Guide to collecting Harry Potter books!

The Harry Potter series only began in 1997 and yet J.K. Rowling's books have become highly collectable. It usually takes decades for a book to become collectable and gain significant value on the rare book market. The AbeBooks online marketplaces has sold hundreds of copies of Rowling's books at high prices, including a first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone that sold for £26,700. Do you have a valuable Harry Potter gathering dust under your bed?

Demand for collectable Harry Potters has not decreased even though the last book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was published in 2007. The movies, Rowling's high profile, and her non-Potter novels (The Casual VacancyThe Cuckoo's CallingThe Silkworm, and Career of Evil) have kept interest alive.

One simple guideline to collecting Potter books: anything signed by JK Rowling has significant financial value. A book signed by one of the illustrators is much less valuable.

Hardcover first edition first printings of this 1997 book have become the 'Holy Grail' for Potter collectors. If you find one in the attic, then you've hit the jackpot. Only 500 were published and 300 went to libraries. The main characteristics of a 1997 first edition first printing are a print line that reads "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1" and the crediting of "Joanne Rowling" not J.K. Prices on AbeBooks vary from £28,850 to £39,700. A handful of advance proof copies are available from £5,400 to £9,700. Prices for Australian first editions vary between £145 and £1,445. The first editions of the deluxe edition from 1999 are also desirable with prices from £320 to £1,800. Paperback first editions of the Philosopher's Stone are also quite scarce and attract four-figure price-tags - sometimes five figures if in excellent condition.

Published in 1998, the US version of the Philosopher's Stone was re-titled. Prices for first edition first printings go up to around £4,700 with a fair selection between £2,885 and £3,600 - many signed by the author - although cheaper copies can be found. US first editions will have the number line of "1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 8 9/9 0/0 01 02," on the copyright page along with "Printed in the U.S.A.23" and "First American edition, October 1998". Prices for later editions in good condition are three figures.

Published in 1998, prices for hardcover first edition first printings go up to £6,500. In 1998, J.K. Rowling was still a jobbing author rather than a worldwide superstar richer than the Queen, so there are a reasonable number of signed first editions available from her book tour signings. Deluxe editions can be priced in four figures if signed. Scholastic's American first editions are generally priced in three figures but look out for signed copies. First Australian editions are available from £215 to £430 but Canadian firsts are cheaply priced.

The initial hardcover print run was stopped mid-printing after it was discovered that 'Joanne Rowling' rather than 'J.K. Rowling' had been printed on the copyright page. Joanne versions are available for prices starting at around £1,080 and go up to £8,650 for signed pristine copies. First edition first printings will have the number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1" and a block of misaligned text on page seven. Opinions about the number of copies printed before the errors were spotted vary greatly - however, it seems that only a small number came off the press which greatly enhances its value. The deluxe editions, with green cloth, of 1999 are also collectable if they are a first edition (prices go up to £3,600). However, second printings can be picked up for three figures. Look out for Canadian first editions, published by Raincoast, for between £75 and £215. First American editions vary from £110 to £500 for a signed copy.

J.K.'s signature (by book 4, she was signing fewer copies) turns any first edition of Goblet of Fire into a book with a four-figure price-tag but there are a handful of copies over £7,200. Look out for the limited editions with original watercolour illustrations by Giles Greenfield (Bloomsbury's UK edition) and Mary GrandPré (Scholastic's super rare US edition of only 25 copies). If either illustrator has signed a copy, then prices are again in four-figures. Many buyers are also looking for books accompanied by items such as entrance wristbands or golden tickets from events where J.K. Rowling has conducted a signing. After the Goblet of Fire, these signing events have become increasingly scarce.

Look out for first edition copies signed by JK Rowling at the midnight launch event in Edinburgh on 2003 that are going to be priced in four figures. Jason Cockroft illustrated the UK edition while Mary GrandPré illustrated the US version – their signatures enhance a book’s value but such copies can be found for as little as £145.

Published in July 2005 to widespread Pottermania, J.K.'s days of book tours were long gone so very few signed copies are on the market. A handful are available for prices up to £3,600. Copies signed by illustrator Mary GrandPré can be found for £180 or less. Deluxe first edition first printings can be picked up cheaply.

