Well there's no one stop shop I'm afraid. It's just a question of trawling the internet, keeping an eye on auctions and then of course EBay (beware of fake tat on there though) Its taken a number of years for me to acquire pieces in my collection from Olympic. I've got sections of panelling from the 1st class staircase, green tiles, china and silverware, a cabinet from the Pursers office and a stunning chair from her a la carte restaurant. It's all out there still but just a question of being patient and doing lots of searching! Good luck and keep us posted

Hi Cam,
Another avid collector here. I own quite a bit of her moulding and have staircase paneling, a pillar from second class, a first class chair from the a la carte and a plate that’s actually believed to have been on Titanic and made it off the ship in Cherbourg. Auctions are a great route. The Aldrich auction dedicates a yearly auction to these things. Also Whitestarlinecollections is owned by the leaders of the British Titanic Society so I’ve done a lot of dealing with them. Great guys actually. You should come to the convention this year in 2021 we’d be happy to give ya the ropes and I’ll be giving a lecture on my miniature of the Reading and Writing Room Which they have on display. Anyway long story short auctions and like previous said, patience. I will search constantly all the various auctions including EBay ( but be wary of eBay cause I’ve seen loads of fakes on there especially silver and china) any questions feel free!

Wow, you have an awesome collection! Thank you for the advice, I probably can’t make it but I do hope so to meet y’all
