Art Pottery Place is Now Live

As many of our customers know, we have spent the summer months preparing for the big unveiling of Art Pottery Place.  We’re proud to announce that we brought it online this week!  We’re excited and it’s our hope you will be too. 

Header_brownlines Art Pottery Place is your source for buying and selling art pottery and is the eBay alternative for all things art pottery.  As many of you already know, Greg and Lana Myroth are the team behind Just Art Pottery and have been since its inception in 1997.  In that time, they have built the company into the reputable and reliable source for American and European pottery.  This is just a continuation of living their version of the American dream. 

Wondering what you can do on Art Pottery Place?  You can place a bid on any of the items listed and you can also create your own auction listings.  Registration is both easy and free.  Similar to eBay, you may, as the seller, set both a “Buy Now” price or accept offers, as well as participate in Dutch Auctions. Online auctions and fixed price sales are a lot of fun and we’ve designed our process in a streamlined manner so that you can make the most of your online art pottery buying and selling.

If you don’t wish to list your items within the auction or fixed price dynamics, you’re going to love our classified ads.  Here, you can upload images of your art pottery, communicate with potential buyers and set your asking price.  This too provides for a streamlined and easy to follow process so that you can stay focused on your buyers.  Once a buyer has shown interest and you complete the transaction, you can quickly pull your classified ad.

We know how much the art pottery community appreciates a good swap or trade for special vase.  We have incorporated this option into Art Pottery Place.  Upload your images, list your art pottery piece and then browse the other user’s offerings.  Find something you like?  Great! Just contact the owner and if he’s interested in any of your listings, you simply make the arrangements for shipment.  This is a fun new way of adding to your art pottery collection.

We offer several ways of searching the site for that special pottery vase, you’re going to enjoy a pleasurable visit to the Art Pottery Place site.  As always, we really appreciate your feedback – take a look around the site and then drop us a line and let us know your thoughts!  In the meantime, welcome to Art Pottery Place and we look forward to serving you with the same commitment to customer service and ethical business practices that you’ve come to expect from Just Art Pottery.

Selling Art Pottery Part 1

When it comes time to downsize or sell pieces from your art pottery collection, today’s dealer and/or collector has many sales venues to consider.  These venues include:

  • Selling pottery to collectors or dealers;
  • Pottery consignment to dealers;
  • Internet auctions;
  • Live auction consignment;
  • Brick and mortar antique malls/shops;
  • Art pottery shows;
  • Internet malls/shops; and
  • Individual ecommerce pottery website.

In future posts, I will discuss each of these method for selling art pottery and the distinct advantages and disadvantages of each.
