Being at home for an extended period of time can leave you searching for things you haven’t done yet. Maybe one of those things, way down on the list, was decluttering your home. Whether it be a garage, an attic or a storage shed/locker, part of the fun of rummaging through boxes that might have been untouched in years is coming across a family heirloom or an antique piece of furniture or a collectible that you didn’t know was a collectible. If you’ve had this experience and have now caught the antiquing bug, you are not alone. Here are a few antiquing/collectibles podcasts to check out.
