    It gives us great pleasure to announce that Collectors Weekly has been acquired by Barnebys.com! We are very excited to be a part of this smart, stylish, and fast-growing company, whose founders and staff love collecting and collectors as much as we do.

    In the coming days, weeks, and months, we’ll be making a number of changes—some big, some small—to Collectors Weekly. Many of these improvements have been on our to-do lists, and perhaps yours, for years. Barnebys is committed to helping us get there, but we will still need you to let us know what you think of our efforts—your feedback always makes our work better.

    Thank you,
    Ben, Lisa, and Hunter

      When I saw the sudden change in the privacy policy it became obvious this was about to happen.
    5. nutsabotas6 nutsabotas6, 3 years ago
      I agree with Fhrjr2. Is Belltown, still there ?
    6. Belltown Belltown, 3 years ago
      Yes, that's me in the first photo!
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Congratulations and good luck! Happy holidays - thanks for listening :-) and XOXO
    8. nutsabotas6 nutsabotas6, 3 years ago
      I wasn't sure, because of the different profile pics. I hope everything works out.
      Happy Holidays. :)

      Glad to see CW staff is still part of the adventure :-)
      All the best for all to come, and greetings!

      Still waiting for car mascots instead of hood ornaments which is strictly an american word.
    12. racer4four racer4four, 3 years ago
      Congrats all and welcome to Barneys.
      Tough gig for them to keep up your standard but it's good news you are still around to keep at it!!
      The new look uploader is a great start!
    13. bbqrare, 3 years ago
      Interesting outcome, change was in the air for the last few months. A totally different environment Ebay auctions vs Barnaby's auctions, amateurs to professionals, with their own established personalities, blogs, and essays. Looks like a good fit for CW. Curious about the big changes and the small ones. Sure the massive number of collector images from CW, will be welcome. Perhaps another internet collectible identification service is in the works. Intriguing!
    14. Ben Ben, 3 years ago
      Thank you CW friends for all the kind words of support. This has been a great way to finish 2017. Looking forward to doing some cool stuff with you in 2018!
      Best,
      Ben

      Ben, Its great news but I hope you and the team continue to run it with a gentle and human approach (no AI algorithms). Thank you for pushing Collecting as an Art form
    16. Collectomaniac Collectomaniac, 3 years ago
      CW Barnebys.com? I prided our CW family and our TOU for not discussing money. I hope that stays.
    17. Collectomaniac Collectomaniac, 3 years ago
      Quote form article; "Like Collectors Weekly, Barnebys attracts both seasoned auction-goers and new generations of buyers and sellers".
    18. Ben Ben, 3 years ago
      Hi Collectomaniac.
      Yes, we have Show & Tell, which has always tried to be a commerce-free zone, and then we have our auction pages, where people can browse the latest live auctions at eBay. In our minds, it's always been ok for both things to coexist.
      Best,
      Ben

      ohhhh BOO-HOO PDM.....................that's your issue?GOOD GRIEF.........
    20. Collectomaniac Collectomaniac, 3 years ago
      Thanks Ben. Happy Holidays to you and your family. And to all my friends at Collectors Weekly, wishing you all a Merry Christmas and some very Happy Holidays.
    21. Johnsmith Johnsmith, 3 years ago
      I agree with you gargoylecollector! Geez! cut the team some slack PDM!
    22. SpiritBear, 3 years ago
      I liked it when there were a bunch of independent competing sites for collecting and sharing information-- all run by different, unrelated people. If money were the issue that lead to this acquisition, I think an ad or two on the side-column would have been sufficient. Internet monopolies slow down advancement and destroy competition and uniqueness. When the bottle forum I'm on was acquired by another company, everyone hated it and many left because of the changes. Consider that when you go to modify this site. Don't fix what isn't broken. If it worked well, it need not be changed. People generally hate change.
    23. Hunter Hunter, 3 years ago
      Thanks everyone for the well-wishes!

      SpiritBear—We definitely agree that people hate change, but this acquisition should offer us the chance to finally address many long-running concerns that we haven't been able to fix in recent years. We will certainly keep the channels of communication open to get our regular users' feedback on what works and what doesn't, but we hope you will be open to changes that improve the site, even for your favorite parts like Show & Tell.

      ps. Phil, the name of our category on auto emblems is actually Vintage Hood Ornaments and Car Mascots! (though the full name doesn't always appear in menus bars/selection dropdowns on other parts of the site) :) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/classic-cars/hood-ornaments
    24. Hunter Hunter, 3 years ago
      pps. Manikin I believe that was actually breakfast. ;)

I am not sure what Barnebys.com is but anxious to see what will be new , I know I will still be here as a oldie I guess 7 years now . Getting older by the minute too :-) xo
    27. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      Thank you Ben, now that I am finished weeping I did see that you have added the Car Mascots and I really appreciate that detail. The other changes that I did note were all great improvements. I have enjoyed this forum for 6 years now, and still love it. Merry Christmas to you and your fellow staffers !~
