Welcome to Sarasota Antique Buyers, Clearwater’s number one collector and dealer of historical works. It is quite often that many homeowners around the bay area find themselves possessing old items they no longer need, or want to sell. Why is this so common in the bay area?
Well, it just so happens that while much of Florida’s history is not as long as in the northeast United States, and far younger than much of the rest of the world, it happens to be where many old artistic works have found their way down from the north. And now that they are here, they’ve each gained a little more to their stories by finding their way into your possession.
Many people who decide to sell antiques have had the items in their family for generations, while others may have recently inherited in an estate, while others have been locked away in the attic for years and years. Regardless of the circumstances by which you acquired these antiques, Sarasota Antique Buyers is always looking to buy. We are more that happy to come and visit you, as we do house calls. See further down for just some of the items that interest us!
