If you live in Australia, you might be able to find some antiques for less than $1,000 online.
But antiques are becoming increasingly difficult to find online due to the increasing cost of raw materials and a shortage of skilled labour.
The Australian Museum in Adelaide is among those institutions that is facing a shortage.
In a bid to help alleviate the shortage, the Australian Antique & Collectibles Council has launched the online auctions and online sales portal Antiques.com, where you can bid for antiques and collectibles online.
You can bid online for up to $5,000, and also can bid at the Australian Museum, The Sydney Opera House and the Adelaide Museum.
There are four auctions a day.
Antiques.net offers an array of antiques, from antiques from famous Australian artists, to vintage antique furniture, and even some contemporary pieces from famous celebrities like Mark Wahlberg.
The auction house has a huge collection of Australian antiques.
“Antiques is a fantastic time of year for antique buying and selling,” said Antiques director of sales Matt Smith.
“We have lots of unique items that have been created by local people, like vintage furniture, from local businesses, and some of the more obscure pieces from the history of the world,” he said.
There’s a large collection of antique furniture in the Adelaide area, and many local businesses are also selling antiques to customers.
The museum has also been stocking antiques at their Antiques Gallery in Adelaide’s inner city, which sells up to 500 antiques a day and is a good place to look for antiquities you may not have seen before.
The Sydney Opera house is also stocking antique furniture, as are some shops around the city.
“It’s great to have a little bit of antique to put to good use in your home,” said Mr Smith.
The auctions and sales portal has been created in response to the growing demand for antigens, antiques that are produced by skilled craftspeople and are unique to each individual home.
“A lot of people are buying antiques because they don’t have the money to buy them locally, and we want to give them a chance to get the best deal on these amazing antiques,” he explained.
“If you’re looking for something you can’t find anywhere else, then you can just go and buy it online.”
Antiques online is a great way to have something special delivered to your door, and to buy antiques locally.
