For the love of keeping antique furniture, lamps and clocks as a hobby and investment can one makes a lot of money. I had a brother who keeps every things that he thinks can makes money in future. He started to collect all junks and antique items when he start works in a heritage shops. He started to collect old clock and repair it to make it works. With a little touch up and polish the anti clock is put up for sales. If he news any people who wanted to parts their old items, he will be there.
Today he owes three shops selling all junks and antique items. I remember one old father clock which he brought for a few hundred from his friends who is moving oversea. He sold to a family for ten thousand with a little touch up. Today's if you are an antique collectors you are consider a very rich person as antique are very expensive items nowadays.
