Question:Antiques have to be of a certain age (depending on what kind of antique you're talking about -- for instance, I think it's 70 years for furniture). Collectibles can be any piece of junk that someone collects, like ceramic gerbils or Beanie-friggin'-Babies or Pokemon cards.

Antique's are to expensive to collect.
collectible belongs in a collection, antique is really old and has some value..........
For something o be called an Antique it has to be at least 100 years old.....
example: a collectable is something sought after like comics, antiques are something like a vase or statue over a certain age.
I'm no expert, but i think that's right.
an antique is usually classed as a piece of 100 years or over.
Collectibles are collected for beauty, made in an earlier period, and are generally items brought together to form one group.
An antique has to be 100 years old. Collectibles can be any age and may be worth nothing or very little right now but may be of value in the future
Antiques are at least 100 years old.
collectables are what people actually want to buy, antiques are what people think they should buy
Collectables are prime objects of public popularity such as a fad of the day, Wonderbread right now would be subject, they started selling sandwhich boxes with the pattern on it because they are going out of buisness-- and you collect them in hopes of them becoming "antique collectables".Antiques are objects over oops---100 years old.
I think the difference is collectable means, it could realise value in years to come. Where antique means it is obviously old now, and is valuable
Hey Doc. i have no idea. My 21 years old car may be either one!

Antique's have to be a certain age before being called an antique and collectibles don't have to be. Collectibles are also cheaper them antiques.
