Hello!

We haven't done one of these big sales for a while, but those of you who have been customers for a few years are likely familiar with the concept.  This is when we offer items at discounts which range from mildly pleasant to downright shocking - with many items priced at or even well below our original cost.  Our friend Ed from Wisconsin was discussing seller strategy with us while waiting for the SOS to open up a few years ago, and wisely observed:  "You know, this stuff doesn't need to be celebrating birthdays!"  We agree!  Sure, there are always a few things that we might be especially attached to (we're all collectors at heart), and those items will not drop below a certain price.. because we secretly would rather keep them than give them away.  There are also a few consignment pieces listed that I hesitate to discount in the same bold way that I would for something that we own outright, since not everyone subscribes to the 'MAKE IT SELL' philosophy that guides us here at AGM.  For everything else, though - we try to make prices so attractive that you can't afford NOT to buy it!  Many of our strongest buyers on these sales are in fact other dealers, buying items for their own sites or to take to shows for resale.

A bit of inside baseball - on this particular Holiday Sale, the total original list price for these items was $211,390.  The total of the sale price is $166,107.  That's over $45,000 in discounts!  This means that if you have had your eye on anything on the site lately, chances are you will be quite pleasantly surprised by the (temporary) new price.  And it is just that - temporary.  This sale will expire at the end of December, and the items remaining will return to their regular price.

We are also using the sale catalog to test a few new features; mostly behind-the-scenes stuff, as we have moved the site to a brand new server.  One thing that you will notice, however, is that you can now navigate the gallery pages much more easily, and pick how many items you wish to display per page.
