The old and the beautiful

SOME people believe that old things just creak, while others find beauty in the world of the antique.

The WA Business News list of antique-selling shops shows there’s no general interest in the purchase of clocks.

Collections of china and jewellery, to contrast, are particularly popular if they’ve an interesting past.

The Antique Importers of WA say they’re open for business on any day. Garside & Webb, on the other hand, prefers to leave its showroom unmanned. Best then to ring and arrange to come ’round if treasures attract you as a fox does a hound.

Unlike others of our lists, women play a great part in the selling of mirrors and objets d’art.

Most antiques have been made overseas, though little is from non-European countries.

So if you’ve got some spare cash and a mood to act haughty, buy the list of antique shops – we provide the top 40.
