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.
Today, we started to set up our first show ever in the Kansas City area. It’s the Overland Park Antique Show, to be held at the International Trade Center in Overland Park, KS. It opens to the public on Friday, October 25, at 10 AM and continues until Sunday, October 27, 2013, at 4 PM.
We’ve got a lot riding on this show. If it goes well, we’ll try again next summer on the way to Denver. If we decide not to return, we won’t make a dedicated trip to Denver. It will also impact our decision to exhibit again at the Winnetka Antiques Show next October, which will be held the week before the Overland Park Antique Show. The results of the show will help us decide how to juggle our show schedule, which changes as we add new possibilities and eliminate laggards. Tune in Monday for the results.
In the meantime, Leslie Hindman held a 20th Century Decorative Arts auction today with French glass, which was ON FIYAH! I’ll cover the results in full next Thursday.
Next month we’ll be working from home base, exhibiting at the NYC Pier Show, November 23-24, 2013. The show is under new management, U.S. Antique Shows, which usually portends improvements. That will be our last show of the year, followed by the important Florida shows in January and February.
Click here to view my new website and look around. We always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on our website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps.
I have 2 Martin Brothers vases that I would be interested in consigning with you, but wanted to know more about your conditions of sales, and the process of what you need to know before proceeding. Hope to hear back from you.
