Getting Widgets to advance and clickable individual photos.

I've used the embedded widget codes from my selling site at eCrater for awhile now.  I've never been able to get the individual photos to become clickable so people can click on them and go to that item on ecrater.  Also, the widgets have advance arrows that use to work but now they don't.  I use these widgets on blogs and other places and they work just fine but not on IAO.  Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong.  My IAO page is:…

Antiques - Good Economic Choice for Home Decor

May I suggest in these tough economic times, that you consider the investment opportunity of furnishing and decorating your homes with the addition of antiques and collectibles?

Collecting Antiques - It's More than an Accumulation of Stuff!

Collecting antiques can be a super fun hobby and there are many of us who do it.  Some, however, may consider the collector to be an accumulator of junk.  Some collectors may consider the hobby to be that as well.  So as a passionate antique collector, dealer, and decorating enthusiast, I would like to share my thoughts on this subject.…

Dressed for Success mean Antiques?

We've probably all heard the phrase, he or she is "dressed for success".  When we hear this, not many of us envision someone in torn pants and a paint shirt.  Instead, we see someone dressed nicely to make a positive impression on the public.  May I suggest that the same thing holds true of antiques? 

As antique dealers, purchasing antique merchandise for resale is a very necessary aspect of the business, but certainly by no means should this be ALL.  The same thing that holds true…

How to Choose an Antique Gift!

So if you are an antique enthusiast and would like to give antiques as gifts for your otherwise ‘not so inclined’ family or friends, allow me to offer some suggestions.

Nearly everyone…

Antiques Stimulate Historical Interest

I never much cared for history when I was in school....seemed like a bunch of dry facts that I had to memorize, but that has all changed and now I cannot get enough of history. What made the difference? In one word ANTIQUES! When I picked up my first antique and realized this one single piece of 'whatever' had a story and a history, and once I did a little research and read about the period in which it existed, I discovered a fascinating adventure over and over again. May I…

Antique Mall Etiquette

Hello everyone...I'm an antique dealer that sells antiques, as one of many dealers, in a large antique mall. The reason for my blog is not to be unkind or critical to our valued customers, but to educate shoppers to respect the various dealers and realize that all the items in these malls, are not owned by the same person. Think of an antique mall as you would think of a normal shopping mall....a large mall with many shops under the same roof. Within the antique mall, is the same…

For all those people out there looking for a promising affordable way to sell some of your merchandise online, may I suggest This is a free online site (no monthly fee, no listing or selling fees) that allows the seller to sell as many items as you wish. You are permitted to add 6 photos of any item. The piece stays online for sale until you remove it or it is sold. You can also put a widget link of your products in other venues and in blogs to promote your store. If you need to…

Collecting & Decorating Is Very Good

Collecting is good! Collecting and decorating is very good! For all of you who love to decorate and strive to create attractive and unique spaces, may I take a minute to remind everyone that when you are searching (and we always are) for that perfect piece to put on that stand in the corner beside that wonderful chair that we just bought.....that you always consider an antique or vintage collectible first.
