This show holds a special place in my heart. I remember 15 years ago attending this show and thinking, “I’d like to do this.” Why? Because I was impressed with the quality of the items and their link to the past. Because I loved the amazing amount of material culture from our region and desired to learn more. Because several dealers, who have since become great friends encouraged us to jump in. And so, we took the plunge and became antiques dealers. It is hard work, but interesting work and extremely gratifying when an item finds a loving new home. Below, are some highlights from the booths of my hard working colleagues. I wish I could share the entire show, it was beautiful! Kudos to all and especially to Diana Bittel and Karen & Ralph DiSaia the Show Managers.
