A Friend Across the Pond – Antiques.TV

31 Club Co-Founder Cindy Stackler Nieder with Kevin Stone, Founder of Antiques.TV

Last week, Cindy asked if I would set aside some time to meet with the founder of Antiques.TV. “Who,” I asked? She was excited and said, “Kevin Stone, the founder of Antiques.TV. He’ll be in Chicago next week. Remember, the English company that was one of the first to carry our Blog? He’s interested in meeting us.”

Then it all came back to me. You see, Cindy knows I am willing and eager to meet with anyone who wants to help this industry be improved and is willing to contribute their time to that effort. To my surprise she made the appointment to take place at my home, which I always like. Cindy was in the office on the computer when Kevin rang the doorbell. When I opened the door, there stood a gentleman that I felt I might have known my whole life.

Gathering in the kitchen as Cindy prepared tea, we all talked about everything from politics to life experiences. We continued this lively conversation as we all moved into the living room. We were having such a great conversation, I think we had talked about an hour before we ever got around to talking about the subject that brought us together. By this time, I had discovered that Kevin and I had very similar experiences in the business world. In fact, I’d say it was mysteriously similar. And our outlook on business was a match, too. You see, if someone tells us it can’t be done, we say, “Watch and we’ll show you how it can be done.” Kevin Stone has a vision for this industry similar to mine. He understands this market is without limits.

Now back to the reason for the meeting. Last year, shortly after our book was published and we began developing our site and daily Blog, Cindy had contacted Kevin when she discovered his developing site and was intrigued by it. She spent some time going through it, and she particularly liked a video she was able to watch about Metamorphic Furniture. Kevin took a look at what we were doing, looked at our daily Blog, and decided to link it to his site. Naturally, we have a link from our site to his. Antique.TV was young and developing, and so were we. His site has grown by leaps and bounds so you might want to take a look at it, and watch for developing events between our companies. http://www.antiques.tv.

The reason that I share this story with you is that the 31 Club is beginning to be recognized as a true member of this community. That was one of the desires we had for this venture from its inception. Working together and with others, like Kevin Stone and Antiques.TV, we are going to have a positive effect on this industry.
Be sure to continue to express your view on the direction the staff is leading this company in and also any improvements that you would like to see made. Cindy and Chris are in a major development phase on the content in the members only section, and I think you will be happy with some of the new developments that are coming.

  1. Nice post once again.
    I gotta say I really enjoy reading your posts, keep up the good work!

  2. Its cool to know about the founder of Antiques TV and was wondering whether you could give me a list of the names of prominent people in Antique business dating back to 18th century through my email adress. I am a lover of Antiques and would like to get to know a lot if not more about antiques. It will be great to know about families such as the Sotheby family and the families that were friends to them in the antique business and their relations to this point i.e 21st century.


  3. I wish you the best in your endeaver and hope that we might be a part of it.

    God Bless
