It has been a crazy-busy week this week.
We’ve had two publication deadlines: the June 16 edition of Antique Trader and the Summer edition of the Antique Trader Traveler. The Traveler will be available soon as a free PDF download, so you’ll want to watch for that. We’ll announce when it’s ready and where you can get it.
And, of course, we had the Auction Extra on Tuesday, and our regular e-newsletter that went out today. Plus, we had to produce next Tuesday’s Auction Exra early because of the Memorial Day holiday on Monday. [You can sign up to receive your free Antique Trader e-newsletters at www.antiquetrader.com.]
Also, the office has been abuzz with preparations for the Randolph St. Market’s Chicago Antique Market. Editor Eric Bradley will be out the door shortly to hop on down to Chicago and make final preparations there.
Whew! That’s a lot of commotion!
But, I tell you what: Seeing this week’s issue come together really made it all worthwhile. This may be our best issue yet! Here’s a look at the cover. We’ve got a really fascinating piece on industrial antiques as our cover feature, and Eric had the chance to speak with American Pickers’ Frank Wolfe on just that, industrial antiques.
I have to admit, when Eric told me about the industrial antiques feature, I had my doubts. But I have been completely won over.
We here at Antique Trader wish all of you a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. We’re planning on sharing our weekend antiquing experiences with you — and we hope you’ll do the same.
… and if you’re in the area, drop by the Chicago Antique Market and experience the excitement! Eric will be at the Antique Trader Appraisal Fair.
