10 Tips for Buying Antiques

10 Tips for Buying Antiques, Memorize them and never present yourself as an amateur. When Buying Antiques, Always ask for discounts … No matter where you buy from. Many professional dealers will have a code marked somewhere on the item that you’re interested in and this will tell them exactly how low they can go. Something like X10 or X50 could mean they will discount up to that figure or go as low as that figure. Use your own judgment and always ask. Always, always ask about damage and/or restoration. If you don’t ask, they don’t need to tell you. Always, always, always handle the item — Get touchy feely … Pick it up, put it down, pick it up again. Look at the bottom, the top, the sides. Look from odd angles and use a magnifier to look close. Never be afraid to pick anything up in a shop, at an auction, on...

10 Etiquette Tips for Traveling on a Private Jet

10 Etiquette Tips for Traveling on a Private Jet. 1. When you’re on your way to the airport, update your crew personally or (via OnceOff) to ensure a timely departure. Your Captain will then liaise with Air Traffic Control to ensure a swift take off. 2. Request anything that you want that will make the trip more enjoyable for you. Treat private aviation like a concierge service – you are paying a premium to avoid an airline experience, so don’t compromise your enjoyment. If you want it, ask for it. 3. When choosing a seat, sit on the right hand (starboard) side of the aircraft, facing forward. The Captain always sits on the left (port) in the flight deck, so you’ll have a great view. 4. Help yourself to anything on-board. It is your aircraft so you should feel at home. If it’s in a drawer, it’s there for you to enjoy! 5. Wait until the...

What’s Driving China’s Emerging Luxury Home buyers in 2017? China’s wealthy home buyers are expressing high levels of consumer confidence when purchasing a place to live in their home country, according to a new report published by Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.