Millions and millions of copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been published. J.K. Rowling launched the book at London's Natural History Museum in 2007. She signed copies of the book that night for 1,700 people who won exclusive tickets to the event. Those 1,700 copies have considerable value now. Prices for signed copies usually start around £720. The most expensive signed Hallows to sell via AbeBooks went for £4,000.

Styling with Antiques, Top Tips!


Styling with Antiques, Top Tips!

Posted November 1st, 2020 by Eve Oliver and filed under Interior Designers

Styling with Antiques

The way people view antiques is changing, no longer is a dusty jewellery box the first thing that springs to mind when the word antique is mentioned. With shoppers becoming increasingly eco-conscious, antique furniture is stealing the spotlight over poorly made pieces..

The quality and uniqueness of antique furniture is enough to throw away your mass-produced furniture catalogue and enter a new way of shopping, like browsing antique sites such as and our favourite - attending antique markets to pick up high-quality pieces that come with history and character. 

So, let's get straight to it, how can you best use antiques in your home?










How to best design your home or office space with antiques: 

  1. You either have one piece that you absolutely love, a timeless piece that either you’ve inherited or purchased from an antique market or marketplace, and you build your whole design around that one antique piece. 

  2. You have a design in mind and you want to add those antique finds to make the design that much unique and personal to you. 

Either way, any design should be unique to you and adapt to your character and style. These days, no one has a standard look! That’s where antique markets come in, you can find items that no one on your street will have, your visitors will know the piece is unique to your character and most importantly, it provides a space you can be proud of! 

The way you design your home has drastically changed, with access to inspiration through platforms such as Instagram, it’s become easier to design your home based upon your personality! “It’s like how fashion was in the 80s & 90s, you had a handbag and lipstick to match, and that’s it. Nowadays, interior has gone the same way as fashion, it’s all about mixing and matching! It’s the only way you’re going to make it yours.” 

iacf antique markets are there to provide you with countless of choices on how to design your home and find that one-of-a-kind piece that becomes the centerpiece of your room.


Finding that anchoring piece that ties each piece together doesn’t have to be stressful, if you find an antique item that you’ve fallen in love with, make that the centre piece and build the story around that piece.

“It’s so flexible, it’s great, because you can now have anything in your home that you love!”, Emma exclaims.

Walking around the market, we spoke about using pieces for different purposes than to what they were made for. Certain pieces don’t have to now serve the same purpose, it’s all about seeing a piece and not creating limits to how it could be used. The beauty of antique furniture is that it lasts for years, in one house you could use antique shelving as a bathroom feature and then if it doesn’t go with the new design in your new home you can change its function to be a shoe holder in your hallway! 

Emma discusses how the antique cupboard *pictured above* can be used over and over again… “This piece could go anywhere! You could put it in your hallway as a shoe holder, you could have it in the bedroom as a bedside table. The doors are so thick, it’s such good quality.” 

"Antique furniture will last years, in one home it could act as the shoe holder", Emma imagined, "as it fits the design of the hallway, but in your new home if your hallway colour scheme has changed, then you can fit it in your bedroom as a bedside table!"


Mixing Antiques with Traditional

 When styling antiques, people can sometimes forget that   just because one item is antique, it doesn’t mean the   whole design has to be antique! Have fun with your   design, like previously stated, the centre piece can be an   antique item you just can’t forget about and the rest of   the room can be based around more traditional items. 

 “I use a mix of traditional furniture and antique items”,   Emma explains as we come across some beautiful   antique tiles, “a lot of my designs have a lot of colourful   tiles in them, there is a big tradition of using tiles in   Spain, they are good quality and you can easily use them as part of your chosen colour scheme to add interest to the room.”

“Rather than using colourful wallpaper or colourful furniture, you could use tiles!” Tiles don’t have to be restricted to the kitchen, Emma emphasizes how you can use them (tiles) in any room. “It’s just about having an eye for detail, knowing what’s good for your personal taste and using these to find your forever piece.” 

Visit for a beautiful selection of antique tiles, ranging from Victorian tiles, Art Deco tiles, Vintage tiles, Art Nouveau & much much more! The antique tiles available are hand painted and come with history, such as the Mintons Aesthetic Movement Tile C.1882, for sale on by Williams Antiques & Restoration.

