You may have noticed a few changes at Collectors Weekly since our site joined the Barnebys family at the end of 2017. We know that change isn’t always easy, but we hope these improvements will make CW a better place to shop for, learn about, and share your favorite vintage items, antiques, and collectibles.
Our first major overhaul of 2018 was to make Collectors Weekly friendly for users on tablets and mobile devices. While our website was created as a desktop-centric experience way back in 2008, future improvements will work for all users, whether you’re on a mobile device, a tablet, a laptop, or a desktop computer.
After more than a decade of text-only emails, we finally added links and small images to our weekly Auction Alerts. We’ve also started offering a new Wednesday subscription option so you can get updates on eBay sales twice a week. Our engineering team is currently working to create an improved newsletter design, allowing subscribers to more easily shop their favorite categories. We are also fixing a few annoying email-delivery bugs to ensure you get all the CW updates you’ve signed up for.
After hearing many requests for additional eBay filters, we added several new capabilities to our eBay pages. These include filters for “Newest” and “Low Price” as well as a price-slider tool, allowing users to only see items within a certain price range. In the coming months, we will continue to update these tools to improve the shopping experience on CW.
In October of 2018, we began adding eBay’s “Buy It Now” items to some of our pages, expanding our hand-filtered shopping experience to a vast selection of fixed-price vintage and antiques.
We’re always open to feedback about anything you think CW could do better. If you have issues with the current site or ideas for the future, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to all questions »
