ustomers can now browse and bid while on the go using “Manion’s Mobile” – the new phone friendly version of the well known online auction website from Manion’s International Auction House, Inc. – a worldwide leader in the sale of militaria and historic collectibles.
“There’s a whole new market of not necessarily younger, but definitely more tech savvy collectors out there these days,” said company President Jody Tucker. “We weren’t sure if our customers would utilize a mobile option for bidding, but we’re getting great response.”
What began as a catalog auction, specializing in historic collectibles with a heavy emphasis on militaria and firearms, held several times a year has grown to online auctions closing 365 days a year on the auction website www.manions.com – and now m.manions.com as well.
“WWII collectibles – uniforms, headgear, medals, badges, edged weapons, firearms, etc. – are a huge part of our business,” said Tucker. “It’s ironic to consider someone buying, say, a WWII helmet or dagger, from a cell phone while stuck in traffic. Think of how technology has advanced in such a relatively short period of time . . . it’s kind of mind boggling.”
