Caroline Atkins is a freelance writer and editor specializing in interiors. She writes for many magazines and is the author of Country Living Country Christmas.Review:
If you like car-boot sales, antique fairs or flea markets, you'll find this book invaluable. Written in association with "Country Living" magazine, it is an informative and knowledgeable guide to every sort of collectible to be found. China, basket-ware, textiles and glass are but a few looked at in depth: history, care, restoration and display or use. How to tell pottery apart from porcelain, detect a real Lloyd Loom chair or bakelite ashtray, where to find your local market and innovative ideas on how to use your finds in attractive ways. Packed with advice and many colour photographs, this is another practical "Country Living" guide, presented in a question and answer format for easy reference. - Lucy Watson
