This category is for dealers specializing in antique and collectible items. This includes both items of considerable age and brand new items which are produced for the primary purpose of collecting. New items whose primary purpose is something other than being collected are listed in other topical areas of the Shopping branch, unless there is a separate collectible market for the items. Also included in this category are sites which sell services or supplies to the collecting community. Please see Recreation: Antiques and Recreation: Collecting for informational sites about these subjects. The alphabar at the top of this category contains links to many sub-categories about collectible items. Please note that sites are not listed at the top level of this category. Sites selling a variety of antique or collectible items can be found in the Varied Merchandise subcategory.
