The Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair opens this Friday, April 19, 2013

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.

It’s been six months since we last exhibited in Chicago. We love the city and have many friends, so we’re excited to be coming back this week to exhibit at two shows, back to back. The first, the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair, starts setting up on Wednesday and opens to the public on Friday, at 10 AM. It continues until Sunday, April 21st, at 5 PM. It’s located at the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, in the beautiful village of Glencoe.

It seems a little strange to exhibit at a Garden Fair, but I’ve been assured that there are enough antiques dealers to call it an “Antiques and Garden Fair”. I hope it works out, especially because the Arlington Racetrack Antiques Show was cancelled. This show could be the perfect replacement. Stella Show Management always does a good job, so we’re confident the show well be well run. Now all we need is for the public to do their part. It would be our pleasure to make the show a permanent addition to our schedule. Click here for more information about the show.

We’re bringing all the goodies we purchased on our recent, successful, European buying trip, as well as our beefed up selection of Tiffany Studios glass and lamps. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in our display. Please try to visit us. If not this week, then the following week at the fabulous Merchandise Mart International Antiques Fair in downtown Chicago.
