Rare Victorian Antique Classifieds

by John Werry on May 26, 2009

There are some exciting new additions coming to Rare Victorian this week, so please be checking back over the coming days to see what is in store. I have been very busy behind the scenes and I still owe you a follow-up post to the Jenny Lind saga and it is in the works, but I wanted to make a quick announcement about one of the changes at Rare Victorian in the meantime.

I’ve opened a new Classifieds section on the main Rare Victorian site for everyone to have a prominent location to sell Victorian-oriented items to Victorian-oriented collectors. The 5-day listing is currently free to encourage you all to list some of your items and get the classifieds page started. There are also 30 and 120 day listings for a nominal flat fee (regardless of item value) and there are never final value fees of any kind.  There is a 50% discount when you list 5 or more items.  I welcome dealers to submit their items in the classifieds as well.

With Ebay you get a maximum listing duration of 10 days with fees that I don’t have to explain to you can get expensive.  Craigslist provides 30-day listings for free, but it is not a Victorian-only site with Victorian-only visitors as this one is and your Craigslist listing is limited to your geographic region.  Your classified ad here will literally reach the world of Victorian collectors.

Yeah, good idea. I’ll buy the the wall hung cab if its not already taken, at 95 bucks, how can i lose? I am guessing that the dimentions are not listed nor the primary wood (walnut?) because of haste in getting this started.

In any event, good idea to list furniture for sale.

Just as a note, eBay recently came out with a “Good ‘Til Canceled” listing time, which I believe is only available on fix-priced (i.e. non-auction) listings, which are significantly cheaper than the old-fashioned auctions.

Yes, if one opens or has a store on Ebay, then the GTC is available, but as you say, regular listings aren’t provided that duration.
