Antique Shopping for Your Nest Egg

A new book posits antiquing is the key to saving for your golden years.

Is antique collecting the key to saving for your golden years? Avid antiquarian Arthur T. Vanderbilt II thinks so. In The Soul of a House: Adventures in Building an Antique Retirement Account, Vanderbilt asserts that choosing carefully researched, centuries-old items that will grow in value over time is a savvy way to enjoy monetary gains down the road. “A home filled with antiques, selected one by one, over years, over decades, each a special piece whose beauty, whose history speaks directly to you, can bring a lifetime of enjoyment and satisfaction,” writes Vanderbilt. Start curating your own collection at the Morristown Armory Antiques Show, October 28–29.
