It turns out that Christmas tree vendors are not the only merchants who magically appear around the Holidays. These retailers time the opening of their tree lots 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 more merchandise online, by opening online stores in multiple locations on the Internet. Established merchants who have been selling online for years know that the more places their merchandise can be seen, the greater the chance of making sales.
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, more and more merchants are now using online antiques and collectibles marketplaces 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 there are no start-up fees or "per item" listing fees for a dealer to build out a store.
