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.

The Palm Beach Show Group will hold their first-ever Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show at Chicago’s Navy Pier, starting tomorrow, April 25th, at 11 AM, and ending on Monday, April 28th, at 4 PM. They were able to attract some of the country’s top exhibitors, so the public should get their money’s worth. This is a show that is important enough to warrant travel from any distance. It takes the place of the now defunct Merchandise Mart Antiques Show.

We haven’t exhibited at the Navy Pier in many years. It’s not as comfortable as the Merchandise Mart, but it’s fine, just like other modern convention centers. Setup was smooth, without any of the all-too-frequent annoyances that can slow us down. It will all be worth the effort if business is good. I expect attendance to be good, but that doesn’t always translate to sales. Tune in on Tuesday for the results of the show, as the show ends on Monday.

We'll have this wonderful, rare Daum Blackbird vase for sale at the show.
