Last Minute Diva: #ATT Antiques Trade Tuesday

Attention Antiques Dealers,

I know you’re as into Social Media as I am and I hope you’re following me on Twitter and Facebook!   

That said, I knew you’d want to be the first to know about “Antiques Trade Tuesday” – the new way for members of the antiques trade to get noticed on Twitter!  If you’re using Social Media to gain exposure to new clients then Tuesday nights on Twitter is #ATT – Antiques Trade Tuesday – proving yet again that Antiques Are Fun!!!

Every Tuesday between 5pm and 7pm – UK TIME – Antiques Dealers send a tweet with the #ATT  hash tag telling what makes their shop great. The winner of the night is re-tweeted by the trade introducing YOU to their followers! It’s a great way to toot your own horn and to promote the antiques trade in general, gearing excitement amongst industry professionals!

Your tweet can be funny or serious as long as you say why you are awesome – giving you a Tuesday night chance to win the opportunity to have your tweet (and contact details) retweeted and exposing you to potentially thousands of future clients.

The twitter account you need to follow for all the news and information about #ATT is www.twitter.com/antiquestuesday 

Hopefully this will be another way to promote the antiques trade and will also provide a bit of fun on twitter on a Tuesday night because Antiques are Fun!

Happy Tweeting,
The Antiques Diva®

Where in the World is The Antiques Diva®?

Dear Diva Readers,

We’re only into the end of our 2nd month and I’ve already traipsed thrice across Europe, dashing to Amsterdam, Den Haag, Antwerp , Brussels and Paris. Sometimes I don’t know whether I’m coming or going and whether to say Bonjour, Goedemorgen or Guten Tag!


Meanwhile as I’m on the road, The Antiques Diva & Co keeps appearing in different places around the world wide web! First it was a mention in tours-122004 “>Apartment Therapy’s article on French Shopping Vacations and Tours followed shortly thereafter by a few of my articles appearing in the Bonjour Paris newsletter.

tory/going-going-gone-lhotel-drouot/”>Going Going Gone was about the Paris auction house Hotel Drouot while last month’s Bonjour Paris column tory/ask-antiques-diva-salon-des-antiquities-de-bastill/ “>Ask The Antiques Diva® shared details on the Salon des Antiquities de Bastille in Paris. And while I’m on the subject of Bonjour Paris, I must say I was delighted to be invited recently to attend a champagne cocktail hour chez Karen Fawcett, the Editor of Bonjour Paris. During that event I was delighted to meet Lisa Buros-Hutchins, the effervescent founder of Your Paris Experience!

Saxon Henry - Roaming by Design

Meanwhile, I was honored to spend a weekend in Paris with social media maven and journalist Saxon Henry. While we were out and about in Paris she posted about our wanderings on Roaming by Design, telling details of our meeting with passemeterie-artisan tory/ask-antiques-diva-salon-des-antiquities-de-bastill/”>Remy Lemoine whose work graces the interiors of some of the world’s top designers. When Saxon & I weren’t gallivanting about, we took some much-needed down time in the city of light and one of our favorite nights in Paris occurred when I decided to don an apron and whip us up a 5 course dinner!

On top of all of this, I was delighted that the Italian Luxury Linen company blog Belvivere did a feature on The Antiques Diva & Co! Mrs. Conti had me blushing like a bride over the praise she lavished on our European Shopping Tours and the inventory in our Online Store.

Speaking of online stores, the Belvivere linen shop is divine and a visit to CEO Jay C Conti’s website is a wonderful lesson in linen. Recently I was honored to be asked to write a testimonial for Conti’s upcoming book, “The Luxury Bedding Makeover System -A Step-by-Step Workbook To Dress Up a Beautiful Bed & Revamp Your Bedroom Décor”, which unravels the mystery of thread count, teaches the language of linen & deciphers quality in bedroom decor.

Andrea Martin - Expat Women.com

While that covers Europe, I was surprised to get a note from a contact on LinkedIn who had heard Andrea Martin of Expat Women.com speak on women entrepreneurs. My contact Jeannine wrote,

“I went to a talk in Singapore about owning your own business and the speaker used you – The Antiques Diva – as an example. I was like “Wow!, I know her”…. I’ll never forget going to your beautiful home in Amsterdam. It was so well decorated and all of the food and every detail was just right. I’m sure your business must be great if you put as much love into your business as you do your home.”

Love indeed – my company The Antiques Diva & Co continues to grow out of passion for what I do! If you want to follow my day-to-day, make sure to become a fan on The Antiques Diva & Co Facebook page or follow my tweets on Twitter!

Until next time,

The Antiques Diva®