When analysing antique furniture, there is often an element of surprise that comes with the piece! The design and detail of items are much more thought through than any basic furniture design. Emma discovered a particular surprise with a small antique round table, “This is a side table but who would have thought there would be a draw there!” Not only does antique furniture have elements of surprise in its design, but also in its practical use... “It’s used as a little shelf, you can put your drinks closer to you when relaxing!”


We have discussed the quality and use of antique furniture but what about those delicate antique finds that also contributes to adding personal character to your room? Antique furniture isn’t the only thing you can find at iacf antiques markets, delicate glassware is another popular attribution to iacf antiques markets. Glassware provides countless benefits in interior designing, there are numerous unique glassware antiques at iacf, each providing a shimmer of personality and delicacy, the possibilities are endless. You can choose from glass vases, glass domes, glass boxes, glass dishes, glass jewellery boxes and so much more. 



Glass doesn’t have to be transparent, this beautiful glass light shimmers blue lighting which fits with the overall design perfectly. “The colour of the glass is absolutely stunning, it’s beautiful. That is one of a kind.” 

Emma expresses how the beauty of antique glass is that you can really see the effort and work that has gone into each piece. Looking at the detail of the gold and blue light, you can see it isn’t perfect, but that is what makes it so unique and a beautiful addition to any room. 

To people who are aware of the benefits of antique furniture, using antiques in their home isn’t questionable, however there are still some people who don’t realise the potential of using antiques in their home.

We questioned Emma as to why this might be, “People sometimes think of antiques as bulky furniture, it isn’t. This piece here”, Emma points to the 3-story antique table with mirror (pictured above), “it’s great for the bedroom or bathroom as shelving, it’s 3 shelves, a mirror and such a beautiful piece of furniture. The design is quite narrow and has a rounded shape that maximises the space, you can see a lot of thought and consideration has gone into a piece of furniture like that”. 


Another example are these antique stools here (pictured above). Emma explains how the quality is extraordinary. Emma speaks with the antique dealer who is selling this item, he goes on to express how much thought and detail goes into these pieces, “the legs are carved individually and then attached. It is made out of fruit wood, they always sell well as they can be used for so many things, like a side stool!”


Fun Decor

There will always be something at iacf antiques markets that will make you smile! We spotted a puffer fish hanging on a string, Emma laughs “you can’t get more unique than this! Forget your anchors and coastal decor, this is your original coastal look!”.

Remember to try and enjoy your designing experience as much as possible, the best designs are those that come from love and enjoyment!


Exploring Creativity when Antiques Shopping

When you find a piece of furniture at iacf antiques markets, what you see isn’t always what you get. You can put your own creative flair on things, the furniture can simply act as the base. 

Emma discovered some white chairs at the market, “What I would do with these chairs is I would re-cover the seats in a funky fabric and then paint the frame in a very daring colour, like an acid yellow or an acid green that just screams ‘street art!

“You’re going from something that’s really conservative to something that’s really out there.”


Bringing Interior Design Clients to iacf Antiques Markets

“I (Emma) would love to bring clients here (iacf Antiques Markets) and take them around, get them to view all the variety of items available and we can then make a joined decision on what they love  and what we can bring back to their spaces. They would love that”. 

Thank you Emma Martin for the fantastic recommendation on our Antiques Markets, we can't wait to welcome you to our future markets.

Coca-Cola Umbrella Girls Festoon Dating to 1918

Morphy Auctions

Being one of the most recognized brands around the world, it's no wonder that Coke collectibles garner their share of interest. Prices for the oldest Coca-Cola memorabilia can be very steep, and even items made during the 1940s and 50s are usually quite popular and pricey as new Coke collectors enter the marketplace and demand increases.

Coca-Cola Norman Rockwell Serving Tray

This serving tray features the artwork of Norman Rockwell and is dated around 1931. Depicting a young boy enjoying a Coke while eating lunch with his dog next to a tree, it has beautiful, strong colors. There are just a few small rubs to the rim, though the overall condition is excellent. The tray measures 13 1/4 by 10 1/2 inches.

The selling price was $600 at Morphy Auctions in 2013. A near-mint version of this tray sold at auction for $1,610 in 2010.

Take care when valuing Coke trays as many of the most valuable examples have been reproduced.

Vibrant colors are a hallmark of Coke collectibles, as seen in this beautiful umbrella girls festoon, which was released somewhere around 1918.
