Virtual Collecting ~ Using Collectors Weekly to Take a ''Knowledge Staycation''

I've written about Collector's Weekly several times before. It is a wonderful site, with articles and interviews about zillions of different collecting categories. The site has a nice clean look (no ads-- yay!) and is very user-friendly. See the sample screen shots above.

I love their ebay search widget "Super-Browse" which shows you completed items that actually SOLD (not reserve-not-met, or no bids).

I just got their latest email/newsletter, announcing the addition of lots of new categories, and many new articles.

In this time of economic uncertainty, I think it's a good time to gain some antiquing knowledge, and with Collector's Weekly, it's free!

Sign up for their free newsletters here.

Here's some of what they wrote:

We've recently added several dozen new categories, including: Arts and Crafts Movement, Fashion, Vintage Advertising, Victorian Era, Model Trains, Cards, Marbles, Watch Fobs, Jukeboxes, Slot Machines, Fountain Pens and Seth Thomas clocks. We now have over 500 category pages and counting (see the complete list).

Check out the recent in-depth interviews we've done with experienced and passionate collectors... there's a lot of great stuff here!
