The Internet Antique Shop (TIAS.com), a leading online antiques and collectibles mall, finalized an agreement with Tabletopsetc.com to acquire their merchants and inventory of over 110,000 items. Since 1995, Tabletopsetc.com has been a major marketplace for fine china, dinnerware, glassware and flatware.

Tabletopsetc.com's 250 merchants began moving their inventory to TIAS.com last week. The addition of the Tabletops etc. inventory and merchants to the TIAS.com system will significantly increase TIAS's market share in several of their top-ten selling merchandise categories.

TIAS.com President Phillip Davies said, "It's an honor for us to host them on the TIAS system. This new acquisition will give our customers a one stop shopping destination for all of their china & dinnerware needs and will make TIAS one of the top sites for buying and selling this type of merchandise."

Davies said the sellers from Tabletops etc are online ecommerce veterans with a deep understanding of the importance of offering their customers an extremely high level of customer support and quality merchandise at affordable prices.

Sellers can learn more about TIAS.com by visiting MakeAShop.com.
