The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show begins this Thursday, August 20, 2015

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 much anticipated Baltimore Summer Antiques Show is finally upon us, opening to the public this Thursday at noon and continuing until Sunday at 6 PM. It’s one of the largest and best shows of the year. Think of it as the Miami Beach show of the summer. Both exhibitors and attendees come from all over the world, including Europe, South America and Japan. If you’re just a mere 3000 miles away, it’s not too far.

There’s still plenty of time to make arrangements to visit the show. I like to use Hotwire for the best deals on hotels. I just checked a 3-day stay in the Baltimore Inner Harbor area (right by the show), starting on Thursday and departing on Sunday and found a 4-star boutique hotel for $73/night. It doesn’t get any better than that. So what’s your excuse?

Some of you may remember the unrest in Baltimore a few months ago. You don’t have to be concerned as it’s totally quiet now and never was near the Inner Harbor in the first place. Be calm and you’ll enjoy the show and Baltimore. There are great restaurants, Harbor activities, street performers, stores, and the National Aquarium. Come to the show and let me know what you think.

Thursday’s post will be from the floor of the show and Monday’s will have the results. Tune in again.

The attendees were completely different than the established Pier Antique Show that takes place in November and March each year, making it a totally different experience.

  1. Not sure which shades you mean. There are tulip shades and there are lily shades. Tulips are larger. What information do you need?
