News-Antique.com - Oct 14,2010 - Garden City, New York - October 14, 2010 - TIAS.com (http://www.tias.com) reports that antiques & collectibles merchants often time the opening of their online store to take advantage of increased sales during the Holiday shopping season which runs from October through the end of January.
It's amazing how many costume shops magically spring up just before Halloween. These retailers time the opening of their shops to coincide with peak demand for their merchandise. It turns out that a growing number of antiques & collectibles merchants are using a similar strategy to sell their merchandise online.
From early October through the end of January online sales for antiques and collectibles peak for the year. To take advantage of this selling season, many merchants are now using online antiques and collectibles malls such as TIAS.com to quickly and easily open an online shop for the selling season. Established online antique malls such as TIAS.com already have an established clientele and the cost and effort for a dealer to build out a store is minimal.
"It's an interesting trend." said Phillip Davies President of TIAS.com. "As sales for antiques and collectibles increase around the Holiday shopping season, we've noticed that more dealers seem to jump into the market with their merchandise to take advantage of the increased number of buyers. The barriers to becoming an online retailer have really fallen over the 15 years we've been doing this. In extreme cases, we've even seen merchants open an online store for the 4 month shopping season then close up shop for the rest of the year."
