Great Customer Service

There is an old saying "You Can Catch More Flies With Honey Than You Can With Vinegar". I believe this to be true, especially in customer service, so when I receive a question or purchase order, I always try to get back to the customer that very day and usually within a few hours. I answer their questions to the best of my abilities and always get back to the customer regarding a purchase order. They receive the total amount including shipping.

10 Reasons to Shop Cyber This Holiday Season

Why should people buy online this holiday season?

In reading a Forbes article recently about the upcoming predictions of holiday shopping, I found one statistic particularly interesting. According to an Accenture survey 38% of people buying at pre-Thanksgiving sales or on Black Friday will visit 4 area stores or more to purchase the sale items. That got me thinking of the "10 Reasons Why People Should Buy From a Cyber Business" during this season and beyond.

Reputation is Vital So Be An Honest Shop Owner

As someone who often blogs, it occurred to me that a topic which might be of value to new shop owners is to talk about how one needs to be extremely careful to point out even the slightest imperfections in all items you sell.

Stop Playing Guessing Games

Have you ever stumbled upon an item so interesting and delightful, you just knew it had to be something special?  Maybe it was the one brooch that really stood out in the box of junk jewelry at the flea market, or the porcelain pitcher that had been gathering dust in your grandmother’s attic for decades.  But without knowing any details, how could you accurately list this new treasure in your shop?

Setting The Stage For Holiday Shopping

Department stores plan for the busy six weeks of the year from Thanksgiving until New Year's Day. They decorate the stores and showcase the best items. They email customers and mail catalogs.

At the antique mall we decorated our windows last week. One window has a silver tinsel tree with ornaments, and old toys and stuffed animals under the tree. Another window always has a vintage TV with another TV inside playing old movies via DVD. A TV lamp is on top the TV cabinet. Small items can be displayed in that window as the TV plays holiday movies. A child’s sled, old ice skates, Santa and his elves are on display in the third window. The old plastic Santa, reindeer and soldiers with lights are especially lovely at night. Another window has a fireplace with stockings hung up on the mantel.

Rinker's Opinion: Collecting Specific Designers and Industrial Design

Antiques and collectibles associated with specific designers/industrial designers are attracting a great deal of collecting attention. What do I need to know about this collecting phenomenon?

Design as a value added factor in determining the worth of antiques and collectibles is increasing. First, this is a logical consequence of the emphasis placed on decorator, as opposed to collector or reuse, value in the 2010s antiques and collectibles marketplace. “The Look” is critical.
