New pages.

I just added the  Travel page to the website, because people must travel if they wish to build a collection with quality pieces. The Brussels and Antwerp page are nearly done. If you are a dealer from these towns you are probably mentioned. I provide a small, free advertising space to all dealers guaranteeing that their pieces are old and not made for tourists. Alternatively you can have your own page on the website if you wish. If you are a professional dealer or have some related business we would like to present your collection on  

Discussion groups.

TESTIMONIAL:  10/29/03

David,

One benefit to me of my African art collection is that it's a strong reminder of my personal connection, having grown up there as a result of my parents' more than thirty years in Nigeria. This is particularly true of my personal and family items; but is also true of my more recent acquisitions; stone carvings from the Shona tribe of Zimbabwe, and traditional (ceremonial--artifact quality) masks and statues.

Our house is full of this kind of art and I take great daily pleasure looking at it, from room to room. Besides having much pleasure in looking for "treasure" in antique shops and flea markets, as well as various web-sites on the internet, I'm convinced that this is one hobby that offers a significant return on investment (should I ever choose to sell). Meanwhile, I enjoy researching each item; documenting it; and organizing my materials to pass on (with the items themselves) as an inheritance to my daughter, herself an artist.

David's website has been a wonderful place to read, listen and participate in an exchange of ideas by persons in many places, who share this common interest. Thanks to all who have contributed, and especially to David who puts forth the effort to maintain it.

Donations

Maintaining the website, newsletter and discussion group is a full time job.

I am gladly accepting donations through PayPal (Visa-MasterCard) to help offset my tangible and intangible expenses to maintain the www.african-antiques.com website, the discussion group and this newsletter.

Here are a couple of links for donations:

 Yes I give 15 euros/month  (I choose when I want to stop)
Yes I give A one-off donation (you can decide on the amount).

Reminder: Donations are OPTIONAL. There is NO charge for the services I offer. But those who make a gift will receive from time to time extra insiders' information and may ask me to do a one-time special research on a subject chosen by them.

Why? I've been trying to find a fair and equitable way to give everybody information on learning about African antiques.

In addition, I've seen "Open Source" do wonders. The discussion group has already 400 members and the newsletter 2400 opt-in readers.
