1. JUST A REMINDER....
There are currently two major ecommerce awards in contention this month. In 2011 TIAS.com won the About.com "Readers Choice Award" as the best place to buy antiques & Collectibles online, beating out sites like eBay, Ruby lane, Etsy & GoAntiques. We picked up a very nice surge in traffic & sales as a result. We'd like to win it again this year...

Another major ecommerce award that is up for grabs is the AuctionBytes.com "Sellers Choice Award". Out of 52 sites that were running, we were nominated as one of the top 16 and are now in the finals which close later this week. Placing well in this contest always results in a boost to traffic, sales & prestige.

PLEASE take a few minutes to vote for TIAS.com at the following links and be sure to send these links to your friends and family (facebook) to vote for us as well...

Auctionbytes.com "Sellers Choice Award". The Web sites in the survey are in alphabetical order, so we are listed toward the end of the survey. You can pass over the other sites to vote for TIAS. See:
