Collector Favorites for 2011
The 2011 Collectibles Readers' Choice Awards on About.com. There's no prize -- just the bragging rights that come with getting recognized by the readers of one of the biggest networks on the web.

To recap:
In January nominations were open in several different categories for Collectors to nominate their choices for the Favorite TV Show for Collectors. Best Place to Shop Online for Antiques/Collectibles, and the Best Place to Sell Online for Antiques/Collectibles.*

The nominations were brisk and varied. There were several websites and shows that I'll admit to not knowing much about, as well as several others that were surprisingly rarely mentioned. It's been an interesting and good look at seeing how folks felt about the various resources available to Collectors.

After the nominations were tabulated, the top five in each category were finalists in the Readers' Choice Awards Poll. Voting was open for several weeks, ending on March 8th. Voters were allowed to vote up to once a day for their picks.

After voting closed, the votes were tabulated with winners announced on March 15th.

Now onto the Winners >> Best Place to Sell Online for Antiques/Collectibles; Best Place to Buy Antiques/Collectibles Online; and Favorite TV Shows for Collectors;

Note: there was one additional category for Favorite Pottery, but since very few nominations were received, that Category was discarded.
