New View - Where is This Coming From
Upbeat attitudes, positive statements, a flood of record prices. Who breathed new life into this market? Where did this CPR come from? If more of us get on the right side of the ship, I think we will be afloat again.
I spoke with Elizabeth, the owner of The Shops at Malleries [http://www.malleries.com ], last night for well over a hour, and you know what? There wasn't one negative word about this industry uttered between us. What a pleasure to hear someone tell me that the best for us is in the future. Her efforts are centered on bringing like-minded dealers on to one site where they can exhibit fine Antiques and Collectibles. Good luck to her because she is on the right track.
Every day I hear from people that are excited. Sally Schwartz, one of the owners of The Chicago Antique Market [ http://www.chicagoantiquemarket.com ] called and couldn't believe the turn-around in her business. (And by the way, Joshua, Cindy and I will be at their show next weekend.)
And then, Bob Green, of Auction Productions in Arizona, told us that over 500 people are attending his auctions, and business is great. [ http://www.auctionproductions.com ]
And we're growing here at 31 Inc., too. Maybe our message is being heard, after all.
Micheal Hudson, of Antique, Collectibles and Auction News [ http://www.antiques-collectibles-auction-news.com ] called, asking if we would like to post positive articles on his new website. Of course we do! So, if you go to his site, you will see Cindy's article. I'm on a roll.
Bruce Rogers, of Discover Mid America [ www.discoverpub.com ] wants to do a question and answer piece in his publication about us.
Last, but absolutely not least, Phil Davies, of News-Antique, the source of our website News Feed, has been the greatest cheerleader and supporter of our message right from the start. You can find him at http://www.news-antiques.com. Phil was posting things on his feed about us when no one knew who we were. How things have changed! Thanks Phil.
We are so thankful for all the support that is being received, and the results speak for themselves. Yes, Cindy, we are a new voice, and it is beginning to being heard. I remember hearing that wonderful entry to a radio show when I was a child, "Up, Up and Away," and now I am hearing it again as a adult from all of you. Let's start the party and invite all our friends.
By the way, we went "international" yesterday, when Kevin Stone of Antiques.TV liked what he heard and saw of us and picked up this blog in the News & Views section of his innovative website. Thanks, Kevin. http://www.antiques.tv.
