The eBay Collectors Blog 2011 Update
A belated Happy New Year to all.
Eavesdrop on any conversation between antique and collectible buyers and sellers since 1995 and you will inevitably hear some variation of, “What will it bring on eBay?” or “I found it on eBay!” or “I’m gonna sell it on eBay.” Although many things have changed in the past 15 years since the site’s inception, eBay remains an important destination for anyone looking to buy or sell the rare and unusual.
The team here at eBay Collectors is comitted to bringing you the stories and news behind both the rare and unusual collector treasures that show up every day on eBay, as well as the passionate eBay expert enthusiasts who buy and sell them. You can look forward to a wide range of stories here; from the regular monthly top selling collectible items on eBay, to special guest contributor posts on specific topics of interest to the collecting community. Each week, we’ll surface new collecting trends, interview folks from across the collecting industry and chase the rare and unique items listed on eBay
And make no mistake; it is a conversation, (not a monologue)! If you have a story or topic you would like us to cover on the eBay Collectors blog, or if you have a report about an eBay listing of note, or if you are an expert in a particular field of collecting, and would like to share your expertise with the eBay collector community, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . All entries considered.
We want to thank last year’s EC editor-in-chief Ivanka for her hard work in getting this blog off the ground in 2009. Ivanka has moved on to other rolls and duties at eBay but her heart is still firmly in Collectibles so she will be stopping by during the year to provide guest posts, commentary and interesting stories about collectibles.
The team for 2011: Jordan Koene, eBay Social Media Blogger. Jordan is a blogosphere expert. He’s been a major player on the eBay Motor’s blog and he’s been posting here already since December. We are lucky that he has agreed to continue as a regular contributing editor. As for me, I am Jim Griffith, aka Griff, with eBay’s Seller Strategy team. When Ivanka approached me about taking over as editor-in-chief, I jumped at the opportunity. Antiques and collectibles have been a big part of most of my adult life; prior to eBay when I was a dealer and ever since as an avid collector of just about anything and I relish the chance to help insure that the antiques and collectibles conversation on eBay continues throughout the upcoming year and beyond.
