Setting up at The Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair, April 12-14, 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.

Setup for the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques and Garden Fair started this past Tuesday, April 12, 2016, and continues today until the preview party tonight. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Our booth is large enough that we weren’t stepping all over each other. Now that it’s finished, it looks great.

We’re in one of the permanent buildings, while a huge tent has been set up for many of the other antiques dealers. The show is classy, with seriously fine dealers displaying quality merchandise. This is no flea market. The show opens to the public tomorrow, Friday, at 10 AM, and continues until Sunday, 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 all three days is sunny, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. You couldn’t ask for nicer weather for a day at the show.

We’re displaying some of our best antiques ever, with 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, including a rare Nasturtium and lots of other items, too numerous to mention.
