Collecting: Don’t Know Where to Start?

If you were lucky enough to attend our seminar Aladdin: Past, Present, & Future at the 47th Aladdin Gathering in Coralville, Iowa this past weekend, then you know what is coming! As promised, the “Tips” sheet is now available from our Instructional Documents page under the Learning & Resource Center menu. If you couldn’t make it to the Gathering or to our seminar, you’re in luck! You now have access to the resources that I discussed.

I have also created a template spreadsheet that can be used to create your own collection record! Take a look at the new “Collection” page for more information and to download your own copy of the template.

Starting an Aladdin collection can be overwhelming, so we thought it might be nice to offer some helpful tips to get you started in the right direction.

Get started – have fun – and happy collecting!

47th Annual Aladdin Gathering in Coralville, Iowa

Exciting news!  Crownplace Brands will be heading to the 47th Annual Aladdin Gathering in a couple weeks.  We plan on having a table at the Lamp Show to offer special Mix and Match Font glue ups on site!  That means you’ll be able to pick your parts and watch as the font is glued up!  This should be a fun event!  We have limited quantities on the various bowls and pedestals that are available for this event, so it’s on a first come, first serve, basis only.  The bowls and pedestals offered are considered ‘seconds’ as they didn’t quite pass our rigorous quality inspections.  We can’t wait to see what kinds of color combinations you can come up with.  We first offered this at the 41st Annual Eastern Lighting Collector’s Meet in Wooster, Ohio, back in April and we saw some pretty neat combinations, like a Cobalt Grand Vertique bowl with the Vaseline Lincoln Drape pedestal.

We’ll also be releasing a NEW Limited Edition Aladdin Traveling Salesman’s Case that will be available to purchase for the first time, from your favorite Aladdin dealer at the gathering!  We look forward to seeing everyone there!
