Toma is The Antiques Diva, owner of Europe and Asia’s largest antiques touring and sourcing company. After speaking at ADAC their marketing director Melissa Wilson was quoted as saying, “She shouldn’t be called The Antiques Diva but rather The Antiques Maven!”  A favorite part of her job is sharing her knowledge whether by taking clients on an antiques buying tour or teaching readers and listeners through her articles for leading publications and speaking engagements across the USA and Europe.

Working with some of the top names in antiques and design, Clark Haines is in the unique position of being able to forecast trends in design based upon noting the plethora of requests for certain pieces and periods.

An authority on how to buy antiques in Europe and Asia and ship them to the buyer’s home country, Clark Haines recently added a fine art and antiques shipping service to her company. Clark Haines is an in-demand speaker at international conferences, trade shows and events for interior and architectural designers, design bloggers, and antique resellers. Her intimate knowledge of the European antiques market makes Clark Haines a sought-after speaker and “cool hunter” to forecast interior design trends. She speaks often on the subject of  mixing antiques with modern furnishings, the history of European furniture and the business of antiques; as well as entrepreneurism and women in business.

    “Toma was invited to speak at the 2017 LAPADA Conference at the House of Lords to share with our members her unique insight into the dynamics of the client/dealer relationship. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she presented a carefully tailored talk designed to motivate and inspire. I would highly recommend Toma as an expert in the wonderful world of international antiques.

    "When we invited Toma as a featured speaker at the 2014 Design Bloggers Conference, we only knew half her story. We were aware of her penchant for antiques, travel, and social media, but had little idea about her powerfully energetic style that automatically captivates audiences.  Her command and knowledge of design and antiques combined with an acute knack for human connection makes you just want to be around her all the time.”

    Adam Japko
    Design Bloggers Conference

    "Toma Clark Haines is a fabulous and incredibly engaging speaker extremely generous in sharing knowledge. The audience walked away from her Antiques Diva® Style Guide and accompanying Champagne Tour with invaluable information and a renewed passion for world of antiques.  I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, informative and engaging speaker. From the planning stages through her speaking engagement during the Spring Lecture Series at the Antiques and Design Center of High Point she was a joy to work with. We’ll be having her return to speak in the future!"

    "The presentation given by Toma Clark Haines (aka The Antiques Diva) was a model of professionalism and preparation targeted appropriately for the audience. As a moderator for the event attendees told me time and time again how much they got out of what she had to say."
