Below is an article that I read in Saturday’s National Post. It is something that I have been advising clients, that tastes have and will change constantly. Our children and grandchildren no longer want the things we have collected except for fine art and classic cars which have actually escalated in value. The hardest hit being china, glassware, and antique wooden furniture — known as brown furniture, have all suffered severe price drops and is now easily available at a fraction of its original price. There is now only a smaller group who collect for the love of vintage. It is often the green upcycler, the frugal, and the stylish, looking for something solid, unique, and in keeping with the times, purchase an item to re-imagine, upcycle or paint into something modern looking like the current fave, Scandi.
