Anticipating another string of shows

Here is an email I just got from the Cord Shows Mgmt. you might enjoy:
Hello Antiques Enthusiast, On Sunday, March 6th, the Cross River Winter Antiques Show will mark our informal start to Spring!  We’ll have approximately 40 booths at John Jay High School, 60 N. Salem Road (Rte. 121 N.), Cross River, NY (Westchester County), 4 miles east of Route 684 exit 6. Look for Ed’s yellow signs. Show hours are from 10 AM – 5 PM (the last admission is always ½ hour before closing).  Admission is $7 (under 13 free) but if you print this email the beneficiary, the PTO, will take off $1. We are happy to tell you that the Jenacks are returning to do appraising between 11 AM and 3 PM for $5 per item (3 items per turn). Bring in just about everything (with age) including jewelry and silver, art, carpets, furniture, glass, china...they seem to know it all!

He will be demonstrating and if you like what you see, he’ll happily take your chair patients with him to Saratoga Springs and make them well. Samet Durmus of The Golden Horn, a fabulous big rug gallery in Port Chester, NY, will be demonstrating rug restoration.  See our website for more information at

Show Updates and Schedules

Some of my favorite vintage/antique vendors have shared their personal schedules with me and I am posting them here for you if you think you can manage time to visit them on your own. I met a new vendor at the last Pier Show called Firehouse Antiques who are from Galena, MD and who had an eclectic gathering of items from old signs to furniture and paintings, which is where I found my new art deco shard table. See picture above. As I was happily walking out with it, a woman came up to me and asked to buy it from me right then and there. She has pursued it for a week but I am loving the table and not selling right now, although, with the caveat, that for the right price, I will sell anything!. I thanked Paul and Douglas for the purchase and they in turn sent me a note telling me the places that they would be showing. I will share that with you: March Pier Show in NYC and April in Chicago for Stella Mgt., Hertans during Brimfield in May and Sept., Nan Gurley's Deerfield in August, July and October in Rhinebeck, and November Pier Show in NYC.

Then, that brings me to Jamie Shenkman @ Jamie's Antiques who always sends me information and complimentary tickets for shows. Her specialties are varied but she always has her jewelry color coordinated so it is easy to find just the right necklace and bracelet and earrings and pins to go with an outfit. In the past, I have mostly zeroed in on her Miriam Haskell items. See some things below. Her next show schedule is:

Feb. 4 and 5 @ Manhattan Vintage Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th ST, NYC -Hrs. Friday 1-8 and Sat. 11-6 Booth 56 with Admission $20. You can visit for more information.
I will post her next show info for next week and the week after on my next posting.
