Directory Help and Guidelines

Some of the material on this site first appeared in our book Kovels' Yellow Pages. All sources in the Directory were posted by the listed contact or by our editor and have been edited to fit our format. Addresses change frequently, and we continually update the information on this site. We welcome additions, corrections and new listings. This information may be used in some of our books, in our monthly newsletter Kovels' on Antiques and Collectibles and other Kovels' forums regardless of medium. Inclusion on this site should not be considered an endorsement of any kind by Kovels Antiques Inc.
