Verde Antiques and Rare Books

     Our concentration is on antiques, collectibles, collectible and rare books, and ephemera. The specific categories are shown on this page.  Our Inventory includes over 2,000 items that are catalogued and will be made available for your viewing and purchase starting with several hundred pieces, and escalating in time to include the total.  While we are adding items, please use the categories on the left to browse items of general interest.  If you are looking for a more specific item, please use the search feature.  If you do not find what you are looking for, please call (1-609-597-5233 or 609-548-1516) or "contact us" so that we may check our inventory not yet listed here.

Antiques & Collectibles

     Those of you who are “old hands” at collecting and selling know that there is a great deal of overlap between antiques and collectibles. Usually, the only difference is the age of the item(s) so that most of the categories listed will have both antiques and collectibles within them.

Vintage and Rare Books

     Our display and storage areas have made us eschew buying and selling books whose primary use is for reading purposes. Our inventory includes very good to fine condition First Editions as well as early rarities. We also frequently purchase to satisfy current customers’ known interests. If you have questions, please contact us.

Appraisal Services

     We can provide appraisals for insurance, donations, estate distribution or other purposes unique to the client. Our advantage is that Ray is a generalist who can appraise most items and thereby limit the number of specialist appraisers necessary to handle a broad inventory estate. He also has relationships with specialists if detailed expertise is required.

For more information please call us at 1 609-597-5233 or email us at: ray@verdeantiquesandrarebooks.com

Ray's Column

     Local newspapers have given us nearly unlimited space to help educate readers regarding the methods by which they can understand the vagaries of the buying and selling process in ways that can allow “equal footing” when interacting with dealers and auction houses. Each column tries to give tips for varying types of material.
     The idea for Ray’s columns was the result of questions that customers have repetitively asked. At one of our local “roadshows” that we did, a member of the audience suggested that the presentation was so interesting and useful that we should consider sharing the information and insight with others. To date, there have been many columns written by Ray and published in local newspapers.
     The purpose has been to help ordinary people who want to buy and sell items understand various ABCs and their values. Please click on any or all of the columns and we hope they can make you a more knowledgeable buyer and/or seller.
     All columns are copyrighted and may not be reproduced for other than a single reading without written permission.
