LOS ANGELES, Calif. January 21, 2010
CollectibleDetective.com, the largest vintage and antique guide on the web, is proud to unveil the calendar of events platform that antique lovers have been waiting for. At first glance, the new calendar of events at www.CollectibleDetective.com is an easy-to-read page chronologically listing the current month's events. A calendar box at the top of the page enables browsing up to 12 months into the future. When visitors click on an event title, however, they discover a whole host of useful features intended to make finding, saving, sharing, and attending antique and vintage events a whole lot easier.
In addition to providing complete information like event description, hours, admission fees, contact information, and location, event pages have an embedded Google map so visitors can instantly map their route. Events can be saved to Google, Yahoo!, Windows, and other electronic calendars. Click a button to share events with friends via email, Twitter or dozens of other social networking sites.
CollectibleDetective.com's event calendar has powerful search tools that enable visitors to filter events by type (ie, vintage clothing show, classic cars, antique show, etc.), or zoom into a dynamic Google map to browse events by location. The RSS feed option can be configured to send users alerts about events matching their specific location or interest, while CollectibleDetective Twitter followers will regularly receive reminders about upcoming events.
Antique dealers can also benefit from these features, to plan buying trips or book booths at upcoming fairs using event contact information. Meanwhile, promoters and producers can easily upload events directly to the calendar (though all events are personally approved by site administrators prior to being published). A year's worth of events may be posted in advance, and promoters will find SEO benefits to having their events and web sites linked on CollectibleDetective.com.
www.CollectibleDetective.com is the largest antique guide of its kind, furnishing over 6,500 hand-selected links to antique dealers, collectors, appraisers, and other valuable sources of antique information. Inclusion in the CollectibleDetective.com antique directory is free, with reciprocal linking requested. There no membership or fee required to use the site.
