I am a buyer/seller of antiques, old books, and collectibles of all kinds for the last 5 years. I sell more than I buy right now. I sell through multiple venues. My interests are pretty broad. Photographer for almost 40 years, my pictures are usually pretty good. I love to research new items and learn all about them as I go through the listing process.
Website: Optional if you have antique, collectibles, art or related website.
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I've been interested in both buying and selling antiques and collectibles of all types for several years. I have an excellent reputation with ebay but have been using other venues in place of them for over a year. I am always happy to learn and welcome all suggestions.
Hi Ed-- Since you live in NH, there is a company called J & D Displays in Moultonboro, NH which sells 4-pocket postcard pages and 1 and 2-pocket pages for your ads. The 4-pocket pages can be used for your family pictures. In the meantime, put your loose large ads in a simple 8.5 x 12" file folder, sold at Office Depot, etc. Don't need to frame common magazine ads, or even mat them. The cost nowadays is high. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you the J & D Display ad as an attachment. Hope this advice helps you get started toward organizing your stuff. Stan
Hi Ed-- Good to be a friend of yours. Let me know specifically what you want to know about early paper, especially postcards, and what kinds of early photos you're interested in. What kinds of photos do you take? You say you're interested in stamp collecting. Do you have an album to put them in? Do you like U.S. or foreign? Stamps were my first collectible interest, when I was 11. Now I'm selling them at very reasonable prices. The used ones are 2 and 3c, or 4 to 6c each, depending on whether it's a regular issue or a commemorative. I have them from most years. Regards, Stan
Let see some of your books displayed. How about photogrphs of them and other items. I've noticed some nice items in your collection, want to see more. The world is looking, give them more and more details when you can. Your stamp collection look good -- more closseup would make good even better. It take time, but the time will payoff.
A picture is a saving bond waiting to earn you more and more money, snap it and watch it work for you!
You should upload the multi-view shots of shakesphere. Path working photos with closeup will make your items more desirable to would be buyers. Note; on research item will up their value. Just leaving the photo for viewing is great, but people are moved by connective info on the Items they fine attractive. It is a slow process but effective.
That is certain great news, by the way, when you say Japanese Collectors, are you referring to the group on iantiqueonline. When you get a chance, I want to speak to you about sewing, not with a needle, but online sewing.
