A New Rare Victorian Feature – “Special Finds”

0521 1 lg1 A New Rare Victorian Feature   Special Finds

I’ve started a new feature service on Rare Victorian called Special Finds. It is a subscription-based service that provides members access to some of the discoveries I find when looking for Victorian furniture on the web that I had previously been keeping quiet – the items I am considering bidding on.

Learn more about the service at the link on the far right labeled, “Learn about this service”, or just click here.

My current “Find” is partially shown in the photo and and the research I’ve collected on it will be available to those who sign up for the service. The expected sale range by the current seller is less than 1/4 to 1/7 of what an identical one sold for at another auction house one year ago. There is only a few days left on this lot, so if you’re thinking about joining, this particular “find” will be gone by Thursday.

As this service is new I look forward to your feedback on it.

Is this like: “John, will you track me down a sofa.” and then you repeatedly check all the auction houses & sites? If so, I like the idea. Not all furniture fans have the contacts to search all the auction house… nor the time. You thinking a yearly subscription? Or a finder’s fee?

Emeriol, check the overview page for a description of how it works. These are items I run across and not items that people ask for me to find. But that isn’t a bad idea either. I tend to do it for my friends already.
