Reston, VA (PRWEB) February 23, 2008 — WorthPoint Corporation, the premier website for art, antiques, and collectibles, announced today that Thomaston Place Auction Gallery has selected WorthPoint as a data publishing partner. Under the new agreement, Thomaston’s will provide WorthPoint with upcoming and historical auction data to be published on the WorthPoint web site. With information provided by Tomaston’s, WorthPoint is now able to provide more comprehensive data than ever.
“We are excited about our partnership with Thomaston’s,” said Will Seippel, CEO and Chairman of WorthPoint. “With this new relationship, we add the sales of rare books and ephemera and rare coins to our database, from the 19th and 20th centuries. No one is more knowledgeable on the subject of 19th and 20th century rare books and rare coins than they are, and WorthPoint is proud to include Thomaston’s records in its data collection.”
WorthPoint is a collector’s social network and search engine rolled into one. The website is changing the process of assessing worth for collectibles by providing a vast database of sales records wherein an individual can assess the worth of their own collection. Through WorthPoint, collectors connect with experts to learn more about authenticity and value in art, antiques, and vintage items. Through the WorthPoint online community, members can contact other collectors interested in buying, selling, or swapping stories, and they can share their insight and knowledge through the forums and wikis.
