I Antique Online

A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

An Evaluation of the Benefits Associated with Joining Iantiqueonline, What stands out mostly?

It is now time to tell your experience !

I have noticed that most people who have logged-in and joined the many groups on Iantiqueonline exibit excitement and other traits. Is it possible that there are hidden benefits associated with this social network?
The question continued to occur to me so I thought it would be nice to ask those who have share this site with me and the rest the world.

To get things started, let's evaluate at least three areas of possible benefits:
1. The social benefits of exchanging information with others?
2. Medical benefits derived from increased outings to yard sales, estate sale or preparing our businesses for better sales results.(exercise benefits,including the mind?
3. Financial benefits as a results of newly aquired information on the items you have to sell?

4. Other benefit that you have experienced or observed?

Let's spell the bean!

I certainly wanted take in everything you presented in you responded to the questions on the effect that being a member of this site.
I gain from you that We've enter this site as seperate people with seperate interests, but we soon change.
The tree melt into what has become throu us a beautiful forest national and to a great extent, international forest. A place where every scene captures the attention of all. The human forest where every tree contributes and where every tree is furnished its needs by the whole. This concept alone is more than healing to the mind.

You said that we moved from objects interest to people interest while gaining more positive outlook. This too is bassis of true peace of mind.

You then compelled us to continue in the small things that make such big difference in all of us. This is spirit that made success reachable for the early traveler to these shores. It seal their success in 13 colonies that now have grown together and call themselves the United State. Again, this healing to the mind.

Thank you for reminding us of what we can have in iantiqueonline. rescuelife

Because of the diversity of what we all collect, buy and sell, this site has proven to be a fun place. There isn't (as uknowuneedanother stated) a small niche group that doesn't include others. We seem to really root for each other and are genuinely oncerned about each other - even if at all just starts with a love of a certain type of collectible. I think we're nice to each other, generally not grumpy, and have a positive outlook that we can share when someone really needs it. It feels good to be a part of that kind of community. I hope we'll always extend ourselves to new collectors and those that might not know what they have and are seeking our help. It would be nice to be the premier site for that kind of assistance and general knowledge on the net. And I think we are.
And it gives us all a place to be among friends and like-minded folks.

HI. I just located the "add a comment" space below you reply. I'm so filled with joy about how well you get down to the point about benefits that you have personally experienced.
I have to admit that you seem to show so much power in using word to convey you emotions. You are indeed a great writer. I know that Dianne and you must feel very proud to share this gift.

All of those who have responded to this question are in many wayos true heros, Heros because you've not been afraid to let go of your true feelings and you have caused all of us to see beyond the antiques.

I feel challenged by tohis fast growing site. The challenge of knowing that some where out there is someone who might be helped if we continue to offer our best efforts to share what we might know or what we " together " can find out for them.

"There is no doubt in my mind, Iantiqueonline have proven to be a gathering point on the internet where the true hero is discovered every day!"
Thank you and all those like you who share so much with all of us. Rescuelifeproducts

I've joined quite a few vintage/antique groups. This particular group stands out.

I think that one of the benefits is the level of activity among the members. If a thread is begun here, there is usually ALOT of responses. This doesn't always happen within other social network groups. I think that the activity level helps people to feel more connected and allows the membership to really get to know the other participating members. And this aspect creates a closer feeling to being really involved with the other people as opposed to typing stuff out and it just appears on a computer screen.

The site has also attracted a very diverse membership compared to other sites that are possibly composed of a pre existing niche of people.

There is an enthusiam here that does stand out when compared to similar. I also find that even though alot of us are hoping to find ways to market our particular hoards of "collectibles", our love of collecting and the appreciation of what we discover is kept to the forefront..

:) I hope that I made sense. This post DID make me think. I know that I class this as my favorite "NING" group. Maybe, it's too early in the day and my coffee hasn't done its thing yet for me to write intelligently..

The mind. Yes the mind gets lots of exercise when you are trying to make sure that the information that you are offering is par.As a matter of fact, I have observed this too. God Bless your thoughts.

Keeping the mind active is suppose to be benificial. Boy has mine been active since I joined this site. My husband and children alike have said they haven't seen me smile so much in a long time. Life can be full of challenges both physical and mentally. Day to day struggles can really weigh a person down. It is nice to have a place to go as another has said to me on here "to help get you through the rough times". I have more then had my share of those.

I enjoy it when people are more upbeat and have good things to say about one another. It's o.k. to disagree with someone we are all unique and have our own free will. We just don't have to be ugly about it. There are enough of the "not so nice" going on in this big world we live in. For the most part I feel that's what we have here on IAO. I have never gotten so close to so many people in such a short time then I have on here. I hope to visit many of them in person one day just to say hello and to say you have made a difference in my life. Thanks.

I hope that I can make a difference in someone elses life, for the better. I sure try.

I'm all for having some t-shirts done up... I (heart) IAO.
