The view from the preview party at the Antiques + Modernism Winnetka show, November 2, 2017

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. The weather is getting colder and my show schedule is picking up, so I have gone back to publishing twice weekly.


A view of our booth looking down from the stage

Thursday, 6:30 PM. The preview party has started and as many of you know, I’m not a fan. I suffer through, although good food and drink make them more palatable. The food and drink at this preview party are good, so I’m suffering slightly less, but suffering nonetheless.

The setup went reasonably well, except we were constantly stepping over one another in our small booth. Additionally we had to wait several hours to get electricity. Annoying, but it didn’t prevent us from finishing with plenty of time left over. If I say so myself, the final product is a beautiful booth.

Thursday, 9:30 PM. The party is over and I can’t wait to get to the room and watch Thursday night football. I’m rooting for the Jets.

The hallway was full of people at the party

Attendance was fairly good and there were a few questions, but of course, no sales. As I sit here, the booth is empty and the hallway is filled with people having a grand old time. I’m sorry, but I’m here to do business, not to entertain the local socialites.

Here’s hoping the show goes better than the preview party.

I’ll try to add a few items to my website this weekend. The busier it is, the less time I’ll have, but I should be able. Check my website to see if I was successful.


I will update my site as often as time permits. We’re still very much in business between shows, so please don’t hesitate to email or call. I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
