You Should Use the Internet to Improve Your Business

You should consider making the Internet a part of your business. We did in 1993 with the launching of our flagship site, American To this day we regularly review the features of our sites to make sure we are staying abreast of the latest popular innovations. We were fortunate the first few years of our Internet experience to have had 2 Internet service providers partner with us to help with the details necessary to establish an important presence on the Web. Without the assistance of EriNet & MainNet we would probably have suffered economically & administratively to the point of having to incorporate the Internet into our business. With nearly 2 decades' experience working the Web, we are now in a position to do for you what EriNet & MainNet did for us.
American Antiquities will establish, manage, & maintain a professional presence on the Internet for less than any comparable service available in the market today.
Browse our site for the facts & give us a call.

Help Me Understand !

Other things equal, i.e. one is not buying from a friend or relative, how is it that a business person will pay more for fewer products or services? Your customers won't & neither should you. Help me understand why some are opting for Sunday Driver Directories over American Antiquities.

The Know-It-All?

I am from time to time affectionately referred to by some in the office/shop as a know-it-all and a control freak. I, of course, know nothing could be further from the truth and present two points to support my position:

#1 I need only refer to my OSU grade point to establish the fact that I do not know it all.

#2 When you review all the services we provide (see "Our Bottom Line for Improving Your Bottom Line" at, one can easily conclude that no one person could effectively control most, let alone all, the things we do.

On the other hand, there are some things about which I feel certain. One of those is that every ongoing retail business must do all they can to encourage customers to visit their store and purchase their inventory. I also know that American Antiquities is the best deal from a service and cost standpoint available in the market today to accomplish both these goals.

And we back up that boast with a written guarantee! (Once again, see "Our Bottom Line for Improving Your Bottom Line" at

Thank you to those who may and who are Asking American Antiquities.

No Soliciting does more harm than good.

Until recently suggestions we draft tweets & blog postings and use Facebook and You Tube to establish and build business relationships were not considered the best use of our time.  However, with the new year and a new local, state and National political mix and the promise of a more job friendly business climate we have reconsidered.... so here goes.  You've just read our first blog and this is our first tweet of 2011:  A "No Soliciting" sign on your front door does more harm than good!
