FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cleveland – February 15, 2011 - Accurate prices for antiques and collectibles are hard to find. The prices on Kovels.com are collected and edited by Kovels and other experts from sales at shops, shows, flea markets, auctions, magazines, newspapers, the internet, dealers, and other knowledgeable sources. Over 800 categories of the most popular collecting interests in America are included. Prices are accurate enough to have been used as sources for estates, charity, appraisals and other legal events. Also new are over 5,000 pictures of priced antiques. The website also has more information for those interested in antiques or collectibles. It has a free directory where you can list or find services for collectors, forums, a free calendar of antique-related events, and thousands of free articles. A paid subscription is available that includes access to a database of pottery, porcelain and silver marks, and premium articles, updated monthly, with price-filled reports of recent sales, price lists, and Q and A. Paid subscriptions also include information and comments on what is a bargain, what is out of favor, and what may be the next hot item, all based on the Kovels’ decades of experience with antiques and collectibles.
