I don't really collected antique stuff in particular, but I do have one small wall clock that been passed to me for some generations. It didn't work proper anymore, though. But both my dad and my father inlaw collect almost anything... they still have antique stuff from the world war time. And amazingly, those antique still works.

We don't really collect antiques, but we still ended up owning some. I have a "book stand" from the 1920's that my dad gave me. It is like a set of bookends, but the ends are connected by two adjustable metal bars so it can hold a varied number of books. Each end has a art deco profile of two women with long flowing hair. We also have a restored icebox, although we just store our CDs and DVDs in it now, though it technicall would work if we filled it with ice..

When I worked in an eclectic shop that happened to be next to a store that did sell some antiques, sometimes people would come into "my" store and ask if we had any antiques. (We didn't.) I would answer "Only me!" It is my understanding that something has to be 50+ years old to be an antique, therefore I qualify. As for anything in my home, I have my parents' bedroom set, so I guess there's that. And a tea set my mom got at her bridal shower... But as far as anything really old or really valuable, I'd have to say "No."

I do have a habit of collecting antique coins and stamps whenever I go holidaying abroad.. And the latest addition to my coin collection has been a coin from the Roman empire...

damn, thats sweet. Do you know from what time period, ive been curious to find evidence that the romans drastically lowered the amount of valuable metals in their coins prior to the fall of the roman empire. From what i know of, the roman empire cheated with their coins by drastically lowering the amount of gold and silver in them, as a way of making more money. Prior to the fall of their empire, ive heard that their silver coins had an amount of only around 4% pure silver, making the coin lose value amongst those who traded with the romans, speeding up the fall of the empire.
