News-Antique.com - Jan 13,2009 - Garden City, New York - January 13, 2009 - TIAS.com working with Architecturals.net today announced that they have successfully transferred thousands of items offered by over 400 merchants, from the Architecturals.net Web site, to the TIAS.com classified ads located at http://classifieds.tias.com. This move coincides with the December 12th 2008 announcement by Architecturals.net that they will be discontinuing their marketplace for antique dealers, artisans and craftsmen.
Architecturals.net will continue to maintain their online restoration center offering an ever-expanding selection of quality antique restoration supplies, fine furniture refinishing compounds and accurate reproductions.
The newly listed merchandise on the TIAS classifieds will appear alongside merchandise from TIAS.com and Collectoronline.com as well as being fed to Google's product search on a daily basis. To accommodate the large number of new listings and merchants, the TIAS classifieds were also redesigned for easier navigation by shoppers.

We want to welcome them to TIAS and look forward to cultivating a long term relationship with them."
