By Jesse Logan Houk Antiquing is an art form for many people that like to design their homes, businesses or places of leisure with pieces of history. That is, after all, what an antique is, a piece of history, telling a story about the time it came from for others to see. Antiques can be found all over the world, but Kentucky really has some interesting antiques to be uncovered. Here are the 10 best stores to find these classic items in the state!
The best way to store antiques is in a clean, dry, water-tight and protected space that does not allow in any pests, and is temperature and humidity-controlled. Furniture should be well cleaned beforehand and stored free-standing, not stacked. Mirrors should be bubble-wrapped. Art, books, and documents should also be wrapped in special paper and placed within protective boxes. Rugs should be rolled and wrapped in plastic.
