"Let's face it, most people think this is a load of old rubbish!" exclaims Heather Mildwaters doyen of the Queensland antique trade. Tongue in cheek, certainly, but is she right? are antiques and collectables mostly a bunch of old junk? This quirky tale looks at the antique and collectable trade not from the hackneyed "what's it worth?" type point of view but turns the camera from the object d'art back onto the motley crew of dealers whose obsessions bring this stuff to us. Examining their motivations reveals a tale of the spirit world to sustainability from history to the intense competition between these gloriously addicted odd-bods.
