A little fall cleaning at Antique Trader …

You’ll notice a few changes to your Antique Trader this week. Like every good dealer often does to their shop or booth, every once in a while we too like to take a step back and examine whether things could be better displayed.

The cover shows the most changes. Our covers will now highlight our main feature article. The right hand column on the front will sport a menu of items inside that week’s publication.

Speaking of inside, you’ll see easier to read feature headers at the top of select pages. Articles will have more informational boxes to help you quickly find additional information about events or auctions or where to turn to on the Internet for more information.

We will continue to provide you with complete coverage in the pages of Antique Trader. However, we will take advantage of the limitless space that can only be found on the Internet to provide you with even more at www.antiquetrader.com.

We’d love to hear what you think about the new look. Hopefully you’ll see the changes are modest and are intended to make the print edition easier to read. Send your comments to eric.bradley@fwmedia.com or in care of Antique Trader, 700 E. State St. Iola, WI 54945.

Two corrections of note:

A shop featured in the Sept. 9 issue was incorrectly identified in a photo caption. The Roseville, Calif., shop is called The Tattered House.

steuben 69083.jpgA Stueben cire purdue plaque offered in a June 19-20 James D. Julia, Inc. auction and featured in the Aug. 19 issue was incorrectly identified. The featured plaque did not sell. The $9,200 sale price should have been attributed to a 1938 Frederick Carder cire perdue figure seen here.
