The cost of antique wardrobes can be prohibitive. The expense of any restorative work performed is added into the price. The history of the piece may have significance; therefore, you are essentially buying a piece of history. An alternative to this would be to search flea markets for antique wardrobes and do the restoration work yourself. This allows you to create a wardrobe that is uniquely yours. However, this can be a very time-consuming task depending on the age, condition and size of the wardrobe. Purchasing an antique wardrobe is environmentally responsible. You are buying an existing piece and preserving our natural resources. There is a very large market currently for antique wardrobes. They combine the functionality of todays furniture with the character and beauty of history, while not taking anything from the environment.
After the wardrobe designer/assistant has talked to the actor (parent for child actors) over the phone and taken down their information they will shop for the actors wardrobe sizes either at a local mall if everyday attire is to be worn for the shoot or they will schedule a fitting for the actor to come in and try different stock outfits or pieces on. If the assistants have bought out the stores in the mall the actor will be called again, but this time to schedule a wardrobe fitting at the production office in the costume department. The wardrobe fitting scheduled by the wardrobe assistant will be for a day and time thats convenient for both parties. The actor will arrive 15 minutes early for the fitting and bring any article of clothing he/she has been asked to by the wardrobe assistant. This usually happens for fittings for commercials. An actor might be asked to bring a pair of dress shoes or running shoes, belt, vest, etc. If the wardrobe is used in the commercial the production will pay a fee to rent that article of clothing from the actor. This action usually rewards the actor with additional payment. Special clothing and/or equipment rents out for about $25.
Craigslist is a great site to check out, as there are thousands of classified ads that you can browse through to find an offer of someone trying to sell a wardrobe.

Keep an eye on the "For Sale" section in your local newspaper. People who are moving homes will often have a final sale to try to make as much money as they can from the various things in their home, and you may be able to find a good wardrobe for a low price if you can luck out on finding a family that is trying to sell their wardrobe as they are moving homes. If you buy a used wardrobe, you will likely need to invest some money in getting it fixed up. Most people will slowly damage or wear out their wardrobe over the years of use, and you will find that your cheap wardrobes may need some repair work done to it. However, the cost of the repairs will be minimal compared to the money you saved.
The craftsmanship of an antique wardrobe may exceed that of todays manufactured versions. A centuries old wardrobe is a statement to the extra care and skill that went into the making of it. Much of todays mass-produced furniture is unable to match the standards of craftsmanship that were employed to produce the handmade item. However, with the advancements in furniture manufacturing, the quality of mass-produced furniture is quite good. The style choices and storage flexibility of new and antique wardrobes is equally extensive. Some of the more elaborate wardrobes of the Victorian era are reproduced today. The simple lines and styling of the Shaker style wardrobe is a popular option in todays furniture market.
