It is not limited to New England.
Back in the days when my wife and I were actually selling antiques,
I had a feeling the the majoriy of our sales were to other dealers.
We did not think much about home decorating, although furnishing our first
home with mostly Victorian (they were not considered antiques back then), got us interested.
We read about the shortage of new young collectors. but the young people
will be furnishing their homes.
We, in the Antiquing business compete with other home furnishing
items. I have not found many Antique dealer adv in Home Decorating magazines.
And a quote from
"The older people, from 50 on up, usually are going for the antiques ...
and the younger people, who are more or less starting their home,
are the ones who are looking for interior decorating,"
And a quote from
Leigh Keno, "In today's world, we mix modern and old and there's no such thing as a period room anymore."
And a quote from the Harwington Antique Show management+
"More and more, consumers and style-makers are looking to antique shows as a resource for trends in home design,"
said Jenkins. "We're moving away from the 'stuff in grandma's attic' image and toward offering a mix of hip, cool
and unique items with a range of price points and something for everyone. I think this is going to be the most
diverse show in New England."
