Household collectibles can come in many forms such as vases, jugs mugs, teapots etc.
Due to the diversity of household items that are available for collectors, this type of collecting is very popular. It is easy to build a large collection before opting to collect specific types of household collectibles.
Generally household collectibles can be found in bric-a-brac shops, on car boot sales and collectors fairs, as well as in antique shops and at antique fairs.
Collectors can be of all ages and you are never too young or old to start a collection.
Collectors can come from varying backgrounds but they will all have an interest in the design or decoration of the item. Many are no longer in use today which can add to the appeal.
Household collectibles can include, but is not limited to the following items. Appliances, candles, coasters, china, porcelain and pottery, figurines, glass and crystal, key-rings, music boxes, kitchen collectibles such as housewares and teapots, perfume bottles, plants, refrigerator magnets and sterling silver. This gives the collector of household items great scope and there is a plethora of available treasure.
Household related collectibles is an unusual and surprisingly large subject. The sheer number of early patented products was phenomenal. There were many labour-saving devices invented for use in the kitchen, yet many of these were of little practical use. It was the short production runs of many of these items that has reduced availability to collectors and prices are beginning to reflect this. As the area available to collectors is wide, some type of specialisation may be needed.
Depends greatly on the item in question. Some items may be bought for a few pence, others may cost maybe hundred of pounds. A good general collection could be put together for very little money. A more specialised collect for considerably more.
