New York – July 4, 2017 Oklahoma native Toma Clark Haines, founder and CEO of The Antiques Diva® & Co, and her team of Diva Guides are thrilled to announce they are “Coming to America,” offering both private, customized tours and special Diva Lifestyle Group Tours across the USA, starting July 4th, 2017! Since launching in 2008, AD&CO has become the world’s largest Antiques Touring and Sourcing Company, offering buying tours across 14 different countries in Europe and Asia to design professionals and fans alike.
“For the last 9 years we’ve helped antique dealers from sea to shining sea stock their stores with inventory sourced abroad, bringing the best pieces from around the world home sweet home to America. Offering American Antique Tours is the logical next step in helping clients meet their Global Sourcing needs, and showing Americans the plethora of beauty native to their homeland. For our American clients without the time or budget for overseas travel, these USA tours – #NoPassportRequired – fill that gap. Whether you’re looking to buy one specific piece or stock an entire store, our personal shopping guides offer their vast knowledge of secret sources to take you to all the right places.”
