Over 11,500 sellers participated in the survey.

This is amazing news !

Ruby Lane, although not as large as Etsy was able to give Etsy a strong the nudge for First Place.

 Ruby Lane was only a tenth of a percent ( 10th of a % )  from winning the coveted number one spot.

Change is everywhere on the net upgrades new perks cool look

Change is everywhere on the net upgrades new perks cool look | Antiques to Vintage for today's home, living and fashion | Scoop.it
Linda Caricofe's insight:

 

The Ruby Lane site has a polished look.

 

Ruby Lane, famous for antiques to vintage shops, has added a new look to their site that gives the shopper a cool view.

 

While this change is taking place, another addition has been added to Ruby Lane that has caused a sensation.

 

 Their online virtual magazine is stunning with a clarity to the appearance that gives the viewer the sensation of thumbing through a glossy luxury magazine.

 

Articles that are interesting, informative, and a pleasure to read.

 

As a shop owner on Ruby Lane and as a regular shopper on Ruby Lane, I can assure you, this change is worth a look.

 

The uncluttered no background photos change is slowly becoming the new look across the net shopping sites.

 

Uncluttered sharp clear images that look sharp and in focus on small screens such as the iphone is a must for all sites today as more people use the take with you as you go connections.

 

Antiques to vintage in today's world is keeping up with the trends.

 

The perfect blend, yesteryear, today and the future, united as one.

 

I'm Linda Caricofe, my shop, RC Antiques is on Ruby Lane

Thank you for reading my  scoop it article

The DC Big Flea who was best of show?

The DC Big Flea who was best of show? | Antiques to Vintage for today's home, living and fashion | Scoop.it
Linda Caricofe's insight:

My assistant photographer Colleen Young, attended the event with me so we could both tally the points of the booths we attended.

 

The lines to attend this show was huge, so, I do believe the DC Big Flea event can prove that the market for antiques to vintage is still as strong as ever.

 

I did happen upon a negative costume jewelry dealer whose name should be revealed, however, instead of revealing her name, let me remind sellers to welcome people that have stood outside for an hour in the freezing cold weather..and to also welcome dealers that are looking to buy.

 

My assistant and I proclaim the Hat Pin lady as best in show.

Anyone that attended the show will remember her booth because it was amazing to see thousands of antique to true vintage hat pins in hat pin holders arranged on a table on steps.

She collected hat pins since 1979, a collector, that decided to down size her collection by selling them at this event.

 

The most brisk trading at the Big Flea in our opinion was the costume jewelry.

 

The booths in this show were absolutely fabulous !

We do want to offer the suggestion of resting places for people to take a break, to rest their feet.

But, overall, this event was a winning big buys event that we thoroughly enjoyed

Got a gimmick, are you sexy ? Shoppers want the best bargain

Retailers lure to shoppers leaning heavy on vintage sellers

Linda Caricofe's insight:

The holiday season heralded new shopping trends that were once only seen at Antique Shows and Flea Markets.The new deal is , what is the best deal, or, the best price.Retailers offering huge discounts with free shipping and free shipping returns has caused vintage sellers to tighten the cinch on their budgets one more notch.Retailers buy in bulk, and are able to pad prices to enable the huge discounts and free shipping.And the vintage seller, the small business owner, is just not able to do that.Vintage does not come in bulk.Why buy vintage ?Does anyone collect anymore ?What is trending these days now that Martha Steward does not cause a run to the antique malls or vintage on line sites to buy whatever was seen in her magazine or her TV shows?After observing the net and the local antique malls in my tri state area, I have come to the conclusion that people want that good buy....that bargain.And they want items they can use.There are some collectors , but, in my opinion, most buyers of vintage want items they can use or wear.The days of not refinishing vintage are gone.Yes, the diehard antique dealers still flinch when a cabinet or chair is purchased to be repainted in the paint style to look old, but better....but, at least the item is sold, instead of sitting in the booth getting dusty.Vintage, good vintage, is quality. Well made, an item that has survived the years well, and can be reused today...and will be bought, if bargain priced.Can the small business owner that sells vintage continue to slash prices to get the merchandise moving ?Only time will tell.I'm Linda CaricofeI sell vintage.I now have my own web page, designed at a bargain price on Weebly, to help cut my expenses.By not selling on a site such as ebay or Ruby Lane, I am able to sell my items at a better price than before AND offer free USA shipping.Eventually, my RC Antiques on line shop will have a 200 to 500 items inventory, without worry of an inventory fee at the end of each month.So, come on over and have a look, and bookmark my shop page too, as I continue to add inventory to my shop.This vintage shop owner will survive, not because I have to, but, because I want to.I still collect, so, to collect, I sell items from my collections to fund my collecting passion.Thank you for reading my article, till next time,happy treasure hunting,best wishes, Linda
