The old saying, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure” often rings true when it comes to antiques.

What makes an old relic disposal to some is a keepsake for others, whether it’s an old household item or artifact.

But we wanted to know: What makes antiques so appealing?

Duke Snyder, owner of Duke’s Antiques in Lexington, shed some of his expertise on the matter.


Why are antiques in high demand?

Snyder said that antiques are often generational items passed on from parents to kids.

One perk of antiques is that they can be more durable, since they were built in a time period in which products were made to last longer.
