I wrote this article on Walking Sticks for worthpoint.com, which is a terrific site for learning about antiques and collectibles and assessing their value. It was published today on their web site. I tried to reprint the article here on my blog, but it came up minus the images and when I tried to insert them, I met with no success. I imagine I will figure it out eventually, so instead I'm offering the link and you can go right to the article on worthpoint.com. I've talked about the history of canes, the different parts of the stick, the materials you might see, and several different types of canes. There are photographs and captions which describe some of the canes you might encounter in your travels. From both a seller's and collector's standpoint, walking sticks are truly fascinating. Each one is unique and a neat piece of history. And of course, please go back to Our Inventory and see if there's anything there that strikes your fancy. Remember, it never hurts to look!
