Buying Slightly Damaged Antiques

If you watch the Antiques Road Show, etc. on TV you will see that things with some slight damage go way down in value, so you might be able to acquire a slightly used version of something you would like at a price range you could afford and then fix it up. Trust me, very few people will know the difference.

Thats true, about one mo. ago I purchased a
Murphy #23 (?) Cedar Chest, Flat Lid, Wood Casters.
Needs Sanding, Varnish, & 2 new Hinges, for holding up thr Lid. No Tray or shelf though.
I paid $25.00 for it.
