Syndicated Column: "Good Eye: a Collector's View of the Antiques and
This is a monthly, self-syndicated column written from an unusual perspective: that of a writer
who happens to be an inveterate consumer of antiques and collectibles but
who's also had experience working as a floor assistant, then later a front
desk manager, at a high-end group shop. This unusual mix gives me the
ability to view the antiques trade from both sides of the sales transaction.
To give you some sense of what the column has to offer, here are some
sample individual article titles:
- Top five Tagging Turn-offs
- It Pays to Vet Your Merchandise
- Dealer and Retail Customer Discount Strategies
- Coping with the Customer from Hell
- Thwarting Theft
- Ethics for Antique Dealers
As you already know if you've followed my web site this far, I'm a fairly
decent photographer and can provide photo illustrations for this column as
well as for any feature articles I write.
I'm pleased to say the column has caught on with several editors already.
The column formerly ran in The New England Antiques
Journal, AntiqueWeek, and Southern Antiques Journal. Currently, it runs in
Discover Vintage America.
I am interested in achieving national distribution for the column, including
West of the Mississippi, so I welcome all inquiries from editors of trade
journals in antiques and collectibles. I can be reached via email by clicking on the
