Continuing its mission to completely redefine the way antiques and fine art are sold online, Bond & Bowery (http://www.bondandbowery.com) introduces DealerDirect an innovative approach for connecting buyers and sellers via the web. As the cornerstone for the Bond & Bowery website's new Premium Membership features, DealerDirect enables buyers to interact directly with Bond & Bowery's entire international dealer network.

"The current industry internet model only allows dealers to post merchandise on a web site and have prospective buyers browse and search for something they like," said Bond & Bowery co-founder Ben Spaisman. "DealerDirect gives busy designers, collectors and other buyers the additional option to track down items from their wish list with just a few clicks of their mouse. Imagine a user's increased buying power when they can have an entire network of qualified dealers at their disposal looking for that specific item."

Premium Members can submit a written item description and even attach a photo of an item or one similar to what is desired. Once submitted, the anonymous request will be posted to a dealer listing page available dynamically to all dealers. If a dealer chooses to respond, he will click on a response button and the reply will be automatically sent to the buyer's email address. Bond & Bowery will monitor all posts to ensure the list's credibility.

"DealerDirect is a terrific time saver and productivity tool, especially if you have a list of specific items you're searching for," said Irwin Weiner ASID. "It's almost like having your own high-end personal shopper."

The DealerDirect feature is the first of a number of enhancements for Bond & Bowery's Premium Members. In the coming year, Bond & Bowery will launch a number of new and unique features geared to enhance the shopping experience for registered users and further differentiate itself as a leader in this category.
