An Auction Venue with the "Body and Bones" of eBay but the "Heart & Soul" of a Fine Boutique

Goose Creek, South Carolina (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- VBMShops is the first of its kind and the beginning of a new and exciting concept and era in online marketing. Unlike all of the "cookie cutter- eBay want to be's" VBMShops is a “STREET OF SHOPS” of auction and fixed price boutiques for antique, vintage and new merchandise of all kinds. Unlike any other site on the internet, VBMShops is comprised of specialty store boutiques and each boutique has a distinct attitude reminiscent of the fine boutiques found throughout the world. These boutiques will provide the seller and collector of rare and hard to find one of kind merchandise a place to shop and sell. VBMShops, as it grows will provide an amazing assortment of estate collectible and newer merchandise from every era and for every connoisseur. As a gift to the many wonderful sellers and buyers out there and knowing that times are tough, VBMShops is offering on any of the three sites open, sofar, 60 DAYS OF FREE UNLIMITED AUCTION OR FIXED PRICE LISTINGS so that you can try us out and see what a difference this Street of Shops concept can offer.

I am a 14 year veteran and Powerseller and buyer at eBay and I know what sellers and buyers are looking for and this is VBMShops took flight. VBMShops is geared to meet the needs of the small boutique buyers and sellers of Vintage and Antique merchandise who have been forgotten in the new philosophical direction that eBay has adopted. Quite literally eBay has turned into a wholesaler like Kmart or Walmart, pushing tons of new cheaply foreign made things into the marketplace and “wanting to be all things to all people”. The small boutique buyer and seller are looking for more…they want one of a kind, unusual and rare to find items that are yet affordable through an online auction or fixed price venue in the convenience and comfort of their own home. VBMShops has the “bones and body” of eBay but the “heart and soul” of a fine specialty store boutique, each having a qualified “shopkeeper” to share their expertise and trends that are occurring on the horizon.

Candace Kovel, the founder of VBMShops comes from a long line of antique collectors and sellers and is a 14 year veteran of eBay. She has stated that “VBMShops will be the auction site of choice for the discriminating dealer and collector of all things that have history and provenance.” The first three boutiques opened and ready for sellers and buyers are Vintage Gems Emporium at [], Just4Collectibles at [] and Art Antiques Galleria at []. VBMShops has had an unbelievable response and has received phenomenal comments from members of Power Sellers Unite, TIAS and past and current eBay sellers and buyers and have included “What a great site that looks and feels like any fine boutique found in any of the major capitals of the world”, “How brave we are” and “It is about time someone took on eBay”.

Currently VBMShops needs sellers and buyers of antique, vintage and new costume and fine jewelry, collectibles of all kinds and fine art and antique items. And remember, that for the next 60 days there are no fees for anything on the site. Visit [] today and click on one of three auction and fixed price venues open for business and register and begin selling and buying.

VBMShops was started with four distinct philosophical strategies. One is to be the only online auction boutique venue for antique and vintage merchandise in an environment that reflects the character and quality of the merchandise. Two, to be the least costly online marketplace for sellers, having low listing and lots of free extras. Three to provide the best customer service available, bar none. VBMSHOPS uses leading edge technology will provide an extremely sophisticated, yet easy to use auction venue. And four to provide all non-profit organizations a place to list an unlimited number of auctions at absolutely no cost, FOREVER.

VBMShops appeals to both men and women, from many racial and ethnic backgrounds and who love beautiful unusual things. Unlike most markets and retailers during economic down times, antique and vintage merchandise is still the “inexpensive luxury” and the auction venue is still the best and most fair selling format for both sellers and buyers.

Other VBMShops to open over the next couple months are Vintage Clothing, New & Used Clothing, Home & Garden, Sporting Goods, Sports Memorabilia, Books & Ephemera, Coins & Stamps, Bridal Boutique, Bed & Bath, Kitchen & Gourmet, Antique & Vintage Motor Vehicles, Ethnic & Tribal Peoples, Baby & Toddler, China, Silver & Glass, Handmade Crafts, Electronics, Music & Movie, Camera & Photography, Toys & Hobbies, Pets, Capitals of the World, Real Estate, and Luxury and much more as we see what the market thrust indicates.

Registration to sell or buy at VBMShops is free and easy. To sign up today visit [].

VBMShops was founded by Candace Kovel, a 14 year veteran of eBay who has a Retail Design and an MBA degree in Marketing and a 40 year passion for collecting antique and vintage art, antiques, fine and costume jewelry and collectibles.
