Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
Estate Sales - Another great place to find curio cabinets at a fraction of the cost that you would find them new is at estate sales. Estate sales are sales when all the items in a home are sold off. Usually it is because the person who lived in the home has died and their family has decided to liquidate all their belongings and split the money. While it may be a sad thing to think about it is a great time to do a little shopping for curio cabinets. Often furniture in this type of sale is in perfect condition and only being sold because the owner has passed away. Auctions - There are plenty of furniture auctions out there. From auctions for overstocked furniture from stores to the furniture that had been in homes and businesses that are being sold off there are plenty of great deals to be found. Antique Shops - If you are looking for curio cabinets that are a little older to suit the antique décor of your home you may want to start checking out antique shops in your area for pieces that will fit perfectly into your home.
We all remember going in to our grandmothers house and seeing all her knick knacks and finest china displayed in them. Today the style is still favorable and the appeal to displaying precious knick knacks and keepsakes in a glass and wood shelving unit still desirable. Where to Find Them? You can find this furnishing in various places. The internet is a great place to find websites that offer furniture and different selections of styles and pieces. You can always try looking at local estate auctions flea markets or garage sales if you are looking for an antique curio cabinet with beveled glass and maybe even ornate claw feet.
There are plenty of replica antiques curios to choose from that will have the same style as their ancestors but not carry the high price tag. Looking on well known furniture websites you should be able to find a huge selection of furniture pieces from classic contemporary traditional modern or even retro. The prices can vary greatly depending on the size quality and maker of the one you select. Quality should be very important as these pieces are usually carried down from generation to generation.
