Articles of interest from our sister blog

As many of our regular readers know, I started a “sister blog” a few months ago, dealing with my exploration of the intersection of art from the past and art from the present, and specifically how this impacts my own work as an artist. As so much of my work is impacted by art from the distant past, I thought it worth sharing some of my posts from the other blog site. Comments welcome:

Clio Ancient Art Makes a Bold Move

As dealers in the antiquities trade go, we’ve never been very conventional here at Clio. In keeping with that reputation, we’re making a dramatic move away from our long established website and offering customers access to our stock of antiquities, ancient coins, books and more through a range of e-commerce platforms.

E-commerce changed dramatically the last few years. We noted the move away from conventional transactions over a relatively static website and towards selling platforms like eBay, Etsy and Shopify. Many merchants in all sorts of industries noticed it, too. Our own sales reports made it clear that to keep up with the changing nature of online sales we needed to offer antiquities and ancient coins through a range of sites.

Now you and other customers worldwide may find Clio Ancient Art at the following locations –

Find us on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/usr/clioantiquities

Find us on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ClioAncientArt

Find us on WordPress: https://clioantiquities.wordpress.com/

Find us on Shopify / Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ClioAntiquities/

Each of these platforms serves a slightly different type of clientele but collectively they reach countless millions of customers, including most of our established clients. Released of the burden of a time consuming and costly website with cookie cutter service, we can focus on targeted and expanding sales through a variety of platforms offering increasingly sophisticated analytics. This can only mean better greater flexibility for our clients

Our old website will quietly vanish over the next few days. Over the next couple of months we’ll be upgrading and monetizing our long established blog on WordPress. Our shops on eBay, Etsy and Facebook / Shopify will be regularly offering specials and a rotating mix of quality antiquities, ancient coins and print resources. We hope you’ll take the time to visit them all and find the one you like best.

Thank you again for your time and your support over the past 7 years. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.

With best wishes,
