Recycle!  Buy an AntiqueADACAntiques Dealers of California

Membership in the Antiques Dealers Association of California is by invitation only. Prospective members must have maintained premises open to the public in California for a period of at least three years and be nominated by an Association Member. Prospective members must be of good financial repute and engage in ethical business practices; must carry a stock of quality merchandise which is antique (at least 100 years old) or, if of a later date, is of recognized artistic merit in style, construction and materials; must be considered to have expert knowledge in their field and must adhere to the Code of Ethics and Principles of the association.

The Antiques Dealers Association of California, founded in 1924, is an association of knowledgeable dealers pledged to integrity and fair dealing in the buying and selling of antiques.

It is our commitment to represent honestly the authenticity, provenance, and condition of the merchandise we offer for sale. Our association adheres to a strict code of ethics; therefore, it is our policy that all sales invoices issued by association members will describe the article sold, its date of origin, its maker (if known), and its condition, noting significant restoration.

In our continued commitment to promote the antiques trade, The Antiques Dealers Association of California is the founder and organizer of The Los Angeles Antiques Art + Design Show, held at 3Labs in Culver City every year. The antiques show benefits the Decorative Arts and Design Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. With over 50 international dealers, The Los Angeles Antiques Art + Design Show has quickly gained national recognition and prestige.
