Sometimes I like to take things a bit slower and just drift along in my boat and daydream about the good ole days. You know the ones, when things moved at a slower pace and change seemed to take years and not days to sweep across the nation. I imagine my parents and grandparents felt the same way from time to time.
Those of us with antique dust running in our veins tend to like keeping a bit of the old around us. But then without change, things would never go out of style and antiques would not be as enjoyable to have. Collections would not be unique and have no value until they have gone out of production. So I figure change is a necessary event if we are to enjoy our collectibles and our antiques that we hold on to so dearly. Some of the changes that we take to heart here at The Treasure Map are the ones made from your suggestions.
And lately, there have been a slew of suggestions, all with a common request. Keep the printed magazine going, but give us more of what you do so well on line, too. The way I see it, our job is to connect the consumer with the seller. And both the shoppers and dealers have been asking us to help them find each other on the web too. So we have been gradually increasing our web presence and even dabbled in the social networking scene. And go figure, you like it and want more.
Our web site now gets regularly over 20,000 hits a month and we have a LOT of room to grow. Our printed magazine is still the best out there and now it’s time for us to give you the same on the web too. You may be a shopper who loves the magazine but finds it convenient to have Treasure Map access on you mobile media device when you find yourself with a little time to spare. Or maybe you are a store owner who knows you need to be on the web but does not have the time or the resources to get there. We are here to help. It does not matter if you are a shopper or a seller or both.
Now is the time to let us know what you would like as we are in the beginnings of a great push to give you both the printed and electronic versions of The Treasure Maps at the same time. We have been taking your requests for almost 20 years, so don’t be shy now.
Give us a call, an e-mail, or just send us a tweet. Facebook me, and let me know what you would like.
