Not quite ready to get out and shop for Antiques? Shop right from home!
Antique Allure has had to adapt to the pandemic and we’ve done so in some sensible and some unique ways. Read on to see how we’ve adapted our business in light of this uncertain time.
When the pandemic started, we had to shut our doors and our precious antiques stood quietly in a closed store. There was no foot traffic, no employees, no movement. Then we decided we had to come up with a strategy to not only keep our business afloat but to get the antiques to the people.
We had always been Instagram people, advertising certain key pieces every day. It prompted a lot of attention and interest. That concept was what led us to the next idea right in the middle of the pandemic. We decided to open an eBay shop. This not only allowed us to continue to share our store with local folks, but it also opened up a whole new set of shoppers; from all over the country.
It started out small, like a trial and error sort of thing. We sold smaller and easier-to-ship pieces. If you visit our eBay shop now, you will see we have started to add bigger and more unique pieces to our arsenal. Our idea worked and all of you helped to keep us up and running.
One of the things we have always loved about Antique Allure is the sense of community we have when you visit us. Our dealers and customers are passionate about antiques and there was always a conversation to be had. The pandemic took that community away for a bit but it did not vanish completely. And now it’s back!
Antique Allure is open once again and we invite you to come in and shop. We are CDC compliant and we want you to visit. However, we do understand some people are just not ready to show up in person. Because of this, we are keeping our eBay store open and we are continually posting on Instagram and other social media platforms as a way to make shopping as easy as possible for our customers.
We love antiques and we know you do too. Therefore, you should have them at your fingertips anytime you want. We miss our community and we are slowly coming back. This has been a rough time for everyone, why not enjoy your passion for antique collecting and help our community in the process?
Visit our eBay shop and see what you can find for your antique collection. Or visit our brick-and-mortar store in Southampton and see what treasures you can find in person. However, you choose to shop, we are here for you! The antiques are waiting!
