Following are just a few comments we have received during our 20 years of publishing the Guide:
It’s the book that people consistently say “That’s how we found you.”
Randy Markens, SF Antique & Design, San Francisco
I definitely have to be in that book.
Fred Salazar, Beggars Banquet, Oakdale CA
This is the book I carry in my car: it’s got maps, it helps me get where I want to go.

It (Cochran's Guide) is the only thing that works anymore.
Bonnie Wixon, Quail Country Antiques, Walnut Creek, CA
I carry my book always, when we take our road trips. It's like my little bible.

Thanks for keeping us all going ...your booklet is the last worthwhile bit of advertising and promo...
Marcia Harding, Cottage Jewel, Danville, CA
This is one of the greatest advertising tools this town can be involved in.
Jan, Home Again Antiques, Aurora, OR
People tell us: Now this is just what we were looking for...
Main Antique Mall, Medford, OR
Two yesterday, and one today who saw the ad in the Guide. They picked one up at Aurora, OR and found us... Jill and I, that way.
Sue Keith, Susantiques, Aloha, OR
The Guide is the most popular book with our customers. Steve Shears, Great American Antique Mall, Paso Robles, CA
My partners in our new store refused to advertise... when I bought them out and started to advertise, my business doubled within three months.
Melanie Shain, Past Perfect, San Francisco
This is the best advertising we have ever done!
Catherine Ebron, Pasttimes, Hesperia, CA
You have got the best thing going.
David Boykin, Antiques at the Bank, Coos Bay, OR
Just have to tell you, someone stopped this noon, and the first thing he said when he got out of the pickup was that he found us in the Guide! He was from California, and is hitting most of the shops in this area.
We have had such tremendous response to our Associate Listings!
Cathy, Soquel Village Antiques, Soquel, CA
My customers are always delighted when I hand them the Bible of Antiques Stores.
Monica Adler, Sundance Antiques, Walnut Creek, CA
