Barnebys provides the auction industry the tools to manage its businesses without a dependency 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-to-use database of realized prices, dating back to the beginning of the 1970s and providing over forty million sold lots. The idea behind this collective of auction houses can when the founders realized how difficult it was to navigate around 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 that the auction house and dealers are put at the forefront to maintain their customer relationships, and it is this founding pillar that has been at the root of the success of the site.  There are many different categories of art and antiques to choose from when browsing this online collective, such as watches and clocks, jewelry and gems, porcelain and pottery, fashion and vintage, lighting, vehicles, coins, and banknotes, and so much more.

Since Barnabys collects items from auction houses and dealers across the world, when you select a specific item from their online collective you will be brought to the specific seller of that item. Barnabys are not selling art and antiques of their own accord but aims to be the starting point of your search. When browsing, it is possible to filter in a number of different 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 you only end up looking at beautiful, unique items that are within your price range!

Barnabys has a number of different packages available for those that want 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 each month and dealers can promote their business through banners in these emails. When listing on this online collective, dealers get access to their own tracking tool that enables them to analyze performance, visitors’ behavior, and purchase patterns.

Barnabys has certainly made it easier to gain a current view of the antiques and works of art on 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 one’s own home and from just one central hub.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
