Celebrity encounters in the antiques business, part IV

Dick Clark

Dick Clark

Kari Wigton, Dick Clark’s third wife, came into my shop at the Manhattan Arts & Antiques Center in the mid 1980s.  She bought a small Pairpoint puffy table lamp.  I invited her and her husband to a preview party at an antiques show at the 67th Street Armory.  She came into my booth, looked at a few items, and then returned with her husband, Dick Clark.  She introduced me to him and he replied “Hi, I’m Dick Clark.”  What a modest and nice guy!  Unlike some other celebrities, what you see is what you get with Dick Clark.  He’s just as nice and friendly in person as what you see on television.  They purchased another lamp that evening.

More celebrities another day.
