I Antique On Blogs

How To Find Antique Blogs

Sometimes I will go out antiquing on a weekend and come home empty handed. These are the days when I return to my home office bummed out. My engines are still running with a desire to keep on hunting for more STUFF, but now the shops are all closed. But there is a great solution. I Antique on blogs.

Satisfying Your Antique Cravings

I can fill my antiquing crave by poking around on line. A really good blog about antiques and collectibles will keep me satisfied. In fact, many dealers have created blogs to supplement their online shops.

Visiting Antique Blogs You Will Enjoy


So you might ask, how do I find the blogs that are worth visiting? Here is what I do. I go to Google images and type in a certain type of collectible. Let's say "Zippy The Monkey". Than I look for really good photographs of "Zippy The Monkey" on Google images. Or perhaps, I am after "vintage Pyrex bowls". I click on a few different images that interest me and sooner or later I land on a great blog.

Blog and Shop On Antiques

And when you discover a photo that you enjoy on Google images, usually that photo leads you back to a blogger who has other things you will like as well as as a shop that goes with the blog.

You see, when you blog regularly and post wonderful images, Google finds you and your images will be showcased on Google Images. I have found a lot of great blogs this way.
