In the age of Amazon, used bookstores are making an unlikely comeback

In the age of Amazon, used bookstores are making an unlikely comeback

Early next month, Pablo Sierra is opening a used bookstore in Northwest Washington — an unlikely bet in the digital age made even more inconceivable, given that his only experience with books is reading them.

“I guess it is pretty crazy,” Sierra said, echoing an observation shared by some of his friends.

Or maybe not. Sierra, like ­other book lovers, has read articles about slowing e-book…

For many years, the number one place to buy and sell collectibles was eBay when it came to online venues. We're always looking at the options opening up to dealers and collectors, and in Sunday's issue of EcommerceBytes Update, Greg Holden is taking another look at the state of online collecting. 
We know that lots of dealers sell vintage…

What is an Armada Dish?

The word armada comes from the Portuguese and Spanish word for naval fleet. Fleet meaning a large formation of warships, at sea the direct equivalent is an army on land.

You’re probably wondering how this translation ‘naval fleet’ links to a silver dish? Good question, well the relevance to these silver dishes today is in fact the history hidden behind them.…

Pro File: Claudia Camp Antiques in Houston

Ask any antiques connoisseur in the Greater Houston area about Claudia Camp and you’re bound to get the same response. “She’s got great taste”, “She’s got a great eye”, “She really knows her antiques”. (They might also mention that her smile is like a beam of sunshine!)

We couldn’t agree more. Claudia’s seasoned point of view – more than 25 years of experience – captured our attention almost immediately after we touched down in Houston earlier this year. We invited her (read: begged…

5 Essential Tips for Shopping Antique Fairs

Based on our experience working and shopping at antiques fairs, plus tips we’ve been given by fair-goers and our partners in antiques, we thought we'd have a little fun, and share 5 essential tips for shopping at vintage, antiques, and other trade fairs! :)

1. Get there early. Check on entry fees and opening times (sometimes prices vary), and get there when the true pickers arrive for a chance to see the best items and bargain before others arrive. And remember- if…

What’s it Worth? (Dining Chairs)

For vintage and antique pieces without provenance, it can be tricky to know what an acceptable price range is. Luckily, our co-founder, Xing, happens to have a pretty great pricing-guide built into the back of his head (honed from his years of scouting, buying and selling all over the world!).

Recently, we picked Xing's brain about the value of dining chairs. Here's what he had to say.…

Running an Antiques Show...anyone?

Hi all, I have the wacky notion to organize our 5-6 best shops in our small berg here in FL to put on a quality antiques show. We have one sponsored at our museum but the promoter excludes local dealers with the illogic of 'who would pay $20 to see thing they can see for free?'. He really wants to segregate locals from undermining his out-of-towner show. And many dealer's are only from 1-2 hours away so to us, they are competition in our small (18000 pop.) town considering the annual amount…
