Just received news of shows for 2013 from my favorite vendor, Marcia @ Cherished Treasures, and thought I would share them with you. You will need a big sheet of paper and a royal seat to write them all down!
Guilford Antiques Show- 2/16 and 2/17 in Guilford, CT
Morristown Armory Show- 2/23 and 2/24 in Morristown, NJ
Piers Show- 3/16 and 3/17 in NYC ***My personal favorite and always a FAB adventure!
Westport Antiques Show- 3/23 and 3/24 in Westport, CT
Danbury Vintage Show- 4/6 and 4/7 in Danbury, CT***If you like clothing, textiles and accessories, this is not to be missed!
Brimfield Antique Show-5/15 through 5/19 in Brimfield, Ma.***The mother of all shows for dealers!
Antiques in the Churchyard (outdoors)- 7/4 in South Salem, NY***I go to this every year without fail and always find a hidden treasure.
Westport Antiques (by the train station) on Sundays outside- 7/7, 7/21, 8/4,and 8/25 in Westport, CT.***This is a kind of flea market/grandma's attic of sorts and you never know what may turn up.
For now, this is enough of a teaser. I have more on my list and know that as the seasons change, some shows will be added.
If you are into vintage finds from Miriam Haskell, Judith Leiber, Hattie Carnegie, Nettie Rosenstein, and the like, in jewelry and accessories, you will be in heaven searching the booths for rare baubles.
If you are like me, always searching for the humorous, the unusual, and the story behind the find, then you will be in Nirvana as I always turn up with something- like the King Tut chair above, and the Jon Bok chair below. Enjoy!
