In a time when even gold loses its value, the one thing that doesn't is history. Bustamante Shows overflows with that.

In this time of recession, many are wondering how to safely invest their money. Banks are not as stable as they once were, stocks are unpredictable, and gold is not as reliable.

The answer lies in Bustamante Antique Shows and Book Fairs. Invest in history.

Historical artifacts, especially the ones with good providence, fetch premium prices at shows and auctions, and very rarely does the value diminish. Each day you possess a piece of history, it increases in value.

High-end antiques such as jewelry, art glass, furniture, porcelain and Greek amphoras are not only sound investments, but look absolutely gorgeous and enhances any home.

How can one be sure when choosing a vintage piece that it is what it is represented to be? In earlier times a look at a vintage piece would give you a fair idea of its’ age and value, however with the proliferation of counterfeits in the market today, one can’t be too sure. It is reassuring to know that Bustamante exhibitors must abide by a strict code of ethics, included in their signed contract, one of the highest in the antique industry. Customers can shop with confidence.

For over 39 years Bustamante has produced shows at the Pasadena Center and a majority of his dealers are 2nd and 3rd generation business owners. The next Bustamante Antique Show will be held at The Center June 7th , 8th and 9th , exhibiting many antiques of bygone times.
