Hi! My name is Pamela Winters. I love shopping for antiques and, in particular, antique furniture. I wanted to write about my passion in the hope that you might find some interesting information. I’m going to share some antique shopping tips that I've learned over the years. Sometimes I really want to buy something but have to refrain due to the quality or condition. I also want to talk about caring for antique furniture. I’m very careful when it comes to cleaning or polishing my furniture. Antiques can be fragile and should be treated as such. I've found some gentle ways to care for my antiques. I have some antique furniture that is for show and not use. I also have antique furniture that is sturdy and perfectly suitable for daily use. Usable or not, I love my antiques.
