The results of the National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Grove Park Inn, February 21-23, 2020


A long line of approximately 200 people wrapped around the bend just before the opening on Friday

The 33rd National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, ended yesterday. We had a decent show, but nothing to write home about. We were breaking even by the end of Saturday and then made a few sales on Sunday to come out a little bit ahead.

There was quite of bit of activity in our booth on Friday
We sold this rare Marblehead vase with herons on Sunday

We didn’t sell anything major, but we sold enough other objects, including Tiffany glass, a superb GallĂ© Cristallerie pitcher and several good pottery vases.

The National Arts & Crafts Conference is one of our most pleasant shows of the year. Dedicated, knowledgeable, friendly buyers fly and drive in from all over the country. We look forward to next year’s show.


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.
