Better yet said, please welcome ME back to my blogspot. I have been terribly remiss and terrifically busy. But I am writing you to tell you that my favorite show of shows is coming to the Churchyard in South Salem, NY this July 4th, Wednesday. It is an all outdoor affair under tents for the most part. Sometimes, so hot and sunny and sometimes so rainy and humid, but always, always, worthwhile!
I believe it is a Cord Show, as usual. They are adept at gathering an eclectic group of regulars as well as attracting small merchants with unique points of views and wares. There is a pancake breakfast if you arrive really early and then there is parking in the meadow alongside the Church.
I have been able, every year I go, to find something worthwhile, unusual, and well priced. The dealers are amiable and willing to negotiate usually.
I am pitching my personal favorite= Cherished Treasures Vintage Jewelry- and mention me to Marcia Chaloux, the wonderful and knowledgable woman behind the table. She has Judith Leiber accessories to Schiaparelli pins and every necklace, bracelet, and earrings you could ever covet in any color or material under the sun.

I recently attended a show up in Rhinebeck, NY on the Duchess County Fairgrounds. Always a treat to be there and see what creative merchandise dealers find. I look forward to going back in the Fall, around October, when it is masterful to see everything and enjoy the fun, carnival pieces they invariably show.

I promise not to ignore my blog again for an undetermined amount of time. I plan on showcasing some of the artists I recently discovered over the summer months.

  1. I pondered to myself recently what were the most important things in my life. The answer seems to be clear that art was up there in importance. Why? Frankly, I don't really know. May be someone here can enlighten me?
    As was my wont w
    hen I have some free time, I browsed the marvelous site,, where they keep thousands of digital images for customers to select to have printed into handsome canvas prints for their homes.
    This image jumped out to jolt my reveries: Still life with bread, by the Cubist Georges Braque. Is art like this picture, as essential as bread and water, or should I say bread and wine?
