When you dive into the world of buying and selling, you will find yourself searching for reference books to help identify what you have and help put a price on it. There are plenty out there, and there’s a book that covers just about every aspect of anything vintage.
When I first started to buy and sell antiques, “Schroder’s Antiques Price Guide” and “Kovel’s Antiques And Collectibles Price List” always seemed to be brought along when I headed out to an auction. Another book that I never leave with is “A Guide Book of United States Coins” (also known as “The Red Book”) whenever I head out to coin shows.
What reference books do you find yourself constantly reading?
Is it “The Collector’s Encyclopedia Of Fiesta” by Bob And Sharon Huxford or “McCoy Pottery” by Bob And Sharon Huxford? Do you read “Collectible Glassware from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s” by Gene Florence if you love glass?
What are some of your favorite titles?
