    Today on The Business of Antiques I'm back after a break during Quarantine here in Venice. I've spent the last month deep in thought about how we should respond as the antiques industry to this Coronavirus. I've spoken to some of the top names in the industry and in the next few episodes we will be discussing Selling Antiques in the Life and Times of the Coronavirus with some of the people who I think have got it figured out.
    Today I sat down with Margaret Schwartz of Modern Antiquarian - she in Self Sheltering in New York, me at home in Venice - to discuss how she is responding to the crisis. Margaret gives her advice on selling antiques during these difficult times. Modern Antiquarian is one of the premier sellers of Swedish and Garden Antiques in the United States. Margaret began her career at Martha Stewart Living. Her background played a key role in inspiring Margaret to pursue her interest in the home decor business. After leaving Martha, Margaret acquired The Summer House, an antiques and home design store in New Canaan, Connecticut. Having her own brick and mortar store, Margaret was able to apply and refine her signature style and passion for home design. She made a bold move to rebrand her store calling it Modern Antiquarian and focusing exclusively on antiques.
    Margaret shares her innovative marketing strategy, how she's using social media to establish connection with her buyers and gives advice on why you should take our Antique Dealer Training and Mentoring Program.
    Talk to you soon,

    Behind The Scenes in Quarantine with Toma Clark Haines

    Behind The Scenes in Quarantine with Toma Clark Haines

    In this episode of The Business of Antiques we share the Behind the Scenes Podcast with Host Cindy Hodnett - the director of public relations and communications for the IMC, owner of High Point, Las Vegas and Atlanta Markets. Today on our podcast the tables are turned. Instead of me interviewing Cindy - Cindy interviewed me - Toma Clark Haines - on what it’s really like to live life in Quarantine in Italy. We discuss quarantine, running a business, the changing tides of design, and what trends to expect coming out of the Coronavirus as well as how this virus has changed me. We take a moment to reflect on wellness. Now more than ever self care is important and we discuss the various ways you can care for yourself during these days of self sheltering.
    Until Next Time

    Selling Antiques in the Life and Times of the Coronavirus: The Modern Antiquarian

    Today, on The Business of Antiques, I'm back after a little break in the midst of Quarantine here in Venice. I've spent the last month deep in thought about how we, the antiques industry, should respond to this Coronavirus. I've spoken to some of the top names in the industry, and in the next few episodes, we will be discussing 'Selling Antiques in the Life and Times of the Coronavirus' with certain people who I think have got it figured out.
    I sat down today with Margaret Schwartz of Modern Antiquarian - she is Self Sheltering in New York, me at home in Venice - to discuss how she is responding to the crisis. Margaret gives her advice on selling antiques during these difficult times. Modern Antiquarian is one of the premier sellers of Swedish and Garden Antiques in the United States. Margaret began her career at Martha Stewart Living, which played a key role in inspiring Margaret to pursue her interest in the home decor business. After leaving the Martha empire, Margaret acquired The Summer House, an antiques and home design store in New Canaan, Connecticut. Having her own brick and mortar store, Margaret was able to apply and refine her signature style and passion for home design. She made a bold move to rebrand her store calling it Modern Antiquarian and focusing exclusively on antiques.
