    There are a few events that are commonly traveled to in the antiquities markets, the most noteable is Brimfield Ma. This event is known for drawing professionals who tend to buy up the best items before the daily trading opens. It is knowledge such as this that inspired and makes practical the idea of paid expeditionary travel agents like myself. In most cases, the travel expenses may be enough to procure my services, especially if I have the opportunity to have with my at all times my own transportation. I drive a full size Chevy Tahoe, with towing package so that a trailer and a side crane for lifting bank safes, pot belly stoves and other collectables that are heavy with one person is possible. In some cases, I have come back with items offered to me for free, as long as I could get them down or up from where the had landed.
    I have a relative who is a bottle collector and is aquainted with the big bottle shows. In the midwest, traveling to Minneapolis should be expected once a year if this is your hobby. Most of the Wisconsin auto shows are in very rural areas and require camping as with Brimfield, Ma. The Harley epositions are more mid-state and year round, with good food and spirits. Strangely they also tend to attract the summer crowd, probably because people are creatures of habit. Habits and pre-conceived but outdated notions are perhaps the best and most common reason that it pays to plan ahead or make use of someone who is more than a travel agent. Travel agents today amount to nothing more than a bookie for gamblers. All the internet capability has only made the problem worse. Travel information has always come at a premium and some risks of outdatedness.

    Carvings and paintings are the main collectables that have appreciation value as they have been seen as 'fine art' in the traditional markets. However, this idea too may become outdated. For most transactions, fine arts only refers to the goods that the large auction houses in New York are willing to put their label on. And, even in Chicago and midwest cities, that generally means that if it will not obviously bring a bid of $2000, then they will not attempt to sell it. So, for those who want to be expeditionary painting travelers, I would only take on those jobs where a very large size painting is being sought. The space that a large painting goes into should already be determined to make practical this kind of travel.

    I only procure non-oriental ceramics for similar reasons. The very large carvings are worth some money, especially of they have functional value, such as table or chairs or archways and entryways and constrution materials. There is always a suddenly reborn collector for such items. With the small items, like bottle collection, it is often the history or else the story behind the item that holds the actual value. Scarcity is then factored into the equation. While that make a great negotiation experience, it does not make a very good travel experience unless you are the type of person who enjoys making the trade itself more than the thrill of the find or the high fashion and social exposure of the chase. I could add more details about how to generate and ecourage your own passions about small and medium sized objects, but I have already covered the basics, and with personal passions, sometimes the less said about them, the better. Traveling to find a good doctor or cures is another good idea, especially for treatments that can be put off.

    One Other Event Worth Considering as Expeditionary Travel for Purchases: Glass / Ceramics : Gold Rush Days The fair grounds indoor / outdoor show in Rochester, MN and nearby Oronoco Aug 17-19 2012 Also Worth Considering as Expeditionary Travel for Medical Surgery or recovery Excercise (common over 40 shoulder condition): Manitowoc, Wisconsin. I can host rotator cuff surgery patients for one of the top 5 shoulder surgeons in the USA.

    A listing of glass and ceramic bottle shows in Nevada, Yearly trip to england and others will be posted here soon. While I personally collect 1960's music equipment, such merchandise is perhaps at it's all time peak values, especially hollow body guitar brand name instruments and Japanese made names. Most trading is among dealers as with glass/cermics.

    However, it is nearly impossible to find individual collectors who do not buy through dealers, so I can supply such equipment for studio work as rentals or purchase of working goods, but discourage the investment in guitars for appreciation of value. There is an active concertina and accordian group locally. The valueable instruments are button accordians, not piano accordians. This may be an area that I could locate and procure vintage made brand names at reasonable prices in good condition.
