Dear Julia's Customers, Friends, and Colleagues,

I wanted you to be among the first to know that we have just welcomed 2014 with a new website designed to make your online visit to Julia's as efficient, fun, and informative as possible. The new site is handsomely designed, chock-full of world-class photos, simple to navigate, and makes it easier than ever to find the exact auction, item, or price information you need. It can be found as always at www.jamesdjulia.com. You have come to know our website as an essential resource for all of your auction needs. We are certain that our new website will continue as that and more.

The new website features a clean, updated design that reflects our traditional look, values, and legacy. It features an enhanced "about us" section, named "Inside Julia's," which will give you an insider's perspective on the almost 60 year background of our company, as well as an overview of our founding priorities as stated by Jim Julia himself more than 40 years ago! Our company's specialty divisions-Rare Firearms, Fine Art, Asian & Antiques, Lamp & Glass, and Advertising, Toy, & Doll-are each brought to life with wonderful, full color photos of highlights and treasures-many more than we can feature in our print catalogs. The website has been tuned up for speed so it's now faster and easier than ever to explore our current auction offerings, or review our past sales, with our enhanced search functionality. Additional new website features include full specialist biographies; an expanded media area featuring updated announcements, videos, podcasts, and press mentions, and real-time debuts of upcoming auction highlights so you can be the first to learn about exciting new finds for your collection. Of course, our new website includes those innovations you already use-including our industry leading 360 degree view and zoom technologies.

This project reflects the careful input and best thinking of many people who worked tirelessly to bring you the traditional Julia's experience of honesty and transparency right to your home or work computer screen-not an easy task, to say the least! Julia's has always worked very hard to bring constant and meaningful innovation to the antiques and auctions world, and this new website-which works beautifully on computers, tablets, and hand held devices-is our next contribution to our community and industry.

Please visit the new Julia's website today at www.jamesdjulia.com. I am certain you will enjoy our new online experience very much. Please let me know what you think!

Warm Regards,

Mark Ford
