Antiques have high demand in the society on account of their uniqueness. People often collect antique items because of their scarcity, quality or their age and popularity. The price of an antique is determined by its demand in the market place. The antique items are usually bought from antique shops or dealers in the business. Many valuable antiques are auctioned and can be obtained that way also. Collectables, on the other hand, need not be historic items. They are specifically made for people interested in collecting them. Some items which were popular among people were manufactured and marketed as collectibles. Examples of collectibles include record albums, dolls, sports cards etc.
