Arriving December 1:
The ideal companion for any trip to the op shop, garage sale, boot sale, auction or flea market and essential reference before you buy on eBay or Gumtree

Collecting on a Shoestring is a brand new idea from us, Julie and Christine Carter (publishers of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit and The Carter Sisters Handbook & Price Guide to Antiques, Collectables, Vintage & Retro in Australia).

It's especially for the collector on a budget, because nothing in the book is priced at more than $200. And believe us, there's A LOT in the book!

We've taken more than 1800 antique, vintage and retro collectable items from antique and collectables dealers across Australia, and put them into sections so you can browse for collectables priced under $50, from $51 to $100, from $101 to $150, and from $151 to $200.

It means we can guarantee you'll be able to find something within your budget, because we don't think unique necessarily has to be expensive...

You'll be able to find all sorts of things in Collecting on a Shoestring, from a trilobite fossil that's 355 million years old (in the under $50 section!) and a novelty silver salt shaker ($51 to $100) to a pocket watch in its original box ($101 to $150) and a hand painted Clarice Cliff pot ($151 to $200).

And because this is a book designed for collectors on a budget, we've kept the price of it really low! Collecting on a Shoestring is just $24 including postage. But better than that... If you pre-order your copy before Tuesday October 31 EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 15, 2017 - you'll pay only $19* - and that still includes postage!

The books are scheduled to arrive in Australia on December 1 and will be mailed out immediately. So be a true bargain shopper - pre-order your copy today and save $5 straight away. We know you'll be able to find something in the book to spend it on...
