Christine Pym's "A Beginner's Guide to Becoming an Antiques Dealer: Antiques for Everyone"

Although the industry is about antiques, the entry age for involvement does not have to be antique!

The subject of antiques is so diverse that it has no beginning and no end. It can stretch one's expertise, knowledge, and entrepreneurship in every way, which is why the business so often appeals to retired professionals with a proven track record. Antiques offer a fascinating and magical allure, as well as a look back in time. The business attracts creative, sometimes larger-than-life colourful characters.

Rules and regulations have emerged to help provide fair trading and credibility in this industry that sets it apart from any other retail business. Having been involved with the high-end antiques industry for 25 years, starting as a hobby and working through all the stages, including owning and co-directing two professional businesses, author Christine Pym thought it would be interesting to analyse and share the process for others.
