    On April 15, 1912 the Titanic hit an iceberg. The closest ship to the Titanic was the RMS Carpathia, but it arrived 2 hours after the Titanic had sunk. Nevertheless, it was able to rescue the 705 passengers who were on the lifeboats. The Carpathia was a Cunard liner; the Titanic was White Star. Those companies were great rivals, but the Captain & crew of the Carpathia did all they could to help the Titanic passengers. It was the maiden voyage of the Titanic, so very few first class collectibles survive. The Carpathia's maiden voyage was in 1903, but it joined the Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic when it was torpedoed by a German U-Boat in 1918. The same company now owns salvage rights to both ships. I recently bought a steamer trunk from the Carpathia. In the pecking order of ocean liner collectibles I've always thought that Titanic was #1, Lusitania #2, and Carpathia #3. Please join us on Sunday evening for a program on Carpathia collectibles, in particular this rare cabin trunk (malle cabine). I decided to sell this piece direct through the iAntique Classifieds & the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver, rather than send it to auction, so you can check out the listing before the show. We're on this coming Sunday, October 2, 2016, at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Hope you can join us. Gary

    I've selected 10 items, all priced under $100, recently listed in the iAntique Classifieds & compared them with comparable items recently listed on ebay. You'll see why I call the iAntique listings bargains! I've previously done shows on the advantages to dealers for listing on iAntique, but in this show I'll try to show you why it is equally advantageous to buy with us. There are some midcentury modern pieces, vintage advertising, railroadiana, and I'm really interested in getting feedback from someone in the Des Moines area about a set of handcuffs listed by someone at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall there. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, September 25, 2016, for this week's show. We're on at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    Good evening. Tonight's show is dedicated to the memory of Ski Rozanski, head of the Coffee Club and antiques exert. The most interesting item I found this week is this abstract wooden mermaid. I fear Ski would not have liked it much, but it reminds me of the story Gary Stover will share on his show tonight; Ski's appreciation for texture and feel of antiques. This carving is a nice wood with a lovely varnish. http://www.iantique.com/…/…/listings/30016/Wood-Mermaid.html Remember to check back every week for more items. So, tonight's stream begins at 6:00. First, at 6PM MST, Gary shares remembrances of Ski. Next, Reel Design take a shining to The Shining. Finally, the Coffee Club with guest Ian and announcement by general manager Scott. All of this starts Sunday night at 6PM. Tune in by clicking the link below. Please join us in remembering Ski. http://www.iantique.com/live/ Also, have you missed a show?

    Gordon Rozanski, "Ski" to his many friends & associates at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver & Antique Advisor to iAntique, died last week. This week's program is a tribute to his legacy. Ski enriched us all with his willingness to impart his vast store of knowledge of antiques to all of us, whether in one-on-ones or in the shows he did for iAntique, such as The Coffee Club. I've selected just a few of the pieces from his enormous collection to highlight in the show. Civil War, cast iron, advertising, furniture, knives--he collected & was an expert in all of these categories & more. His wife, Mary, will now carry on as a dealer at the Brass, so we'll have a constant reminder of his influence on us. Each of his fellow dealers has "Ski" stories, and at the conclusion of this week's program I'll be interviewing some of them to ask what their favorite Ski story is. What I'll remember most is that he was active in the business until the very end, even though he suffered from health problems for years. He was buying stuff up til the last week of his life! We will miss him greatly. Gary
