Searching for and purchasing fine antiques and collectibles can be your main hobby or business. Whatever it is, there are times when you come across a piece that you simply need to own. If you are shopping with a friend or family member who does not share your passion, the question they will ask is “Where will you put That?

The hobbyist collector may be dissuaded from purchasing the item when such a question is asked. The serious collector knows that a place can be found and calmly responds that way.

Change the setting

Changing the room or place of an object can bring out its beauty and uniqueness. For example; quilts have long been used practically in bedrooms. Instead of keeping all the quilts in your collection in the bedrooms, try scattering them around the house. Place quilts on the arm of a chair or the back of the sofa. Set aside a basket in the living area to show them where they can be enjoyed by visitors and take out to use them for extra warmth on family movie marathon night.

Porcelain cups and plates of candy should not be confined to areas of the house where there is food. Place the porcelain cups on the tables in the living area, in the bathroom decorated with small flowers where they also act as a vase. Avoid using live flowers as water may stain the porcelain of the cup.

Place one of your two favorite dolls on a chair in a hallway or living room. If you have several dolls, try arranging the dolls around a child-friendly table and display that miniature tea set you won at auction!

Guidelines for displaying your collectibles

1. Place fragile materials away from high traffic areas, use shelves that are not easily accessible but easily visible.

2. Put several similar objects together for greater impact. Usually three elements make a nice display.

3. Place delicate fabrics, photos and paper items, including books, away from sunlight, heat and humidity. Avoid touching such objects as the oils from our skin are transferred onto these types of objects.

4. Investigate any object before cleaning it. Poor cleaning with improper cleaners cannot be undone and will greatly devalue the piece.

Enjoy your collections

Remember the emotion when you bought an item. Most of us buy because an object is pleasing to the eye, reminds us of an earlier period in our life, or maybe the piece is similar to what we once had and we buy our past by buying the piece.

Whatever the reason for your purchase, enjoy it. Display your pieces securely so you can see and enjoy them every day. For example, China has the practical use of holding our food while we eat. The porcelain we bought is probably not dishwasher safe and microwave safe. Hand painting and fine antique porcelain need to be hand washed. Embrace your collections and enjoy the full experience of them, even if it means washing and drying your hands.

Most importantly, display your pieces where you can easily use and enjoy them.
