Garden City - New York - February 10, 2009 — TIAS.com (http://www.tias.com) the Webs largest online antique and collectible mall released their monthly "Hot List" of Antiques & Collectibles. The TIAS "Hot List" has been published monthly since 2002. These monthly "Hot Lists" are based on hundreds of thousands of searches by people using the online search engines at the indicated Web sites. This months list is a bit different, because we are listing both December of 2008 and January of 2009. This will also allow you to see how categories have shifted position from month to month.
Keep in mind that these searches are what people were looking for, not necessarily what they were buying. In many cases, people will search for items when they are just trying to determine a value of a specific item that they have in their possession.
Here are the top ten search words used at http://www.TIAS.com. This site specializes in offering a broad range of antiques and collectibles:
"No Movement" means the item has not changed position since the previous months list. "Down from #.." indicates that the item has dropped on our list since the previous list was published. "Up from #.." indicates that the item has risen on our list since the previous list was published. "Not listed last month" means that this item was not in the previous top 10 list.
