grove-park-2-2015My 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 National Arts & Crafts Conference will open today, February 20, 2015, in Asheville, NC. We only had one day to set up, instead of the usual two, because the Palm Beach show ended on Tuesday and the Asheville show started setting up on Wednesday. We missed Wednesday’s setup because of the long drive, but we worked diligently and made it happen.

The show is heaven for Arts & Crafts enthusiasts. It includes outstanding dealers specializing in lighting, pottery, art, and furniture. The ballroom is filled with antique dealers, while the outer hallways are filled with reproduction arts & crafts. It’s a great mix.

The show opens today at 1 PM and closes on Sunday at 4 PM. You’ll love the show, so try to make it!


After working hard at five shows in a row, we get to slow down for a little while until our next show, the NYC Pier Antique Show, March 28-29, 2015. I can see St. Maarten in our near future. 🙂
