4 Benefits of Buying Antiques

4 Benefits of Buying Antiques

In the age of disposable clothing, decor, and furniture...let's talk about the benefits of shopping for timeless antiques instead.

1. Invest in Quality Materials and Craftsmanship

The craftsmanship of antique items is difficult and often impossible to replicate by current-day mass production. From the material used to the craftsman who handcrafted the item, the quality is made to last for generations. Newer is not always better, especially when it comes to antiques!

2. Add History to Your Space

You do not have to be a historian to appreciate a good story. Every antique has a fascinating story to tell and wants to continue to be retold. Make your antiques a conversation piece in your home and be sure to search for the story behind your new-to-you antique item.

3.  Antiques Can Continue to Increase in Value

The antique market exists apart from the current retail market. Antiques are not influenced by the same inflation and fluctuation in value as the retail market. Antique items hold on to their value regardless of the state of the economy and will often rise in value over time. Some of the factors that affect value include the rarity of the item, quality of craftsmanship, brand name, and even sentimentality.

4. The Environment Will Thank You

You’ve heard of fast fashion…but you most likely haven’t thought about fast furniture. In a 2018 study by the Environmental Protection Agency, over 12 million tons of furniture ended up in United States landfills. Most of the materials used to make modern-day furniture aren’t recyclable or biodegradable making furniture one of the least recycled items. Not only will you find higher-quality antique options, but you will also increase the lifespan of that furniture while keeping it out of the landfill.

You don’t have to search far and wide for beautifully crafted antique items and furniture. Baron Mushmouse located at 141 S Santa Fe Ave in Salina currently has quality imported pieces from France, Germany, and Belgium.
