ADVERTISING AND MARKETING
We use fully cataloged, live auctions and list our sales on ArtFact.com and Invaluable.com, reaching thousands of bidders and allowing real-time Internet bidding. So, although we're based in Indianapolis, Indiana we serve consignors and reach bidders around the world. Antique Helper also offers eBay drop-off services. We use targeted print advertising in International trade papers to reach traditional markets. Our email and mailing lists notify thousands of active buyers each sale.
Nationwide Collection Services
Antique Helper serves clients on a national level. We can make arrangements to tranport estates and collections to our gallery.
