The Upper Canadian Antiques Showcase is being re-launched as Canadian Antiques & Vintage effective with the September/October 2014 issue. Canadian Antiques & Vintage has a history of publication in Canada dating back over 50 years, to 1963. The publication was a merger of Canada’s two best-known antiques publications: Antique and Collectibles Showcase (dating to 1963) and The Upper Canadian (in continuous publication since 1980) following their acquisition in 2005 by Canadian publisher 2Brilliant Media Inc.
Publishers Herb and Sophie Bond say that:
“Canadian Antiques & Vintage serves its readers and advertisers through extensive coverage of national trends in the collection of antiques, folk art, vintage fine art, and vintage collectibles. We deliver: feature stories, authored by experts, on pieces and genres of collecting; detailed on-the-ground coverage of local and regional shows and auctions, including every major national event; personal profiles of passionate Canadian antique collectors young and old – why they collect, what they collect, how they began, the changes they’ve witnessed; insightful conversations with dealers and those in the antiques trade, where secrets are often shared; ‘how to’ collecting articles; hints on decorating with antiques; legal comment on a variety of collector concerns; antique-related travel in Canada, and also internationally, for readers on the antiques hunt; ‘Q&A’ decoding of heirloom treasures; book reviews across a wide variety of collecting; significant collections of Canadiana seen in museums across the nation. More than that, Canadian Antiques & Vintage is the place where Canadian collectors congregate and come together around their passion, offering their insight and experience to others. Simply put, our readers recognize us as the voice of the tribe.”
