At work on our 24th Annual edition!

The Cochran's Crew has launched production for the 24th Annual Cochran's Collector's Guide, to be published in late October and distributed in early November.

We've come a long way since 1989, when we produced our first annual antique shoppers' map guide, covering three counties in Northern California. For several years we were limited to California, then we expanded by producing a Southwest book and a Northwest book along with California (whew! What a lot of work!) and finally combined the three into one handy reference book you can carry in your glove compartment on trips throughout the West. It's still distributed free within our publishing area: Washington, Idaho, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona, and can be viewed online from anywhere in the world here at our website, www.cochrans.com.
Since last year we've launched a new Facebook page (Cochran's Collector's Guide), where we plan to share some of the hundreds of great photos our participating stores provide us.

We still create free web pages, attached to this website, for all participants who don't have their own presence on the Internet, giving them a place to share photos of their merchandise and specialties even if they don't personally own a computer or have computer skills (some of them are still wistful for the old typewriter days, that's why they're in this business).

Look for this website to have the new 2013 Guide uploaded by January 1. And if you have a shop or event or antique-related service in the western states, and want to find out how we can help you expand your business and raise your profile, click ADVERTISE on the menu at the top of this page, or call us toll-free at 866-585-6162 or email us at info@cochrans.com.
