The Cambridge antique shops can always be relied upon to find rarities, whether they are unearthed in family estates or brought in by owners keen to turn their goods into cash.
You'll find rare books, pieces of china, jewellery, bits of furniture - in fact, pretty much anything that continues to have a value beyond its years.
As well as Cambridge's antique shops, collectors can also rummage around at the Antiques, Curios and Collectables Fair held every third Saturday of the month at the Tamahere Community Hall, in Divine Road.
Cambridge Auctions, in Empire St, holds regular auctions of furniture, jewellery, collectable items and bric-a-brac.
