There's some fantastic summer reading for you in the Summer 2014/15 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit!
We go deep into the Clarice Cliff market to see if her work is still collectable, and look at 10 common mistakes home decorators make that can easily be avoided. We tell you What's Hot and What's Not, and we take you on a tour of the oldest house in Scotland (it's got a right royal history).
There's a feature on swap cards and one of our readers has provided a really interesting behind-the-scenes view of vintage sign restoration. There's a stunning editorial on the power of the ring, and dealer Debra Palmen gives a peek at what happens when she’s standing at a collectables fair.
We take a look at British folk art and provide an in-depth view of Australian mid-century modern, as well as telling the amazing tale of the barbershop and the discovery of Wedgwood Jasperware.
You'll love the feature on French fashion illustrations, and just to keep it a bit festive we've delved into the history of the Christmas bauble and the Christmas cracker.
Plus there's even more... Including a 4 month calendar of antique fairs and events, Bargain Hunter, Snippets and 4 pages of readers' letters in What's it Worth. It's a great magazine and it's packed with literally hundreds and hundreds of items to buy.
