On behalf of the Wild Rose Antique Collectors Society in Edmonton, I would like to welcome you to our group of over 100 members who enjoy history, antiques, collecting and outings. We just have fun sharing history and stories about our beloved treasures.
We believe that antiques actually speak to our present era. If you look at fashion or design trends, it’s always the case that they do not feature something completely brand new.
Starting an antique collection is a good activity that offers the collector great personal enjoyment. Searching and finding treasures is what this group is all about. Treasures don't necessarily have a monetary value, it's what makes you happy. That being said, A true antique (Latin: antiquus; 'old', 'ancient') is an item perceived as having value because of its aesthetic or historical significance, and often defined as at least 100 years old (or some other limit), although the term is often used loosely to describe any object that is old. In Canada, most people perceive anything 50 years old to be antique. Our history is formed by heritage donations, contributing with projects, museums and charities throughout the province of Alberta.
Please feel free to visit one of our meetings. We have outings and fun events planned on a monthly basis. Here you can find our excellent recommendations for ANTIQUE SHOPS & SERVICES and ANTIQUE COLLECTORS.
