The main dilemma facing the internet buyer is one of trust and confidence.

Here are some tips:

1. The antique shop should be long established, and the best ones are usually family run businesses.
2. They will have their reputation to protect, which was built up over many years.
3. The antique dealer will be an expert in his/her field and should be delighted to answer any of your questions.
4. All stock on offer should be wholly owned by the shop.

Buying genuine antiques for sale online can then become a real pleasure.
