You might not have the title (or the staff) but you can certainly add a touch of golden-age Downton Abbey-style grandeur to your home. Antiques expert Fiona Shoop provides the tools and tips to profitably embrace elegance and style, travel the world and surround yourself with beautiful objects. Richly illustrated for the first time, best-selling antiques book How to Make Money from Antiques is now uniquely available as an eBook. Akin to having a portable personal expert with you wherever you go, the information deemed “astonishingly thorough” by the Antiques Trade Gazette is available on your mobile phone or eReading device.

Author Fiona Shoop is a leading antiques expert and The Lady antiques columnist. Utilising almost thirty years of experiences in the antiques trade, Fiona reveals insider tips and tricks gleaned from years of practice – from checking for hidden scratches, cracks, concealed lots and surprise fakeries to which words will get you a bigger discount…and, perhaps most importantly, how to spot that hidden bargain. This essential eBook even incorporates a special section detailing everything you need to succeed on eBay and other websites so you can make money in your own time.

This is a must-buy book for everyone interested in antiques, vintage and interior design. Full of must-know information for anyone buying and selling antiques and collectables as a hobby, a part-time job or even, with the help of this book, to turn your hobby into a full-time career and add a touch of grandeur to your home.
