The Vintage List - Online Vintage Shop Directory - Labor Day Weekend Listing Special! The Vintage List online vintage shop directory and private seller's forum is having a special listing fee sale over Labor Day weekend - 3 months for the price of 1 - just in time for the holidays!
News-Antique.com - Aug 30,2008 - Hello online Vintage sellers - I am so excited to announce a special Labor Day Weekend listing special on the shop directory I started a few months ago called The Vintage List! First, let me give you the scoop on what the List is all about:
What Is It, And Why Now?:
It used to be that there were only one or two places where most people sold Vintage online, which made it simple for buyers and sellers to find each other. Times are changing though - in the new Web 2.0 environment, a lot of sellers are opening multiple shops on a variety of different venues, and/or on their own websites.
I realized that having one central directory that lists all the various stores from around the web would be a great solution for buyers and sellers alike! It is my hope that the List will become the #1 source for quality 20th century collectibles on the internet. No use dreaming small, huh? ;)
Vintage buyers and collectors are a savvy and passionate bunch - for most of us, it is more of a way of life than just a hobby or a passing fad! It is my hope that The Vintage List will become the first stop on every vintage geek's online treasure hunt, because they will know that the sites listed are of the highest quality, containing only authentic vintage merchandise from trusted sellers who make customer service their top priority.
Each shop listed is personally looked over and approved by me, if they meet a set of pre-established standards:
- 85% of their inventory is from the 1920's through the 1970's
- New inventory is added on a regular basis
- At least 20 items for sale at all times
- Feedback scores are 95% and above on those venues that allow Feedback ratings
Also, the directory allows users to rate listings using a star system, and also to leave comments - it's a fun way to let shops know how they are doing, and to let other buyers know which shops you have had great experiences with!
Making your shops known to buyers is a daunting task, but if we can come together as allies instead of as competitors, I believe the entire online vintage community will benefit. By listing our shops on one central directory, we can make it much easier for buyers to find us, and to find that special something that they are hunting for!
