As an antique dealer, we saw a need for a trustworthy, personal and easy to shop online antique platform.
GREENSBORO, N.C. (PRWEB) March 21, 2018
Observing a disconnect between the way typical online antique websites connect dealers and shoppers, a group of antique dealers and technology experts have launched a new platform that will elevate the way designers and consumers transact with dealers over the internet.
Dalton Bain is a one-of-a-kind online boutique experience, bringing together the finest antique dealers to provide a superior online shopping experience. Unlike other platforms in the space, Dalton Bain has removed many of the barriers that have made such transactions costly, complex and difficult to complete for both dealer and consumer.
“As an antique dealer, we saw a need for a trustworthy, personal and easy to shop online antique platform,” said Dalton Bain founder Ben Cochrane, a third-generation antique dealer with brick-and-mortar stores across the Southeastern U.S., and a vision to improve the online antique shopping experience.
Like many of his counterparts in the antique industry, Cochrane understands the antique buying challenge from both sides of the transaction. As someone who spends his time searching far and wide to curate items for consumers, Cochrane created Dalton Bain, in part, to solve a problem that dealers like himself often experience -- how to reach, and stay connected, with customers in the digital age -- without losing the personal connection to which they are accustomed.
“Our selection is focused on high-end, superior quality pieces that you normally have to spend hours to find,” Cochrane said. “Our platform allows designers and homeowners to shop at their convenience, communicate directly with the dealers, and ask any questions before they purchase.”
Dalton Bain is backed by dealers with an enviable pedigree in the antiques industry. Their generations of industry experience and eye for the finest and rarest of selections promotes a level of detail and trust that would be hard to replicate elsewhere. For designers, it’s the perfect way to expand their resources and find the perfect piece for any project.
“We’re excited to be adding new dealers and inventory to Dalton Bain everyday,” said Cochrane. “This is an important resource that brings together dealers and shoppers in a way that was previously missing from the marketplace. And it’s all backed by free returns so shoppers can feel completely comfortable engaging with the dealers featured on Dalton Bain.”
