You would be amazed to find out how many everyday items around you that you take for granted are extremely valuable. Some people have antiques all around them and they are not even aware of it. Old gold is a very true saying, and these days if you can get your hands on any decent antique, you should not hesitate to purchase it. Investing in antiques is very beneficial in the UK these days as vintage stuff still has value. You can invest in wide ranges of antiques including furniture, stamps, records, and cassettes. In this article, I have mentioned a few antiques in which you can invest in 2020.


Vintage Furniture

Old house décor is considered extremely valuable these days, and you would be surprised how much collectors love antique furniture. You can get vintage furniture from the market even online these days. The best part about buying vintage furniture is that you can use it as well because of the benefits it provides. An item of antique furniture with the right qualities will not only add a unique charm to your room but will last quite long as well. It is also eco-friendly and leaves a lower carbon footprint than modern furniture. An old table from the ’30s or ’40s will not only be more attractive but will be twice the price it was once and on top of that, it only gets more expensive with the time.


Vinyl Records

When the ’80s arrived and the technology took a new form, most of us did not hesitate to get rid of our vinyl records and players. But today vinyl records have become like gems and are valued at a very high price. Vinyl has gained popularity as an antique in the past few years and a lot of people have started to invest in it. A lot of artists have also started to release their albums in vinyl these days and they only release a limited number of those. Vinyl records keep changing hands in this modern world and every time it travels, it becomes more expensive. So it is a great option for you if you are thinking of investing.


Dining Sets

Dining sets are not just for dinner, but they are also valuable decorations in your home. It may sound unreal but it is also one of the most expensive things you can possess. Especially in old times, the family crockery was used rarely and it used to pass from generation to generation. Now those pieces of art still exist and they have a huge value in the market. Silverwares also have a great value and since they are hallmarked, it makes them even more expensive. You can tell easily when they were manufactured and where they were manufactured. It may not be as popular as other antiques but you can still sell it for a decent amount of money.


Vintage Comic Books

The characters from the comic books have made their way up to the bigger screen, and as of today, comic book movies are more popular than anything else. With the characters becoming if you have a comic book from an old-time, you can sell it for quite a lot of money. A mint-condition version of a comic from the 60’s batman detective series will be worth quite a lot these days. A great way of investing in these comics is by following the movies. They are consistently introducing characters from comic books and as soon as they receive popularity there, vintage comics become even more expensive. So, make sure that you do not miss out on this opportunity.

    I think you are talking rubbish with regards to antiques. I moved home some 2.5 years ago and sought expert advice with regards to a number of antiques including a set of 12 chairs, a chiffonier and various paintings. I was told that the market for “brown” furniture had collapsed and was advised to put the lot into storage until it recovered. I realized about 5% gross, 2.5% net of the original prices paid some 20+ years earlier.
