Trade secrets tip of the day

Not all of today’s gadgets will stand the test of time to become collectable in the future.  If you’re planning to buy a new household device it’s a good idea to consider something with designer appeal.  A limited edition is likely to be a wise investment.


Auction houses don’t just sell antiques and collectables for the interior of your house.  Some of them trade in garden statuary and furniture too.   Have a good look around the outside of the saleroom: what you thought was a picnic bench for the staff could be yours for a snip!
