ANTIQUES: National fair at Mall of Africa
Calling all collectors
Collecting trends are cyclical — what goes around comes around. And this is especially true in the world of antiques. Buying and selling of antiques ebb and flow with demand and availability, but a good buy will always hold its value. Furniture has been the cornerstone of antique collecting, and while classic 18th-and 19th-century furniture was the mainstay of the market, in recent years furniture from the 1920s and the Art Deco period have been in vogue. SA has a great tradition of antique collecting, and the National Antiques & Decorative Arts Faire has been at the heart of this.
