When Buying and Collecting Antiques, You want facts, not “pie in the sky,” promises or technobabble.
When buying and collecting antiques, it also pays to have patience and a willingness to learn. Understand that true small business marketing success comes
only after a reasonable investment of time and treasure and a
clearly thought out 2 year and 5 year projection. Even though those projections are subject to change, you must have a direction in which to head.
You also want to see pages written in clear, grammatical English.
Our website is a growing project and will expand with more and more free information of use to both collectors and dealers. Join us on Facebook or LinkedIn to keep current with our expansion, and offer your suggestions for other resources of value to you.
