Antique Trader prepares for 100K celebration In celebration of an exciting milestone on Facebook, Antique Trader is offering a gift pack for the 100,000th person to like the Antique Trader Facebook page.
News-Antique.com - Dec 19,2014 - IOLA, Wis. — Antique Trader is nearing 100,000 likes on Facebook. In recognition of this milestone, the Antique Trader team has created a gift pack, which will be presented to the 100,000th person to like the Antique Trader Facebook page.
“One of the most exciting aspects of what we do is engaging with enthusiasts, learning about people’s interests, and simply chatting with fellow collectors, and social media provides a great platform to do that,” said Antoinette Rahn, content manager and online editor of Antique Trader. “Participating in and observing the interactions of others on our Facebook page is a wonderful affirmation of the limitless joy and knowledge that can be found within a community of collectors. We are honored that so many people choose to spend part of their valuable time with us.”
Antique Trader teamed up with Heritage Auctions (www.ha.com), SAFE Collecting Supplies (www.safepub.com), Pook & Pook, Inc. (www.pookandpook.com), and Krause Publications (www.krausebooks.com) to create the gift pack. The donated items include a $100 auction credit, antiques and collectibles references, supplies to assist with care of collectibles, and complimentary auction catalogs. In addition to the gift pack, on the same day Antique Trader passes the 100,000 mark, additional gifts will be given out to people randomly selected from the group’s Facebook followers.
