Let’s face it, we collect antiques because they’re fun. We love the mystery of nostalgia and the lure of the old days, brings a smile to our faces and makes our heart jump at least a little bit.
Here are five antiques that can make you happy. All lots shown can be found on the online auction site www.Boocoo.com
1960s Rockola Jukebox. I figured we’d start off strong. If this doesn’t do it for you, check your pulse! It may not be for everyone, but can’t you just hear Buddy Holly and the Beatles calling you over?
More Cowbell. I think it’s impossible to hear the cowbell and be in a bad mood. These make great additions to the main entry in country homes too.
Antique Victorian Ladies Boots. These are so authentic that the mere act of looking at them can transport you back to the days of Charles Dickens.
Why should this set make you happy Because if you’ve ever priced these new, you know that the starting bid of $22 is ridiculously low. These are very useful around the farm and home and these are in great shape. I remember the day, it wasn’t that long ago, when one of these would have sold for more than $22 on the auction block.
Cat’s head chalkware plaque: Isn’t it obvious why this is on the list?
