Hi friend! Like you, I am a really big fan of antiques and collectibles. I have been buying, collecting, and even selling for over 30 years now. Many of my good friends are Antique Dealers, sell at Antique Malls or Antique Shows, or sell Vintage Items or Vintage Collectibles. And one thing I hear over and over again from the entire Antique and Vintage community is this: I KNOW I need to be using Social Media to attract new customers and clients. But I just don’t know HOW.
For my 50th Birthday, I asked my husband to take me to see the leaves change in New England, a long-time bucket list item for me. While exploring Concord, Massachusetts, Will received a message on Instagram from a collector/dealer he did not know, but with whom he shared many mutual friends. The message basically said, “Hey! I see you are in Concord! No one ever comes to Concord! Want to see my shop?” BEST invitation…because we met the amazing Beau Ryan, owner of Rare Elements.
