"Your Antiques Worldwide" is an apt new tagline for the entirely revamped World Class Antiques website, which has not only been redesigned, but rolled out to dealers globally.

Launched in 2013 as a directory of Canadian dealers and events, World Class Antiques grew into a true online community with interactive forums, nationwide event listings, and a road trip planner for antique hunters.
