Carter's Price Guide to Antiques

Carter's Price Guides to Antiques and Collectables
The Library now subscribes to Carter's Price Guide to Antiques. Formally available in hard copy, the 2011 edition is now published online only. It contains over 85000 items dating from 1500BC to the present.

Remember that McDonalds Snoopy toy you got when you were a Kid?
Well, now you can find out how much it's worth using this fascinating database. Each item entry includes a professional photograph, an expert's description and the current price range for similar items. You can search the database by category, keyword or dealer and refine the search by manufacturer, date of manufacture, size, shape etc. You can also view an alphabetical index of all items. Once you find the item you're looking for, you can email the record to yourself or share it via social networking sites such as Facebook.

So have a look around this great site and take a trip down memory lane. Even if you don't own antiques, you'll love the wide range of vintage products including barbie dolls, jewellery, furntiure, Star Wars figurines, stamps, coins and ancient antiquities.

You can access this database from any Sutherland Shire Library PC (excluding Bundeena).
