The Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair opens this Friday, April 15, 2016

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 Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair in Glencoe opens this Friday, April 15, 2016, at 10 AM, and continues until Sunday, April 17, 2016, at 5 PM. It’s a fun show you’ll be glad you attended, with a great variety of plants, garden items and antiques. The forecast for this coming weekend is sunny, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s — perfect for a day at the show.

We’re loaded for bear with some great French and American glass and lamps and many more bronzes than we usually have. We’ll have everything for sale at the show, including Daum, Gallé and Tiffany glass; many nice Tiffany lamps, a really rare and desirable Daum lamp and lots of other items, too numerous to mention.

The aisles were packed last year in front of our booth

Last year we had a fabulous show, which will be hard to top this year. Our best clients won’t be there because they’re taking a trip to Japan. Hopefully a good percentage of our many clients in the greater Chicago area will attend. After all, we’ve been exhibiting there for over 30 years. We’re in one of the permanent buildings, in a large booth, so we have plenty of room to display our fabulous inventory. If you’re in the greater Chicago area, this is one show that’s worth the trip. Please stop in, say hi, and take a look at our great items, all for sale!
