No antique is as rare, old, or valuable as it seems-unless your neighbor owns it. 
- Murphy's first law of antiques

The best tag sales always have the least parking. 
- Shelly's Rule

"I collect antiques. Why? Because they're beautiful."
—Broderick Crawford

"My favourite finds are often antique pieces with a history."
-- Alice Temperley

"When you're visiting an antiques fair, turn left once you've passed through the entrance. Everyone else will turn right, which means you can get to the bargains before them."
-- Judith Miller

"I think the reason I love 'Antiques Roadshow' is that it is sort of like the lottery. There's the chance a regular Joe could walk in with anything and come out close to a millionaire. There's the thrill of the find."
-- Lara Spencer
