"I stopped serving my cat's meals on a tatty Woolworth's plate when I opened Are You Rich? and read that it is worth GBP 12." - The Independent "A decade by decade look at what you might have lurking in the coal shed that could be dusted down to secure your future." - The Guardian"
From the Author
The ultimate guide for everyone who loves collectibles.
How many times have you ventured into an antique shop and seen something that rang a bell in your head... something that you know you've seen before... something very like the item you consigned to the dustbin just a few years ago? Quite frankly it's happened to most of us and that's why I've written `Are You Rich?' to tell you which modern collectibles are worth keeping and what items from today are worth seeking out for the future.
Believe it or not Dinky toys and Barbie dolls that we played with as children are now worth hundreds even thousands of pounds; Pyrex our mothers used and threw out as old fashioned is now very much back in vogue and remember those terrible Sixties chairs? They're the height of fashion now.
As the Antiques correspondent for The Daily Express & Ideal Home magazine as well as the antiques face on Sky TV, I receive hundreds of letters every week asking for advice on what's what. So for everyone out there who's dropped me a line in the past, this is the book for you.
It's an easy to use guide packed with over 300 colour illustrations as well as up to date prices for every item. From the bedroom to the kitchen, the living room to the study, the nursery to the dining room it covers everything that you'd expect to find in the average household from teasets to food mixers. I take you through the Festive Fifties, Swinging Sixties, Disco Seventies and Yuppie Eighties right up to my tips on future collectables from the Retro Nineties - all things you can buy now for yourself or as inspired gifts that are tipped to be antiques of the future.
No other book - not even the Miller's Price Guides - cover this untrodden ground. And no other guide covers this period so throughly. If it's modern collectibles you're after this is for you.
Happy reading and Happy Hunting - You could be sitting on a fortune!
