the dealers selling on scowters are scattered across the nation, and run the gamut from collectors of folk art and costume jewelry to collectors of some of the finest 20th century art and antiques. we have dealers who have real brick & mortar galleries, to dealers with nothing more than an etsy page of stuff in their garage; we have some of the finest names from 1stdibs and one kings lane, and we also have bottom feeders like moi who just list their finds on craigslist to finance their next score. ;-) but fancy, or plain, folksy, or sophisticated, we all can't stop buying and we've discovered for us, it's not just a habit, but a whole lifestyle. we live, eat, breathe, dream (and joke) about cool old stuff, and now we want to share our
facebook flash sale. every thursday night, we start posting our favorite finds for the week, and give you (and each other- not gonna lie) a chance to buy our goods. we were doing this behind the scenes via FB messages anyhoo, so we thought why not open it up to everyone! and it couldn't be simpler to use and participate in- when an item is posted that tickles your fancy, just comment "SOLD" and private message the scowters page with your email. scowters in turn will put you in touch with your dealer to finish the transaction (most of us take paypal, or credit cards). the dealer then ships your item off within 4 business days of purchase. that easy- just you and the dealer, no middle man.
facebook, it's also sort of a social venue. we dealers sit by the computer (when we're available) with a glass of wine and comment and chat as the items pop up. it's relaxed and fun, and since we all have our areas of expertise, you might learn something as well... though mostly we just comment "no way- i want that!" and "you are selling that waaay too cheap- somebody buy this before i do!". ;-) (remember, we're addicts- every purchase you make saves us from ourselves)
scowters facebook page so you can see the goodies when we list them, then kick back every thursday night while these awesome finds (and more) fill your facebook stream is filled with vintage goodness!
