrate through their timeless masterpieces.
