Welcome to NYPA-Collector
The Collector was founded in Rochester, NY and has served those with an interest in arts and antiques in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New England and beyond for more than three decades.
Our goal is to continue to serve collectors, dealers, auctioneers and show organizers to advance the hobby of collecting and the knowledge of history and antiques. At the same time, we hope to introduce antiques to a wider audience that may find owning a few antiques as décor is a great way to make a connection to the past.
In many ways antiques collectors are preservationists and historic researchers, even if that isn’t their goal. We think that’s a good thing!
Please visit our new website often as we add features.
They all have an interest in history and antiques. Each month they follow the antiques beat, attending auctions, shows, galleries, museums and much more.
Take a picture, write down sizes and other information that might not be evident in the photo, then send it to our “What Is It?” column at email@example.com.
