Have you noticed the older you get the faster time passes? Einstein’s Theory of Relativity at work. Well here it is already. The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show will open to the public on Thursday, August 29th, at noon, and continue until Sunday, September 1st, at 6 PM. I was unhappy at first with the change of dates back to the Labor Day weekend, but attendance and business were really good last year, so who am I to argue with success?
I always look forward to this show, especially since there aren’t many great shows left. Many guests travel great distances to visit this show and that includes Europe and Japan. Where else can you see an international selection of the finest antique dealers, all in one location? The show is truly worth a trip from wherever you are. Baltimore has great restaurants, the Inner Harbor, street performers, fine stores, the National Aquarium and of course the best antique show money can buy.
As usual, I’ve been buying the best items I could find in anticipation of the show. I’ll be bringing those items to complement the finest selection of French and American art glass and lamps. It will be the first time the new items will be exhibited for sale.I just checked the rates on Hotwire.com and the price for a 4½-star hotel was as little as $77/night. As a little extra incentive, click here to get two free tickets to the show. If you were on the fence, that should help you make up your mind.
See you soon in Baltimore!
No shows until May when we’ll exhibit at the Chicago Antiques + Art + Design show at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. It’s a beautiful show in a wonderful venue. The dates are May 14-17, 2020. So put it on your calendar and make plans to visit. You’ll thank me.
