Barnebys provides the auction industry with the tools to manage their business without being dependent on other platforms. It is a search engine for art, antiques and collectibles from more than 2,000 auction houses, dealers and galleries around the world. Barnebys also offers a free database of realized prices dating back to the early 1970s with over forty million sold lots. The idea behind this collective of auction houses came about when the founders realized how difficult it was to navigate the art world. In 2011, Barnabys was launched, providing a platform where all art and antiques can be accessed in one place.
The concept of Barnabys is to put the auction house and dealers first to maintain their customer relationships, and it is this founding pillar that has been at the root of the site's success. There are many different categories of art and antiques to choose from when browsing this online collective, such as clocks and watches, jewelry and gems, porcelain and ceramics, fashion and vintage, lighting, vehicles, coins and banknotes, and much more.
Because Barnabys collects items from auction houses and dealers around the world, when you select a specific item from their online collection, you will be taken to the specific seller of that item. Barnabys does not sell art and antiques itself, but aims to be the starting point of your search. When browsing, it is possible to filter in a number of ways; by type of sale (fixed price or auction), by country, by auction house or dealer, by category, and of course, it is possible to filter by price, so that you end up seeing only beautiful, unique items that are within your price range!
Barnabys has a number of different packages available for those who wish to join this brand and list their items with this collective. These vary according to the amount of advertising they offer. This platform sends out more than 1.5 million search alerts every month and merchants can promote their business through banners in these emails. By listing on this online collective, merchants get access to their own tracking tool that allows them to analyze performance, visitor behavior and purchasing patterns.
Barnabys has certainly made it easier to get an up to date view of the antiques and art for sale wherever they may be in the world. It is such a treat to be able to shop for such treasures from the comfort of your own home, all from one central location.
